Setting up an effective planning system
In this workshop, Véronique Dossogne and Pascal Pollet examine the planning problems that many high mix/low volume companies are confronted with, as well as the frequent limitations of the related tools. They will explain clearly that simplifying planning is an essential step to improving its effectiveness. Various tactics will be used for this and put into practice using simulation games. The workshop explores the relationship between product, production, and control structure, while also covering different planning systems and their guiding principles.
What we deliver
- Theory illustrated by several industry case studies
- Exercises and simulation games that demonstrate the power and effectiveness of the various principles
- Time for discussion
- A list of useful articles and publications
- Why is planning so difficult? What are the limitations of the planning tools?
- How can this be remedied?
- Step 1: reinforcing the resilience of the production system
- Step 2: reducing the complexity of the planning system
- Step 3: improving the responsiveness and efficiency of the workshop.
- You will better understand the origin of the planning problems in a high variety/low volume environment
- You will become familiar with the means of reducing planning problems in a high variety/low volume environment
- You will leave with a checklist of steps and principles to guide you in the preparation of your own planning system.
The workshop will be given in French and English according to the intervenor.
