Our key customer has sent a significant request for quotation. The quotation must be answered within 24 hours or else the customer will not take the offer into account. The amount of products offered is very large.
How can we create an offer which is both competitive and cost calculations are as accurate as possible ?
Forecasting the Demand & Usabililty of the Forecasts and capacity Management
The factory manager promises the sales manager a three week time limit for finishing a product under regular work load. From the sales person’s point of view the situation is always regular when the sales are closed. Just today would be a huge advantage if we could deliver the product within two weeks instead of three. From the production point of view the capacity varies significantly during different stages of production. The bottle neck to day is in the schedule to morrow and vice versa… meaning that the bottle neck may vary greatly.
Critical path estimation. How can we deliver information with adequate enough accuracy to estimate delivery times accurately to full fill all the requirements of the most reliable case manufacturer in Finland.
Factory logistics & production visibility
The production manager brings forth a major issue in a management meeting. At this moment we spend 30 hours per week for just searching for products within the factory. This is the single biggest cause of profit loss. Hundreds of products are being transferred daily from work stage to another and sent to customers.
What solution would remove this problem (locating products in the factory)?
