Planning

Driving continous improvement

Any company that employs kaizen management methods is aware that modern labour planning and scheduling technology is an area where vast improvements can be made.
 
Designed to understand your production process
DLM can help you to intelligently plan your labour resource requirements based on demand. The system holds your product constituent information and labour requirement in a configurable database. This data determines the number of items that can be created by the available workforce. This then allows the system to calculate build volumes, build times and labour requirements. The orders file is passed to the Production Plan module with the daily SKU Prep Sheets to map out the production schedule for forthcoming shifts. The Production Plan determines which products are on which production line and at what time.
 
Intelligent shift and scheduling planning software
DLM holds information on all staff and the areas in which they are trained to work - including their primary default work area. The holiday planner shows the availability of staff and highlights any areas that might need additional resources. There is a fully configurable list of staff availability status, using criteria such as absent, compassionate leave, holiday (deducted from contracted allowance); maternity/paternity leave, sickness and training. And additional status can be added to meet your specific requirements – all of which can have notes assigned to them to record further details.
 
Joined-up thinking for lean production planning
DLM can greatly improve the accuracy and reduce the time taken on shift planning – it also reduces the reliance on specific personnel. With full availability-planning capabilities, DLM can support one or many shift patterns, creating a production plan for each line of each shift. Once the plan has been set, re-organising is simple. You can drag the planned production event to a different place on the same line or onto another line.
A joined up system means that all managers can see all planned production and have the ability to change their own area.
