June 24th 2021
Advanced Manufacturing Planning and Scheduling system installed
We are pleased to announce the installation of a new advanced manufacturing planning and scheduling system, a product called Preactor. As well as the integration and configuration of the software with existing software systems used by the company, the project will include the up-skilling of staff to be able to use the new capability to deliver the full benefits to the business. The advancement in adopting this system will provide clarity and visibility of what the plant is capable of by virtue of using advanced algorithms that balance demand and capacity to generate achievable production schedules.
