Abstract

Accurate due date setting and lead time management are difficult tasks for Make to Order (MTO) manufacturing firms and require effective capacity management. To remain competitive accurate due date prediction and shorter lead times are key. Within a backdrop of a Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) the development of a Prototype Planning and Scheduling System (PPSS) and the subsequent implementation of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System are explained. Proposed work and trials to integrate the ERP system to the PPSS is detailed. Thus PPSS becomes a secondary level of control, with its inputs from the ERP system.
