Accelerate On-Time Delivery in Manufacturing: Webinar Series
We’re addressing the “Late Problem” in manufacturing through a multi-part lunch & learn series. Join us for this four-week, virtual series packed with insights and actionable recommendations. We’ll walk you through the method and tools that solve the hard problem of achieving consistent on-time delivery (OTD) in high-mix manufacturing environments.
Here is what we will cover throughout the 4-week series:

Three Principles that Fix the Late Problem.
Introducing the Dynamic Production Method for Manufacturing.
We’ll kick off our webinar series with a quick introduction to the Dynamic Production Method (DPM). This new methodology is built on three Performance Principles:
- Pragmatic Planning
- Proper Pacing
- Predictive Prioritization
The key question we’ll cover: “What do I work on now, and what do I work on next?”
We’ll also share proper steps to execution and visibility of real-time priorities and job status using PFM.

Let’s Talk Materials. Where Are My Materials?
Gain visibility into materials status to keep jobs moving, even with supply chain uncertainty.
Materials Planning can be as tough as production scheduling. Stocking up too early causes inventory and cash flow issues, but waiting too late is always bad news for on-time delivery (OTD). In this session, we’ll talk about how to buy the right amount of materials, at the right time, to get more jobs started and finished on time.
The key question we’ll cover: “Do I have the materials I need, or can I see when they will arrive?”

Answering Critical Questions for on-time delivery (OTD).
When Can My Customers Get Their Orders? Modeling production workflows with predictive planning & identifying load/capacity bottlenecks.
Accurate predictions require advanced analytics and the right inputs. In this session, we’ll walk through how PFM™ helps identify load/capacity bottlenecks, understand the impact of new orders, and build a game plan.
The key question we’ll cover: “How can I confidently tell my customers when they will get their orders?”

Advanced Future Modeling for Production
Playing the “What If” Game. Testing alternate future modeling predictions to pick your best game plan.
The reason the late problem is so hard to solve in high-mix manufacturing environments is because there are so many variables. But with predictive modeling, you can adjust and alter factors and see how they impact your on-time delivery (OTD) predictions.
The key question we’ll cover: “If I change the constraints or assumptions in my model, how does this change my plan of action?”
