Manufacturing processes consist of three phases: Casting, machining, and assembly. The assembly stage is controlled by the central planning system, while machining and casting processes are planned individually by their respective departments. This leads to conflicts in communication and coordination, increased inventory stocks, and unreliability across departments as to when a processed part can be expected.
The only solution in sight is the Asprova production scheduling system - this is clear from the beginning, because it is the market leader in Japan! After implementation, the entire factory is planned for centrally. Work instructions issued help in synchronizing processes and eliminating bottlenecks, as well as vastly reducing excess inventory stocks.
