Webcast Introduces Planning, Scheduling Software to Support Lean ManufacturingJuly 1, 2008
On May 13, Epicor Software Corp. and MetalForming cooperated to produce a 30-min. webcast, Boost Results in Lean Strategies with Advanced Planning and Scheduling. Epicor’s Christine Hansen discussed how best-in-class manufacturers apply state-of-the-art scheduling practices and software to meet tight delivery schedules, while continuing to provide more and more manufacturing operations for their customers. The key, which Hansen explained in detail, is maintaining responsiveness and flexibility in scheduling.
Other topics presented included managing of multiple constraints for an operation—equipment, tooling and operator; using visual drag-and-drop scheduling techniques; and incorporating material planning into the scheduling process.
