The Veritas AG uses ORSOFT SCHEDULE++ at the Gelnhausen site with the functional scope of production levelling and smoothing
The software solution is set for a rolling daily production scheduling of finished goods on assembly lines.
All production orders in the considered timeline, which are created by the overnight run of the ERP system based on customer requirements, will be assigned to production days. A user-driven mathematical optimization process, that assists users in terms of suitable assignment, considers available resources and adherence of delivery dates as well as compliance with a balanced product mix for each day. This product mix is necessary because of the constant sales demand on in-house production of preliminary products and commodities. As a result of this levelling optimization, the entire multistage process – including subcontracting requirements – benefits from the approach of assembly planning. For this purpose the ORSOFT scheduling solution is integrated in the daily running demand calculation of the ORDAT FOSS ERP System. Currently the solution is used by eight planners in Gelnhausen. Further roll-outs, particularly in Hungary, are scheduled for 2014.
