At MSSP (Maskinfabrikken Silkeborg Spåntagning), the obtaining of an overview of production was a major challenge on a daily basis. No one really knew what was going on, and the why’s and how’s of the scheduling processes were virtually impossible to figure out. As a result, it was very difficult to factor in the consequences when orders were moved around in the production plan. Consequences generally only became clear when delivery times on other orders were exceeded, or when customers had been given incorrect or imprecise delivery times on their specific orders.
Fortunately, all of the above is now a thing of the past. Today, MSSP has implemented ROB-EX in their production scheduling and with this, production scheduling has become transparent and everyone has access to viewing the plan. Everyone is kept up to speed on developments in production – at all times.
