Scheduling Workbench

Optimize your manufacturing operations with advanced scheduling

Infor M3 Scheduling Workbench (SWB) is a powerful decision support tool designed for production planning and the scheduling of manufacturing orders. It efficiently manages finite capacity constraints and material flow from raw materials to finished products. The M3 SWB is capable of handling both single or multi-facility/plant distribution and production planning, ensuring synchronized resource utilization and material flow throughout the internal supply chain.

Scheduling Workbench significantly enhances resource utilization and helps to reduce inventory, work in process, and lead times. SWB for equipment visually represents the critical path for work orders associated with major equipment overhauls, allowing early identification of bottlenecks and proactive management of production challenges.

Key Features:
  • Customizable Decision Support: Offers workflow menus that can be customized to assist planners in their daily operations, enhancing decision-making processes.
  • Integration with M3 Business Engine: Ensures that processes and decisions are tightly integrated with the M3 Business Engine for seamless operation.
  • Performance Scoreboard: Includes a performance scoreboard that displays delivery performance, shortages, and resource utilization, providing a comprehensive overview of production efficiency.
  • Handling of Critical Constraints: Utilizes Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints for effective management of critical constraints within the production line.
  • Dynamic Network Synchronization: Ensures dynamic interdependencies and synchronization between orders, materials, routings, and capacity, optimizing the entire production schedule.
  • Sequence Optimization: Features a rules-based sequence optimization engine to minimize nonproductive time and enhance overall production efficiency.
