Scheduling is more detailed and shorter term, working in minutes, hours, and days of an actual production run. Scheduling allows for the planning of how what and when each item of a specific production run will be done, based on the actual resources and machinery available in the factory at that specific time. For instance, it can be generated daily for individual machines, teams or people considering any constraints, such as resources that have limits like tools, people, skills or processes.
Scheduling works within the parameters of set by planning.
Scheduling Works minutes, hours and days ahead and helps you with:
- HOW BEST to make (Execution against plan)
- PRIORITIES, constraints and conflicts
- MONITORING Execution
- MANAGING change
