The goals of the CTP Check (Capable to Promise) include meeting deadlines and reducing production costs. In connection with cut optimization, additional objectives such as reducing cutting costs, cutting waste (value of raw materials) and cutting duration can be included, as well as taking available batches into account and prioritizing them based on age.
These and other influence factors are given various weights and combined in a total cost function. The total cost function builds a foundation for the optimization according to result findings. As a result, production costs sink and planning security within production increases.
