About Blue Star Planning

Our Vision.

A Dream.

We believe that with our specialism in creating Advanced Planning and Scheduling software, we can create the ideal production planning (sequence) to maximize the output of your machines by reducing waste in time and materials. In this way, planning becomes the primary process, which we try to make the norm for all industries around the world to reduce waste in general.

Who we are.

Every story has a beginning.

Our story begins between sophisticated production machines at the heart of a family business. From the culture of always improving, striving for quality and higher productivity, we experienced success and overcame struggles in highly competitive markets.   

Through our love of technology, we developed low code software ERP platforms, successfully implementing software solutions for logistics and manufacturing, servicing numerous clients in service consultancies, steel trade and manufacturing industries, all of which we still do to this day.

This strong basis in manufacturing has set up our talented team, who together put over half a century of experience in our next best software platform for advanced planning and scheduling for production companies.

Our Mission.

Which we work on daily

Our mission is to become the most widely used Advanced Planning and Scheduling software platform by manufacturing companies by creating the ideal production planning (sequence) so that they achieve operational excellence.

What we do.

Software platforms for production.

Blue Star Planning creates the ideal production planning (sequence) that leads to operational excellence and automatically optimizes your OEEs.

 

We do this with our Advanced Planning and Scheduling cloud software platform by, among other things, creating interactive plan proposals using algorithms. These take into account the priorities and variables on which you depend; material, delivery times, changeover times
utilization, and much more. Based on the known production data from your ERP and other systems (or, where necessary, information added by us such as changeover times and further production details) the algorithm generates the ideal planning, based on the constraints; your wishes, and priorities.

 

The software provides various planning proposals that can be accepted and/or modified. After acceptance, the planning will be communicated by the factory via ERP system or by our facilitated interactive planboard screens. The planning created by the algorithm is registered and analyzed in real-time during production.


While following the planning, the algorithm, like a tomtom, is always looking for a more efficient route and proactively shows 'plan problems' that can be anticipated. These unexpected situations are picked up by the algorithm. The algorithm will recalculate and generate a new plan proposal. All this to increase productivity.

 

As a platform, we facilitate several aspects that are relevant to optimizing the planning, both beforehand and afterward. This includes features such as what-if scenarios, telemetry, forecasting, machine learning, dashboarding, reporting, and much more.

We'd love to be in contact with you, if it's business wise, or just for a little chat.
