Short Term Planning covers Production Scheduling and Logistics Dispatch Scheduling. It takes a medium term plan (monthly/fortnightly) and breaks it down further into day wise schedules, taking into account the daily availability of resources. The factors talen into consideration during planning include daily Sales Order/Pending Orders, Finished Goods Inventory, Warehouse/Depot Capacity availability and Truck/Rail Capacity availability in the Supply Chain. For a supply chain network, Short Term Planning helps identify bottleneck resources, determine delivery commitments to warehouses and customers, determine average inventory levels that can be maintained at different nodes of the network as well as the optimal frequency of replenishment and mode of transportation.
Our solution includes a Short term planning module that handles both production and logistics scheduling.
