Manufacturing companies are under pressure to lower their operating cost, while maintaining the same or higher service levels towards customers.
Inefficiencies in the production process and the supply chain are easily covered up with extra buffer time and excess inventories.
FrePPLe improves plan visibility and communication, and allows you to operate lean and agile in today’s markets.
FrePPLe fits very well in this methodology with its pull-based planning algorithms, which create plans focussed on meeting the customer demand with minimal inventories. The forward visibility into bottlenecks and constraints allow you to anticipicate and take proactive action, rather than the usual ad-hoc firefighting.
Synchronizing the material flow and utilization of resources across multiple manufacturing plants, distribution centres, subcontractors and suppliers is not a simple task.
Aligning the plans gives companies a leading advantage and unlocks the value previously unused or wasted.
FrePPLe allows you to model and plan the supply chain end-to-end. The planners have end-to-end visibility and control on the supply chain. When a subcontractor reports a supply problem, you can replan within minutes to analyze the impact across the entire network.
