Increase Throughput And Unlock Capacity With Optessa MLS
Optessa MLS increase throughput schedules. For example, an annualized benefit of $2 million was evaluated by an engine manufacturer based on an over 9% throughput improvement provided by the Optessa MLS schedule as compared to the previous scheduling process.
The patented Optessa scheduling algorithm achieves these amazing results by
- Controlling the model mix in the sequence
- Better aligning cycle times across the different stations in the line
- Minimizing inefficiencies due to shifting bottlenecks and starvation
- Simultaneously applying both process/routing data and plant constraints in a single optimization model
The chart below shows the Optessa MLS production schedule that increased the capacity utilization of each station on the line and overall throughput by over 9%, as compared to the previous scheduling system.
