The Tricky Enterprise Applications Needs of Plastics Producers
General enterprise resource planning (ERP) providers, even those which are viable companies with a solid product, typically do not meet the tricky requirements

finite scheduler  across multiple sites; and finite planning encompassing real-time control of the factory floor. Again, these are all within the realm of the majority of major ERP and SCM software systems, but this is quite deceptive—the fact remains that these system offerings do not necessarily address the needs of the plastics industry simply because these needs are similar to nearly all discrete manufacturing environments. Yet, the Devil (Typically) Lies in the Details Consequently, many enterprise applications

How Much Supply Chain Optimization Do We Really Need? - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series introduced the concept of (Rapid) Response Management in the realm of supply chain management (SCM) via a software category pioneer, Kinaxis.

Master Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling Software: Hard Facts Part Two: Materials Requirement Planning and Master Production Scheduling


Most of the manufacturing software vendors have planning and scheduling software which assume either infinite production capacity for calculating quantities of raw material and work in progress (WIP) requirements or infinite quantities of raw and WIP materials for calculating production capacity. There are many problems with this approach. This paper discusses the pitfalls of this approach and how to avoid these by making sure that the software you buy indeed takes into account finite quantities of required materials as well as finite capacities of work centers in your manufacturing facility.

Unfortunately, due to the complex requirements for making manufacturing planning and scheduling software, some vendors take the easy route of planning for quantities of materials by assuming infinite production capacity. This has resulted in proliferation of software products which do not meet production requirements. Fortunately though, there are some vendors who have labored hard to come up with really exciting software which Read More
