Optimizing production plans is a complicated task for any Operations manager. There are numerous challenges which need to be addressed. How to optimize production without losing demand sensing? How long should a production cycle be? How to build an optimal production schedule?
EyeOn can help you to solve this puzzle using a structured and comprehensive approach called “Production Wheels”. They are most beneficial in industries with continuous manufacturing processes involving chemical and mechanical transformations, and where changeovers between products have a significant impact. These industries include but are not limited to production of industrial and decorative paints, processed foods and beverages, metals, paper and plastic packaging, fibres, carpets, glass, and ceramics. EyeOn also developed a Production Wheel optimization toolkit that supports fast scenario-based and can provides useful visual insights on your processes.
Although setting up production wheels can seem complex, the benefits for planning & scheduling become evident very soon. They include improved operational output, reduced change-over impacts and optimized inventory levels. Not to mention the reduced overall supply chain costs of course! Our Industry experts will ensure smooth and efficient implementation. EyeOn’s experience of implementing this approach for one of our clients became a good showcase of a successful project – an outcome with significant benefits, both in terms of process efficiency and cost savings.
