A natural extension of Core Fundamentals, this workshop introduces professionals to applications of company-wide planning methods. The tools discussed are used for viewing the “big picture” and assessing the impact of the current schedule on labor and material requirements over a longer period of time. 

Forecasting & Master Scheduling:  November 1st (8:00am - 4:30pm)

  • Forecasting and demand planning is a multi-step operational supply chain manangement process used to create reliable forecasts.  Effective demand planning can guide users to improve the accuracy of revenue, align inventory levels with peaks and troughs in demand, and enhance profitability for a given channel or product.  Focus will be on Sales and Operations Planning, and short and long term forecasting.

  • Master Production Scheduling is the process that helps manufacturers plan which products and related quantities to produce during certain periods.  MPS is proactive in that it actually drives the production process in terms of what is manufactured and what materials are procured.  MPS also serves a bridge to sales as it informs them about what is available to promise customers and when deliveries can be made.  Focus will beon planning stages, purpose of MPs, MPS formats, level scheduling, lean daily management, and MPS benefits.

 

Bills of Material & Capacity:  November 8th  (8:00am - 4:30pm)

  • Bills of Material is ideally suited for those supply chain professionals who support or interact with product engineering, manufacturing engineering as well as industrial engineering.  It introduces essential vocabulary and skills in identifying and applying the basic principles of bills of material and the impact that they have on planning and scheduling manufacturing operations.

  • Capacity Management is ideally suited for those supply chain professionals who support or interact with production control, manufacturing engineering as well as industrial engineering.  It introduces essential vocabulary and skills in identifying and applying the basic principles of capacity management, as well as the impact on front-line manufacturing operations.

Lean Manufacturing & Total Systems:  November 13th  (8:00am - 4:30pm)

  • Lean Supply Chain is ideally suited for those supply chain professionals who support or interact with any departments involved with the implementation of lean or, continuous supply chain improvement initiatives.  It introduces essential vocabulary and skills in identifying and applying the basic principles of a lean supply chain, as well as the impact on front-line manufacturing operations.

  • Total Systems discusses those aspects of the business that keep us on the straight and narrow.  The focus is less on the mechanics of running a business but on how to maintain and continually improve overall growth, profit and operational excellence.  The focus is more on how to focus your energies and limited resources on winning and staying a winner.  The class will discuss corporate metrics of all forms, that winning companies do to stay winners (Customer Focus).  The class will discuss what winning organizations do in today's Global markets to succeed.
