Abels & Kemmner presents new service package for PP/DS optimization

Finest detailed planning

Herzogenrath/Aachen, 02.12.2019 – Management consultancy Abels & Kemmner is presenting its newly developed service package for PP/DS optimization (Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling) for the first time at Logimat 2020 (Hall 6/Stand D77). It covers the entire range of optimization of classic Group Technology and PP/DS systems through to the use of AI (artificial intelligence) for production and detailed planning. Customers are supported from initial gap analyses through to the introduction of new and optimization of existing PP/DS solutions. Ultimately, customers benefit from increased throughput, better capacity utilization and improved delivery reliability, while at the same time reducing costs.

“Since the availability of artificial intelligence for production and detailed planning, there has been a need to question existing PP/DS solutions, especially for companies that manufacture many products on many machines,” explains Professor Dr. Andreas Kemmner, Managing Director of management consultancy Abels & Kemmner. “We want to help these and other companies achieve better PP/DS results in terms of their capacity utilization, throughput and adherence to delivery dates.”

Another component of the PP/DS service package is the complete automation of PP/DS detailed planning. Its purpose is to provide optimum scheduling support for Industry 4.0 factories and cross-plant virtual factories – only higher-level scheduling 4.0 with seamlessly connected automatic production and detailed planning 4.0 can lead the increased efficiency potential of 4.0 factories to an overall optimum for the company. The measures to fully automate the PP/DS are supported by the introduction of the finest sets of rules in order to achieve even more precise and therefore more efficient results. Particular attention is paid to ensuring that they are supported by every production manager, hall supervisor, machine operator and worker so that gut instinct interventions are effectively prevented.
