Benefits of Planvisage Solution

Some of the benefits Aquasub saw using Planvisage solution is:

• The effect of delay in the sales orders while pulling one particular sales order in advance

can be tracked clearly. The effective combination of dates are taken into account

and the new commitment dates are given by the management with out creating much

impact on the delivery dates of other sales orders.

• All the bottleneck resources were identified

and effectively loaded. Developed certain sub-contractors to perform those activities which helped to reduced load on bottleneck resources.

• Considerable improvement in meeting the customer delivery date.

• Machine loading chart is issued to the shop floor on the weekly basis. The planning department concentrates on the development and improvement of process capability work since their regular work was automated

• Inventory pile up was reduced by exactly knowing the dependent demand

• Transfer batch quantities were introduced which reduced the total cycle time. The stagnant of materials between the stages were reduced through proper balancing of supply and demand chain.

• Frequent changes in the setup were minimized.

• Effective utilization of alternate resources was improved.
