The planning module combines power and flexibility to automatically generate production plans that synchronize and optimize manufacturing operations. Multiple constraints as well as user preferences and business goals are considered to ensure that production plans reflect the user's unique operating environment. Intelligent algorithms utilize customer order and forecast information together with information concerning resource capacity and capabilities and user preferences and priorities to:

  • Balance capacity usage
  • Optimize setups
  • Optimize resource utilization
  • Perform EOQ analysis
  • Automatically identify and minimize bottlenecks
  • Reduce cycle times
  • Increase throughput
  • Improve on-time delivery
  • Synchronize production; and
  • Reduce work in process

ComMIT Plan has a unique "parameters based" design that allows business strategy parameters such as demand fluctuations, to be automatically incorporated into the production plan calculations together with a large number of operating parameters. As a result, production plans will be more realistic and automatically synchronized with overall business objectives. This flexible design also ensures that production plans reflect changes in strategy or market conditions much more quickly than would otherwise be possible.

Also features tool management, overtime and weekend management, subcontracting management, and simulation "what if" analysis.
