“FELTEN group provides new product on Best Practice Day advantage in production management at the 25.10.2012 in the Gelsenkirchener Veltins-arena before the FELTEN group puts on its best Practice Day” on October 25, 2012 in the Gelsenkirchener Veltins arena a new module PILOT Scheduler “to the detailed planning of the production. The lean production approach creates this solution significantly shorter lead times, reduced inventories substantially and leads to significant savings in the fixed and variable costs. A complete representation of the production belongs to the range of PILOT Scheduler”in its current state, as well as in the perspective. Since this solution takes into account more than 2,400 different parameters with more than 4,000 properties in the areas of resources, processes, order processing, raw material and quality, makes PILOT Scheduler”from all standard situations typical in the production. This creates the advantage that normally no additional programming is required, to individual requirements in the software to take over. Also arise significant advantages in the synchronization of the entire production process.
Traditional ERP or MES systems can not reliably fulfil this task, therefore it is typically one of the biggest challenges for the production planning. She is in PILOT Scheduler standard features “through a specially developed and applied very complex scheduling logic. As a result, this leads to a significant reduction in turnaround times and inventory levels. Also accelerates the intelligent scheduling logic of the PILOT module with its numerous best practice parameters the production process by, for example, calculations with limited resources or bottleneck calculations are performed. Necessary changes in the processes of that may arise, for example, on the part of the customer or supplier but have also internal causes such as employee or machine failures, are calculated in seconds. Using the logic of this planning, the solution allows also an optimal Timing of upgrading, not to obstruct the flow of production. Also a Visual management of the detailed planning of the production belongs to the other main functions of PILOT Scheduler”. This represented the entire production process from the customer order to delivery in Gantt charts.
This also applies to the visualization of the preview in the emerging problems such as delays in delivery are instantly recognizable. In addition, the accompanying information can be displayed. This glimpse into the future can be adjusted for several months. PILOT Scheduler”provides a simple integration, because this solution uses existing interfaces and thus provides easy connection to all common databases. No integration problems arise even in heterogeneous system environments. In addition, many ERP interfaces are about to SAP and other market-established business systems.
