FLEXSCHE - production scheduler and production planning > Products > FLEXSCHE d-MPS


What is always annoying is "the uncertainty and short-range fluctuations of the demand", for the industry that has to predict the demand to produce (such as the commodity makers and the food makers), or the industry that has to precedingly produce based on the unofficial annoucement (such as the automobile component makers and the electronic parts makers). It is quite difficult to control the inventory volume to fill the gap between the day-to-day production and the fixed demand. Even just a little careless operation of accelerators and brakes for each of various kinds of products immediately piles up extra inventories or conversely, causes sudden stockouts. Manufacturing floor would be swayed and confused by fluctuations.

Is it because of the low accuracy of the demand forecast? Because the stock level was set too low? Because the meeting is not much held about manufacturing and selling coordination? Such is not the true nature of the problem. The problem is that it lacks the mechanism to foresee the possibility of the trouble and to cope with it quickly and approriately. To simulate the future with precision, to observe and compare the transition of estimated demand and possible supply, and to quickly deal with the trouble in need: these are the right approach to the "uncertainty and short-range fluctuations of the demand".

Since the demand has the probabilistic range and fluctuates from day to day, it should not be the request amount to the factory as it is. Only by deciding the request amount independently, while considering the transition of the future demand, the manufacturing floor would be prevented from confusion and be able to cope with the red light in case of need.

To visualize the balance of transitions of the demand and supply, and understand them correctly. To appropriately determine the request amount to the factory. To calculate the supply based on the accurate production capacity of the factory. These can never be achieved by the business cycle relying on the conventional MPS (Master Production Schedule) and the manufacturing and selling coordination processes.

Always observing the future supply and demand balance, foreseeing the excess or deficiency, and adjusting the request amount promptly and accurately...such ordinary and yet previously unpracticable production planning solution, answering the earnest demands from the manufacturing industry is,FLEXSCHE d-MPS,which we provide.
