Production advanced scheduling system

SEMS® has a production scheduler by work center that the Production Planner can manually adjust daily, the production orders, to meet their needs/demands of orders at each work center.

  • Scheduler for production work center sequencing, loading schedules, set up, provisioning-processing at each work center reviewing thru-put capacities, purchasing-sales order, quote demands against a promise date for processing/delivery, CTP/ATP, Capability and Availability To Promise shipments on a specific date.
  • Monitor and compare all aspects of the business operation to find “best practices”
  • Gain flexibility and increase work center production throughput by scheduling work to work centers across multiple departments and locations
  • Automatic linking and data transfer of work in progress from a completed work step specified as input to the next step
  • No paper handling required. All details available by scanning bar codes or on RF handheld devices. Work is distributed through the plant with no paper work required.
  • Freely integrate Outside Processing operations with the same control and reporting as internal processing operations, providing greater production capacity flexibility
  • Monitor actual profit margin through production processes based on real waste and production loss and specific input materials used for each order line item
  • Ensure that the right inventory is used in the production process
  • Reduce claims by using a fully specified process with customer-specific tolerances with order line details based on one-time data entry to reduce entry errors.
  • Advanced EDI integration for inter-plant or inter-company data transfer to reduce or eliminate paperwork
  • Completely integrated production calendar for shift planning and up-time allocation.
  • Added versatility and profitability from using the Fabrication capability to add additional value and provide more service to your customer
  • Increased income from scrap sales which are managed and invoiced in an integrated process.
  • Supports a wide range of standard steel processes including slitting, cut to length, shearing, galvanizing, pickling, straightening, burning and pipe and tube manufacturing.
  • Handles shape transformation
  • Manages bundle break operations. Bundle break elements can be allocated to production orders in virtual form prior to physical bundle break, once the bundle break occurs; the actual new tag is substituted automatically.
  • Input materials can be customer-owned for toll processing
  • Provides a detailed sequence of steel making and finishing processes customized specifically for the order line requirement
  • Designed for the rigors and realities of shop floor operations under harsh conditions
  • Most input is scanned and start and stop timing is then automatic, for accurate real cost allocations
  • Work orders are automatically generated from Sales Order Work Instructions.
  • Work orders are grouped to production orders automatically, with similar work from other Sales Orders
  • Work order provisioning is highly automated to minimize potential errors, it is also carefully validated to ensure compatibility with predecessor steps
  • Transfer steps between production work centers in different locations are generated automatically
  • Multi-time zone facilities can be managed with one integrated system with location-sensitive time and date display
  • Packaging processes managed as a separate production process with extra flexibilities
  • Tags can be partially allocated to a number of different orders
  • Physical tag allocation automatically substitutes for general allocation by ICI or “dummy” tag
  • Production orders are automatically assigned to the default work center and can be quickly re-allocated to another similar work center during the scheduling process to balance loading
  • Shift calendar is driven from a master calendar with amendment available at each level – Company, Department/Division, Warehouse, Work center
  • Add production steps to a work order even after it has been sent to production. (Cancel production, amend, re-provision).
  • Add new work centers or add extra shifts to a work center to create greater capacity in bottle-neck areas
  • One shift calendar with local variations and time shift by time zone
