Production Planning & Control
Production planning and control ensures that the existing production capacities are used efficiently, taking into account logistics targets such as low inventories, short throughput times, and high delivery reliability. The depth of added value, the product range, and the demand behavior of the customers influence the individual target system in order to maximize the market-dependent competitive factors.
If you want more transparency about the processes and costs in your production, you can set up a basis for evaluation in form of production controlling, consisting of key figures, technologies, and processes for the shop floor. FIR supports you with technical and methodical expertise for different questions and problems. In addition, we offer know-how and experience in the targeted statistical analysis of throughput times, malfunctions, and process costs.
In addition to analyzing your production processes, we also support you in selecting the right IT system to coordinate manufacturing and production orders, i.e. a Manufacturing Execution System. In this way, you avoid overly high investment costs for the introduction of a business application system that meets your requirements to a limited extent only.
Many companies already have powerful software for production planning and control. As part of the optimization of production control, we examine whether the selected control strategies still fit your production. We then work with your experts to develop tailor-made strategies to increase production efficiency.
