Products may have upstream and downstream processes in different locations. Without suitable scheduling software, it is impossible to utilize resources optimally. Asprova SCP considers bottleneck processes and limited resource capacities across all factories to schedule work instructions accordingly.
The entire supply chain is taken into account, including factories, suppliers, logistics centers and customers. Factory outputs, various transportation resources and routes, as well as product distribution to logistics centers and customers become mapped in Asprova SCP.
This leads to miminimized inventory stocks, optimal resource utilization and flawless delivery reliability thoughout the entire value chain. Combined with Asprova APS for the scheduling of individuel factories, it is possible to create optimal conditions to improve efficiency in all areas of the entire group.
Asprova SCP can be linked to various Asprova APS modules of individual factories.
Various order types and forecasts can be registered (such as for 24 months). Data may be entered directly into Asprova, or it can be imported from another data source, such as an ERP system.
Asprova SCP creates order- and delivery schedules as well as manufacturing plans (rough) for all order across all factories.
Items, production time, lot sizes, and many more factors are defined to let Asprova determine replenishment order quantities, daily material requirements (for stock orders), etc.
Forecast orders, customer orders, purchase orders, and warehouse orders are managed with regards to delivery dates, quantities, order priorities, and specifications.
Demand and inventory (supply minus demand) can be checked for all items and plants. It is possible to adjust for time periods of to day, month and year. Shortages are colofully-highlighted for immediate identification.
Items produced in various factories are displayed together with production capacities and performance levels.
Transportation routes are defined for every product, including means of transportation (such as by truck, train, air freight, sea freight) that run between factories, suppliers, logistics centers and customers. This includes:
Minimum stocks for every item may be registered per logistics center. Asprova SCP automatically creates replenishment order (for in-house production or out-sourced production) while taking forecast order, customer orders, and optimal reception timing of required quantities into account.
The entire value chain is represented in Asprova SCP in an overview with possibility of an adjusted view according to your desired level of detail. Graphs, diagrams and tables of various aspects can be combined freely for clear depiction of relationships between order, materials and resources.
The Resource-Gantt-Chart displays the entire work flow chonologically. Therein included are all facilities and information relevant to production, including machines, workers, transportation times, etc. The entire value chain, including transportation routes, transportation resources, currently utilized resources, lead times, and much more can be seen and checked with a glance.
View all orders for up to several months in advance. Check on orders quantity, delivery dates (including compliance and delay), processing time, waiting time, and much more. It is possible to monitor even the most complex order networks with ease!
The inventory graph visualizes changes to inventory stocks of all items of all factories on a time axis.
The Load Graph visualizes scheduled resouce capacities. This allows for swift identification of bottlenecks.
