Simplify and optimize finite capacity production planning

Op.pla meets the needs of those involved in production planning, starting from scheduling, until the simulation of unexpected scenarios.
  • Business side: it allows to know the plant load, the state of orders and to provide clients with realistic delivery dates;
  • Operational side: it makes it possible to define priorities between production orders;
  • Decision-making side: it enables the supply chain planning and managing, the knowledge of the actual availability of resources and the simulation of unexpected scenarios.
As a production scheduler Op.pla has interfaces for other management systems, such as ERP, MES and data collection and analysis applications, guaranteeing consistency in the flow of information.

Main features and benefits
available through Op.pla:

REDUCE LEAD TIMES AND WIP

Based on a finite capacity optimizer, Op.pla suggests the best possible sequence for production orders according to the "critical chain / buffer" management approach, which avoids fine-grained scheduling, but focuses on reducing lead time and increasing general efficiency.

INCREASE ON-TIME DELIVERIES

For each optimized order, Op.pla automatically calculates a deployment priority, which is displayed simply through a color-coding system, in relation to the estimated time to completion and the remaining time in the safety buffer. The program will then display orders that have a high chance of being late, compared to other orders that are proceeding as planned, in different colors. Based on the priorities suggested by Op.pla, operators are tasked with creating the daily production schedule and reporting how much was actually produced so that the information is passed on automatically to the management system and used in subsequent optimizations.

PREDICTIVE DATA ANALYSIS

Capability to make decisions based on data and simulate potential scenarios to anticipate problems.

GENERATION OF CORPORATE VALUE

Simplification and factual description of planning methods using fewer resources for scheduling and planning, thereby dedicating more resources to monitoring. Planning and organization thus become a corporate asset that relieves resources of automated and habitual tasks, allowing more time to perform analyses that create great value for the company.

CLOUD AND ON PREMISES AVAILABILITY

Op.pla is available as SaaS, with dedicated infrastructure on Cloud, or On Premises for all scenarios where there is some criticality in exposing customer data externally.

ADAPTABLE TO ALL INDUSTRIES

Op.pla is compatible with the most popular IoT systems and Industry 4.0 enabling technologies currently in place and used in all industries.
