Oracle® Production Scheduling (PS), designed for schedulers by schedulers, enables you to take control of your production scheduling problem, and helps you to maximize shop floor throughput while optimizing resource investment. You can optimize the usage of your critical resources, calculate realistic and feasible schedules that the shop floor can execute, and easily determine the schedule that best meets your objectives. In addition, you can leverage the out-of-the-box integration with the Oracle® E-Business Suite (discrete, process, and lot-based manufacturing) to implement quickly and obtain immediate value.
- Maximize throughput of bottleneck resources – Simultaneously consider capacity and calendar constraints on machines, crews and tools with automatic floating bottleneck detection to optimally schedule your shop floor. Create feasible schedules using sequence dependent setup minimization and campaign run optimization.
- Improve shop floor performance – Schedulers can minimize the effect of unplanned downtime, easily identify exceptions, and use a powerful drag-and-drop scheduling workbench to quickly adjust schedules.
- Quickly determine the best production schedule – Fast easy simulation enables your schedules to quickly compare scenarios and key performance indicators before deciding which schedule to release for execution. Planners can also review both planned and actual production orders to make their decisions.
- Implement quickly by leveraging out-of-the-box integration – Production Scheduling is fully integrated with the Oracle E-Business Suite, enabling you to start quickly by leveraging existing setup. It supports discrete, process, and lot-based manufacturing without the need for extensive configuration.
