Manufacturers rely on production scheduling tools to avoid delays and optimize production, decreasing costs and increasing efficiency. Conventional solutions can only take scheduling so far, with many opportunities for improvement across the industry.
To develop their production scheduling capabilities, manufacturers must overcome specific challenges. They will have to streamline workflows, manage the complexity of modern factory floors, and improve visibility for their operations.
Facing these challenges will require a transition to a real-time approach in terms of data collection and evaluation and schedule adjustment. Production teams will need to be able to determine the optimal use of available resources while accounting for all constraints. The use of an advanced Gantt solution provides manufacturers with a solution that can monitor, analyze, react to, and optimize production scheduling in real-time.
