Optimize your production planning
Faster deliveries, last-minute changes, and shifting deadlines. A lot is expected of you, which can be a challenge in your dynamic and complex production environment.
BSP APS, aka Blue Star Planning's Advanced Planning and Scheduling, is one of the newest industry 4.0 planning software's in the field. With more than 20 years of experience in software development, Blue Star Planning has developed one APS software solution that consists of seven key modules to create the ideal production schedule in these dynamic and complex manufacturing environments.
The planning of and response to customer requests in your production planning, in particular, is actually the primary process, whereas ERP only facilitates this as a secondary process. The APS software of Blue Star Planning makes your production planning the primary process. BSP APS will complete, integrate and incorporate all available knowledge with the already available technology in your factories, like ERP software and other Industry 4.0 systems.
BSP APS combines constraint-based planning with automatic optimization and sequencing for the dynamic and complex production environment. It optimizes the output of resources, aligns internal departments and inbound and outbound logistics, processes changes seamlessly and lets you plan for the future today.
Together, the seven BSP APS modules work to get higher output from your machines by optimizing production sequences on machines and across departments. Using the latest techniques developed for cloud computing, we can apply Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to your data, apply our algorithms to your planning and integrate with your existing software and solutions.
Our software is also suitable for SMEs. Take advantage of it and contact us today!
BSP APS optimizes the following planning objectives:
Minimizes losses of material-, financial-, workforce- and other recourses;
Effectively manages the risks associated with planning and more adequately respond to them;
Increases robustness and agility of the production planning;
Reduces planning time and improves the responsiveness of the planning system;
Makes planning decisions on the strategic, tactical, and operational level in a more effective manner, with an emphasis on the integration of planning and scheduling processes;
Improves the overall software integration of the internal supply chain;
Makes the order completion and other data processes more transparent for the whole factory, every department, and team.
Our BSP APS is suitable for:
Make-to-order production environments;
Environments where ERP planning methods do not properly take into account the complex consideration of different priorities and constraints;
Capital-intensive production environments, where optimal use of available capacity is of key importance;
Manufacturing environments with (highly) diverse products competing for limited materials and capacity;
Manufacturing environments using many different (production) components and/ or many production stages;
Manufacturing environments where frequent rescheduling is required using many different (production) components.
