We take Production Planning to a whole new level via tight integration between planned schedule and resource availability. We detect tank usage conflicts, control and validate intermediate lots, trace component production via lot control, integrate with Quality Control and with Production / Batch Control and alert planners and designated personnel to deviations from the planned production levels.
Our core planning tools enable Production Scheduling for processing equipment such as Refining, Deodorization, Interesterification, Hydrogenation, Bleaching, Dewaxing, etc. Planners can schedule blends of product, transfers between storage tanks, product receiving and loading. We verify Bill of Materials and allow for planned adjustments in ratios when blends are made. We have a Recipe Management module that enables equipment-specific or product-specific recipe creation that guides the production execution process.
Our Integrated Planning Module makes suggested production plans based on Bill of Materials, available product inventory and plant model constraints. This enables analysis of complex production run chains in minutes.
We let planners see planned and actual tank inventory. We collect tank inventory data through integration with SCADA systems or through manual input.
