Production scheduling: the importance of details

The world is not perfect. Theory does not always coincide with practice. Suppliers are late, machines break down, customers change their minds, and most often in the least expected moment. Every, even the smallest, detail has an impact on the efficiency of the company’s operations, and it is maintained at the expense of people, quality or time. These actions often lead to losses that could easily be avoided. The only question is: how?

 

Challenge: a holistic approach

The main challenge in production scheduling is not to create a plan, but rather to optimize the production process. It can only be started when we are able to look at the process as a whole, and not as separate elements. Recognize its individual stages, limitations and mutually penetrating streams of values. Go from a fragmentary approach to a holistic approach.

Solution: process coordination

The achievement of smooth and stable production scheduling is possible on one condition - all the key processes must be covered by a detailed and precise schedule that takes into account all the relevant limitations. With today’s dynamically changing world, it requires a flexible approach and a high level of awareness of the people who are responsible for the next stages of the process. Discovering the sheer size of the potential that lies in the coordination of processes and the elimination of all the losses that occur in them (with special regard to unnecessary waiting times and overproduction) guarantees the continuous improvement of processes, and thus continuous development.

    I rate the cooperation with eq system specialists very highly - a very professional team with extensive expertise and knowledge of the details (challenges and limitations) of our industry. The people we worked with were always eager to listen to our suggestions and to answer many questions. In particular, I value eq system for their “honest approach” - if they think that some functionality is not needed, they simply advise against it. I recommend eq system to everyone who is looking for a reliable and honest business partner

    eq system specialists are people with many years of experience, which could be seen at every stage of the project. Their extensive competences have allowed us to precisely define the individual requirements of our organization and to effectively implement the corresponding solutions.

    My assessment of our current cooperation with the specialists at eq system is very good. The level of competence of the people we work with is impressive, just like their approach, both to the project itself and to our specialists. The implementation of this project is based on close cooperation between our companies, which makes me very happy. After completing the analytical project, we were still getting all the details of the concept - eq system specialists once again assured us that our decision to cooperate with them was a good business decision.

    First, I would like to mention that as early as at the audit stage, eq system specialists solved our problems, which we had been unable to cope with for several years - not because we did not have the proper knowledge, but because we lacked the right tools. The cooperation with eq system was very efficient, and we received almost immediately the additional materials and information that we asked for. All the employees of Huf Polska, who were to be involved in the audit, received the agenda with the expected time in advance. We also appreciate the fact that, as a result of the audit, a detailed concept was created, which constitutes an annex to the concluded contract. It includes all our expectations and a proposal to meet them.

    What convinced us to cooperate with eq system was the way the company's experts presented the solution. Everything was at the highest level - competence, knowledge of our industry and the solution itself. None of the questions we asked were left unanswered. There was a priority effect - a good presentation which projected on all subsequent elements – that was our reference point.

    In the choice of the system, our previous experience in cooperation with the company, eq system, was not insignificant. Starting from the webinar about APS, which for us was the beginning of practical learning about Asprova and eq system, through the workshop organized for the planners in our company, to the preparation of pre-implementation analysis, the company showed professionalism and experience. When working with eq system, we also value the process approach of the consultants, which is particularly important in the area of planning and constitutes the prognosis of the project’s success.

    During the many years of our cooperation, eq system specialists have often proved that they know the production processes in the smallest detail. What’s more, they are people who can look at the company as a whole, not as separate elements. As a result, they are able to predict the consequences of the implemented improvements on the functioning of the entire organization, and thus prepare it to use the potential of the introduced changes. Therefore, we had no doubts about the choice of a company that would help us improve the data analysis processes.
