Real-time Production Scheduling and the 3 Shop Floor Fundamentals

Every person in any company that has a manufacturing shop floor really needs to be able to answer these three fundamental questions:

1) What job should I work on next (shop-wide, or in any dept/work center)?

2) Where is the job, how is it progressing?

3) How can I tell my customer – with confidence! – when they’re going to get their order?

With Protected Flow Manufacturing™ you get Visibility, Control and Freedom.

See how in the video below.


“Having PFM just when orders began to pour in is proving to be very valuable. We can now see the load against all resources going forward into the future and most importantly see which ones are likely to be bottlenecks and which orders are unlikely to be delivered on time. Graphicast is now experiencing a very dynamic environment and we are determined not to be swamped by sudden success. We now know when each production order is likely to finish and let our customers know accordingly. If we must add additional capacity, we’re confident that doing so will improve on time delivery and throughput. Now we understand and see clearly what will happen to all deliveries by accepting that extra order.”
