Cost-optimized production planning with LM aps+
Support the planning process at all levels
The requirements for efficient production planning are becoming more demanding. The most modern software tools in production are APS systems. Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) is designed help you plan the entire supply chain from raw material suppliers to end users as realistic as possible. By combining capacity planning and demand forecasting, the LMaps+ expansion module makes LogoMate a complete solution that can be universally used for all types of production.
The fully integrated LM aps+ module extends LogoMate into a full-fledged APS solution that supports the planning process at all levels. LM aps+ is a consistent solution that meets the customer’s requirements and covers all stages of production.
By way of illustration, the results of fully integrated production planning are visualized in a graphical planning system (Gantt chart), which can be easily operated by drag and drop. In this way, full capacities and timely completion are guaranteed at all times.
Fully integrated production planning at the highest level
Today, manufacturing companies are under high cost and time pressure. At the same time, they must be characterised by high reliability and maximum flexibility. The LM aps+ expansion module combines these requirements within an application. Using sophisticated algorithms, LogoMate as an APS system centrally merges all planning data and helps to stay one step ahead of the competition in highly competitive markets.
LM aps+ is a complex simulation tool that combines draft and detailed planning for optimizing procurement, production and scheduling. It can be used universally for all production types and enables continuous planning from customer order to raw material order to delivery of the finished product. Even situations where raw materials have to be ordered long before customer orders become known are optimally controlled by combining capacity planning and demand forecasting.
Efficiency across all stages of production
Thanks to reduced through-flow and set-up times, LM aps+ results in a reduction in production times and production costs. Personnel planning benefits from optimizing employee deployment and peak loads can be targeted for less busy periods. Production downtimes and overstocks are effectively avoided by intelligent planning with LM aps+as well as delays and out-of-stock situations. Automatic or manual capacity smoothing is possible for up to 24 months across all stages of production.
