Production planning for lumber mills
Combine Timber Commerce modules from production planning and control to create an individual model for success.
The crates and woodpiles let you see which quantities and qualities of round timber are available or already reserved at any given time. In conjunction with the cutting plan module, you can accurately predict how the inventories will change. All production orders are recorded in detail, and all further processing steps can be stored in the system, along with the cost and plant capacity. This makes it possible to create a detailed schedule, accurate down to the hour, which can then be displayed as a Gantt chart in the mill capacity/process planning module. Potential bottlenecks can be identified in advance and dealt with systematically. The data transparency allows for reliable preliminary and final job costing. In conjunction with the product tree module, this comprises another building block and an important tool when it comes to making business decisions.
