Nulogy, a leading provider of agile supply chain solutions, has launched its Production Scheduling Solution to help users quickly and efficiently respond to customer orders and allocate labour and production capacity against the fluctuating demands of the current consumer goods market.
As fast-moving consumer goods manufacturing continues to evolve at an unprecedented pace, contract suppliers often manage multiple customers and short production runs, resulting in a highly dynamic and complex production scheduling environment.
Nulogy’s Production Scheduling Solution is designed to help users deal more effectively with these challenges, providing an intuitive, real-time visualisation tool that enables quick assessment and optimisation of production schedules. Multiple constraining factors, such as order promise date, planned downtimes, changeovers, staffing, material availability, run rates by product and equipment, and more are all accounted for. By enabling greater data automation, production scheduling can help manage dynamic work order environments with greater efficiency and accuracy, bolstering On-Time In-Full (OTIF) delivery performance and operational efficiency.
“Technologically-enabled contract manufacturers and co-packers are critical to giving consumer brands the data needed to rapidly adjust to a fast-paced market,” says Josephine Coombe, Managing Director for Nulogy in Europe.
“Through the development of new products such as Production Scheduling, the Nulogy platform is continuously evolving to meet the needs of our partners in consumer brands’ external supply chains.”
