Designed to facilitate the planning, scheduling, and execution of production activities within an organization.

The production scheduling module in Seradex provides tools and functionalities to manage the production process efficiently. Here’s an overview of how a typical production scheduling module works in Seradex:

  • Master data setup: The production scheduling module relies on accurate master data, such as bills of materials (BOMs), work centers, routings, and production resources. These data elements define the structure of products, the required materials, and the operations involved in the production process. The module allows users to set up and maintain this master data.

  • Order creation: Production orders or work orders are created within Seradex to initiate the production process. These orders contain details such as the product to be produced, quantity, due dates, and any specific requirements or constraints.

  • Capacity planning: The module helps in determining the available capacity of production resources, including machines, work centers, labor, and materials. It considers factors such as resource availability, capabilities, skill sets, and shift schedules to estimate the capacity available for production.

  • Scheduling algorithms: The module uses advanced algorithms to schedule production orders based on various parameters, such as due dates, material availability, resource capacity, dependencies, and priorities. These algorithms aim to optimize the sequencing of orders, minimize changeovers, reduce idle time, and improve overall efficiency.

  • Material availability: The production scheduling module integrates with other modules within the ERP system, such as inventory management and procurement, to ensure that the required materials are available when needed. It considers factors like lead times, safety stock levels, and supplier constraints to plan and schedule production activities.

  • Visual scheduling: Seradex provide visual scheduling tools, such as Gantt charts, Capacity charts, and calendar views, to represent the production schedule in a graphical format. These visualizations make it easier for users to understand and interpret the schedule, identify bottlenecks or conflicts, and make informed decisions.

  • Real-time updates: The production scheduling module receives real-time updates from various sources, such as shop floor data collection systems to monitor the progress of ongoing production activities. This data helps in tracking actual production times, identifying delays or issues, and adjusting the schedule accordingly.

  • Collaboration and communication: The module enable collaboration and communication between different departments involved in the production process, such as production, procurement, and quality control. It facilitates the exchange of information, sharing of updates or changes, and resolution of issues or conflicts that may impact the schedule.

  • Performance monitoring and reporting: The production scheduling module provides performance monitoring and reporting functionalities. Key performance indicators (KPIs) such as on-time delivery, schedule adherence, resource utilization, and production efficiency can be tracked and reported. These metrics help in evaluating the effectiveness of the scheduling process and identifying areas for improvement.

  • Integration with other modules: The production scheduling module seamlessly integrates with other modules within the Seradex system, such as sales, inventory management, and finance. This integration ensures data consistency, enables end-to-end visibility, and supports decision-making across different functional areas.
