Remember when your promise date was actually a promise, and now you just assume that customers are ok with late orders since they haven’t complained?
Automated Job Scheduling
Save time and let Fulcrum’s automated scheduling engine handle the complexity of job scheduling. Seeded with rules tailored to your business, Fulcrum will go to work testing thousands of potential solutions each second to route and schedule jobs, maximizing throughput and on-time delivery.
Visualization and Control
With a clean, intuitive scheduler, it’s easy to adjust the production queue as needed. Job cards are customized to provide key details on each job, while a visual representation of each work center’s load allows you to determine where it’s most efficient to slot a new job.
Intelligent Capacity Planning
Fulcrum analyzes thousands of pieces of data and routes your order to the workstations with available capacity. By intelligently grouping similar orders, Fulcrum reduces the amount of changeovers that are required. That means more production from the people and machines you already have.
Not getting work out the door on time?
Sales typically doesn’t have a true understanding of what’s happening in production. Fulcrum uses current/upcoming capacity to suggest accurate delivery dates, keeping customers happy.
Constantly shuffling your schedule?
Fulcrum’s scheduling allows you to adjust orders and manage capacity on the fly, performing fast what-if scenarios to see how downstream operations/jobs are impacted, and the costs associated.
Too much WIP around the shop?
Fulcrum allows for pre-defined rules to be programmed into the auto-scheduler to batch orders, minimize change-overs, etc. to reduce the amount of WIP in the shop, while increasing overall throughput.
Paying out too much overtime?
Overtime is typically a result of either inefficient scheduling, or unrealistic deadlines. Fulcrum’s ability to auto-schedule creates the most efficient schedule possible to increase on-time deliveries while reducing overtime.
