Finite Capacity Manufacturing Planning and Scheduling (MPS)

How can one optimize production capacities along the tactical horizon while accounting for the products and constraints of existing resources?

The key is to implement a finite capacity planning process. Whether in a process industry or a discreet logic, you should take into account all relevant parameters for determining possible production levels - to deliver the right products at the right time within the network. Without deteriorating production costs.

Finite capacity uses complex algorithms, giving you the capability to build schedulable, realistic plans very quickly. Of course, these plans must be revised and adapted to take into account the inherent hazards that come with all such industrial activities.

Despite the many contributions of this technology, it can never replace the human touch and the decision-making skills of an actual demand planner.

Success Story Videos



"Production Planning is key for us because it's a way to analyse the capacities and to anticipate the needs." Odile Daragon, Project Manager ARaymond



"We have a very cooperative partnership and we are running together a very successful project, which was on time and within the costs." Stefan Stucki, Finance Director Wander

"Thanks to QAD DynaSys DSCP, our inventory reduced from 48 to 18 days while service level increased from 98.5 to 99%."

Supply Chain Director, CEMOI Group

"The QAD DynaSys tools are efficient, enabling us to carry out rapid, detailed, accurate and reliable analysis which is, in a word, relevant. Our Service levels were maintained while the longest lead-time was reduced from 14 to 6 weeks."
