COSMO Task-Based Scheduling is an ideal add-on product to the manufacturing module from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and the industry solutions from COSMO CONSULT in particular for all manufacturing companies in discrete manufacturing faced with a high number of variants, fluctuating order quantities and ever shorter delivery times. Task-based scheduling allows you to see delivery deadlines, lead times and stock levels at a glance and identify deviations quickly.
For the first time, the innovative approach of Task-based scheduling means you can tap the advantages of flow orientation for production with high component diversity and complex material flows. Order planning and scheduling are carried out roughly based on defined time frames. Through scheduled synchronisation and capacity levelling during planning, the workplace groups are given a feasible order volume for each time frame.
After rough planning at the level of individual capacity slots, each production area assigns operations and activities to specific work centers and schedules a processing sequence. This is graphically supported by the Gantt chart for detailed planning. The result of planning is a task-based worklist in the team board.
All planning results are available graphically and in tabular form in real time for the executing areas.
The actual order controlling is carried out within the time frame by the employees at operational level. This room for manoeuvre in production makes it possible to react efficiently and quickly to incidents. The strengths of this lean planning include organisational flexibility, demand-based resource deployment, short communication, and decision-making channels as well as high acceptance of the planning results by the employees.
