Production Plan Optimization
Customers in the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) Packaging area want to improve their production plans in their factories as they face difficulties in meeting demand and lose sales by not producing the right mix of SKUs.
Presage, in collaboration with its partner Clarity, has developed a customized tool for each customer, specifically designed to meet their factory’s specifications. This tool allows for the generation of an optimized production plan, taking into account demands and inventories while respecting system constraints.
The project involves a process of understanding the factory’s operations, which enables a detailed analysis and knowledge transfer between the customer and the programming.
At the end of the project, a tool based on genetic algorithms is delivered, which generates an optimized plan for the specified time horizon (usually 4 or 8 weeks), while meeting the customer’s priority hierarchy.
- Reduced storage costs by avoiding overproduction of SKUs.
- Increased sales and improved customer service by meeting the demand for SKUs.
- Ability to function as a simulator, enabling better business decisions to be made.
