A plastic injection mold or punching die consists of many mechanical primary components and hundreds of subsidiary parts. Many of these components have different production lead times on the same assembly and need to be ready at a precise time. Producing these components synchronously as well as coinciding the the start dates for pre-assembly and final assembly is a real challenge. Here, exact sequencing is a prerequisite for flawless process synchronization.
Many sub-components are produced on the same resource at different processing times—when there are many open orders for different items, Asprova will automatically sequence production so that a resource is used efficiently while at the same time avoid work-in-process buildup.
When a complex order suddenly needs to be finished fast, other orders might be held up because of competing machine use time among orders with different production priorities. Asprova can optimize your schedule so that unnecessary idle times are kept to a minimum.
