As a shoe manufacturing company, you are aware of the challenging complexities and interdependencies involved in production processes. The demands go far beyond mere production planning and monitoring.
This is where individually applicable solutions are required to control and map out processes both in detail and in their entirety.
The wide range of features offered by cpa.ShoeFactory’s production planning and control module makes it easier for you as a manufacturer to plan every aspect of manufacturing. Target-oriented procedures and methods help effectively plan the complete range of your business processes, which position you a large step ahead of your competitors.
By using cpa.ShoeFactory, you can determine your production requirements at any time. To do this, forecasts and projections as well as customer and warehouse orders are used. All of this takes into account throughput, procurement and transportation times. In this way, your requirements can be scheduled for an optimal production start.
When using cpa.ShoeFactory, you compensate for seasonal production fluctuations through precise capacity and bottleneck planning. You can select to plan in terms of numbers of pairs or working minutes needed per operation. The latter is advantageous when varying degrees of complexity are involved, such as with sandals or winter boots.
With cpa.ShoeFactory's production planning and production control module, you can monitor material availability during the planning process. This gives you a comprehensive material planning perspective and avoids production disruptions resulting from a lack of material or tools.
Regardless whether for production, based on customer demands or for stock purposes, when using cpa.ShoeFactory an assortment is created in the background using historical data. Existing customer requirements are extrapolated, or a size breakdown of similar articles from previous productions is created – making use, for example, of the same shape, established assortments or reference articles. Your production scheduler only has to enter the total quantity desired for production.
Use the freely configurable production processes, regardless of the location or number of your production sites anywhere in the world. The module's central data management gives you real-time information on throughput stock and production delivery. Production documentation and box end labels are also available on demand at any time for any location. In this way you benefit from an overview of all semi-finished products in process and in transit.
This cpa.ShoeFactory module provides you with all essential functions and information for production data acquisition. This simplifies your operations when using barcode support and automates your processes – for example with mobile material issue posting. Or you can activate repair orders or perform many other activities.
Thanks to cpa.ShoeFactory, you always know when the finished shoe will be available in the distribution warehouse. What is more, permanently updated data and day-calculated forecasting enable the sales department to schedule binding sales from the production stock and better plan their sales.
Using cpa.ShoeFactory's detailed planning, you can fine-tune production, for example, by assigning priorities if shoe uppers from different plants accumulate in one assembly plant – or the delivered quantity exceeds production capacities. Similarly production can be precisely controlled on a daily basis according to customer requirement and delivery date. Alternatively you can use cpa.ShoeFactory's automated detailed plan proposal.
In very busy seasonal phases, production orders may need to be rescheduled spontaneously from one production facility to another. This is easily feasible with cpa.ShoeFactory, even when the production process has already started, with automated adjustment of all necessary information for transport and material planning.
cpa.ShoeFactory assists you in controlling complex production processes with specific planning precision, for example direct soling. Thanks to the machine planning function, you can increase and optimise machine use, reduce planning input and keep a watchful eye on the production process.
