While market demands and customer expectations are changing rapidly, conventional factory scheduling remains a challenge. In the era of Industry 4.0, manufacturers are embracing digitized models with effective planning-control systems to strengthen operations.
Wipro’s Manufacturing Adaptive Scheduler (Mfg AdaS), built on the SAP Business Technology Platform, enhances the accuracy and capabilities of key manufacturing processes, including scheduling and supply-chain planning.
The Manufacturing Adaptive Scheduler acts as a conduit between planning and execution to help manufacturers translate plans into finite shop-floor schedules by handling non-linear, complex constraints. It provides accurate daily/sub-daily schedules, true bottleneck identification, and dynamic bottleneck management for flawless operations and more realistic shop floor schedules.
By managing constraints and resolving critical issues in real time, the Manufacturing Adaptive Scheduler also accelerates plan-to-produce cycles and increases scheduling accuracy. Its lean implementation and maintenance cycle supports complete utilization of critical resources, 100% order fulfilment, more reliable order-promise dates, and lower total cost of ownership.
