Create Schedule

The activities associated with validating material and production asset availability, assigning orders to production assets, sequencing production activities and monitoring and correcting production progress. This may include creating or approving Requisitions (for Production Orders) recommended and/or created by the Production Planning process.

This is a Make-to-Stock process; Demand is aggregated to optimal quantities to produce. Planning and scheduling primarily focus on optimizing throughput (capacity utilization) and efficiency.

Use Cases

Notes

Typically Create Schedule involves converting the daily or weekly production plan into smaller segments. Examples of schedule segments are: shifts, production/assembly lines, processing units, production/assembly cells. Other aspects to consider in production scheduling are timing of material and labor availability, sequencing for size, grade, color, contamination, batch sizes, maintenance schedules, regulatory compliance, mix flexibility. Production plans may consider some of these aspects, but generally production plans do not need this level of granularity for planning purposes.

This process is generally supported by a Shop Floor Control System or Manufacturing Execution System. Make Cycle Time Days Of WIP Inventory Days Of Finished Goods Inventory Bill Of Materials Manufacturing BOM Work Order Plan-to-Product
