Planning & scheduling

Our solutions help our customers to modernize business processes, reduce production costs, accurately fulfill obligations for the execution and shipment of orders.

Effective planning system and synchronization of the work of all divisions help manufacturers to:

  • Reduce the level of unfinished production
  • Ensure high level of completeness and timely delivery of units to the assembly site of finished products
  • Shorten lead-time
  • Reduce production stocks

The solution supports for multiple manufacturing models such as MTS, MTO ETO, CTO, ATO and covers three planning horizons:

  • Master Production Schedule (MPS)
  • Materials Planning (procurement)
  • Scheduling (production orders)

Usually customer-focused manufacturing companies use several types of production, including Manufacturing-to-Stock (MTS).

IPL Consulting solutions based on Infor LN allow to implement various scenarios of production planning and management.

The main business processes that the Planning solution covers are:

  • Creation of a unified planning system for the working design documentation development, procurement, and production
  • Forecasting and modeling the demand for the company’s products
  • The planned date definition of finished products shipment just in time of product ordering in accordance with production restrictions
