Manufacturing Scheduling Software

Manufacturing Scheduling Software: Benefits

MJC²'s manufacturing optimization software drives increased efficiency, capacity and flexibility in large, complex production operations.

Our software has delivered substantial cost and environmental benefits in a wide range of manufacturing operations, such as

  • Food & Beverages: real-time and strategic planning of food and drinks manufacturing operations, optimizing production sequences and line schedules while maintaining inventory of short shelf-life goods within agreed parameters.
  • Building Materials: optimization of distributed manufacturing operations and multiple stakeholders collaboratively managing inventory.
  • Engineering & Aerospace:: advanced graphical tools to control complex production processes and manipulate very large factory planning datasets.
  • Textiles & Fashion: collaborative production scheduling and optimization along the supply chain, dynamically responding to unexpected sales patterns.

Operational and Environmental Benefits

Operational Efficiency

MJC²'s PIMSS software increases resource utilisation and service levels through its ability to optimize and reschedule in response to changing demands.

Better utilization of equipment and labour means increased capacity at no extra cost, while minimising and sequencing correctly changeovers leads to less downtime spent cleaning and resetting machines.

Increased flexibility and agility results in better customer service, with fewer stock-outs and faster response to orders, while automated AI-based planning can also reduce employee overtime and reduce staffing costs.

Environmental & Sustainability

Our inventory optimization and production planning solutions result in less waste, especially in operations which handle short shelf-life products: less over-production, fewer out-of-codes, and more balanced inventory levels.

Less waste and lower energy usage means reduced overall environmental impact in terms of CO2 and other GHG emissions, as well as water and energy usage.

Better planning of shifts and task allocations not only reduces personnel costs, but leads to a better work-life balance for employees, with greater opportunities for flexible work patterns and less need for last-minute requests to cover overtime or additional shifts.

Strategic Optimization

Integration of our production planning software with supply chain resilience algorithms provides a powerful strategic planning toolset to allow forward planning and what-if scenario analysis.

For distributed international manufacturing supply chains, resilience strategies can be developed, creating contingency plans for major disruptions to the supply chain such as the failure of an important supplier or the closure of a major rail link or port due to political upheavals or natural disasters.
