Cable Manufacturing Planning with Asprova APS System

Success through Process Tacting and Optimal Order Sequencing

Cable Manufacturing Processes range from copper wire drawing, extrusion of individual cores, and cable sheathing to various other, specific processes that depend on cable type. In addition to varying numbers of processes (up to 15), a host of process routes need to be account and planned for.

  • Holistic Process Synchronization
  • Minimized Lead Times and Inventory Stocks
  • Flawless Delivery Reliability

Challenges

  • Shortened Deliver Time
  • Radical Reduction in Total Production Lead Time through Bottlened-Oriented Planning
  • Massively Decreased Intermediate Product Inventories
  • Order Processing in Optimal Sequence for Drawing Processes, Extrusion Processes, Standing Processes, etc.
  • Planning Alternative Routes
  • Preferred Routes and Resources
  • Consideration of Material Availability
  • Maximized Flexibility
  • Bottleneck-Oriented Process Synchronization
  • Decreased Planning Efforts

With Asprova APS

  • Shorter delivery times
  • Radical reduction in total production lead times using bottleneck oriented planning
  • Drastic reduction in semi-finished inventory
  • Optimizing the order processing sequence for individual processes: drawing, extrusion, stranding, etc.
  • Increased Resource Efficiency thanks to Optimized, Sequential Scheduling
  • Improved Transparency in Factory and Order Status
  • Greater Flexibility in the Case of Order Changes, Rush Orders, Machine Failure, etc.
  • Substantially Reduced Planning Efforts
