Intelligent capacity planning with real-time logistics
Planning processes today still give the impression that they must be time-consuming to cover many eventualities, only for people to find out at some point that plans were either wrong or simply too rigid. However, especially for a global supply chain it is commonplace for orders to change at short notice and for unpredictable events to take place. In such cases, a business needs to react in the best possible way. Intelligent capacity planning provides a solution, making it possible to manage even challenging and complex processes in production and logistics so that the demand and capacity remain in perfect balance.
Responsive, future-proof and “what if”
Rush orders, seasonal fluctuations in capacity, and short-term bottlenecks caused by events such as machine failure, supplier problems, and absent employees have the potential to sew chaos in production and to minimize a company’s profitability. Intelligent capacity planning counteracts these risks by providing a transparent picture of resource availability and capacity utilization in real time. Running utilization forecasts and what-if scenarios can support resource planning, leading to more dynamic and flexible scheduling.
