The high setup times and setup costs offer potential savings in production planning. These are caused by the conversion of the machines and the associated standstill of the production facilities and high personnel costs. The focus of production planning is the calculation and reduction of set-up times and costs. The aim is to avoid cost-intensive set-up, waiting and idle times through sensible sequence planning.
Minimizing setup times in production is a complex issue. However, there is one way to achieve short set-up times quickly and easily: article classification.
On some systems, this method can halve set-up times simply by skilfully combining the production sequence.
Based on the experience we have gained with our customers over the last 40 years, planning with FEKOR offers you great potential for optimization, especially in terms of reducing costs.
