Materials management and detailed planning belong in the control center.
Many companies differentiate between rough and detailed planning. With this subdivision, the planner often discovers difficulties beyond the coming week too late and can no longer react early.
With FEKOR, the separation between rough and detailed planning is no longer necessary. Impending bottlenecks are detected at an early stage and can thus be eliminated by additional shifts or suitable alternatives.
An advanced control centre system such as FEKOR combines materials management and production planning at MES level and thus takes all interdependencies into account.
An example: If an order is brought forward and he removes the material from another order, the control center automatically shifts the “stolen” order to a point in time after the next material delivery.
In addition, a control center works fundamentally differently from an ERP system: ultimately, it represents the entire reality of a production plant, knows the resources, the rules and the alternatives, and can optimize them: If an article may not be operated in the night shift, because otherwise an increased reject rate would have to be expected, then he does not plan this. And if cheaper alternatives arise in the short term, he implements them. The link between production planning and materials management also makes it possible to adapt the order proposals to the specifically planned production orders. For a user, such a change has permanently reduced inventories by 30 percent.
