Production scheduling is expected to satisfy two fundamental objectives - prediction and execution.

WM Synergy’s Production Scheduling Quick-Start Program evaluates and benchmarks your manufacturing approach in terms of both your predictive capability as well as the effectiveness of your subsequent execution. We’ll help you assess your methods, processes, and technologies to provide clear, measurable recommendations for improvements and an option that allows you to leverage our world class team to achieve your objectives.

Before, the shop foreman would have multiple meetings per day with the person who ran the schedule to determine what’s next on that machine. Now it’s self-serve. From the shop foreman to the quality department, everybody has their own personalized display that’s tied to their schedule. It’s almost like a Taco Bell board. The job at the top is the first job to be worked on and that’s for each resource whether it’s quality control or one of the CNC machines. It’s a huge time saver!

WM Synergy helped Howard Glass locate workstations on the shop floor so that workers can easily and efficiently clock in and out of work in process. The solution does more than empower Howard Glass to definitively answer the customer’s question, ‘When’s my order shipping?’ Tracking the time spent on specific jobs and work orders has afforded a greater level of insight into labor costs; in turn empowering Howard Glass to quote more accurately, competitively, and profitably.

 Dynamic Production Method (DPM)

Dynamic Production Method (DPM)

The Dynamic Production Method solves the persistent problems that interfere with OTD in high-mix manufacturing environments.

DPM is founded on 3 Performance Principles:

  • Pragmatic Planning – Anticipate variability for when “stuff happens”
  • Proper Pacing – Control material entering WIP
  • Predictive Prioritization – Know what to work on next

PFM™ is the platform for implementing DPM:

  • Dynamic, Real-time Execution Plan
  • Real-time Material Visibility
  • Tactical Approach to Improving Production Flow
  • Future Visibility of Resource Load, Material and Constraints
  • What-if planning
