Corrugated Plant Scheduling & Production Control Solution
Our corrugated converting and corrugator scheduling solutions improve overall plant efficiency by seamlessly delivering shop-floor information directly to the scheduling engine, allowing the scheduler to develop an optimized and balanced production plan.
The corrugated industry is the pioneer of sustainable packaging solutions and at eProductivity Software, we have developed a broad range of automated plant scheduling solutions that help corrugated sheet and box plants manage all aspects of the converting process. Key features include:
- Automated real-time machine data collection
- Integrated order promising with CorrPlan® – never disappoint your customers again
- Highly configurable scheduling engine with automated machine load balancing
- ‘What if’ scenario planning that enables load balanced schedules planning
Corrplan has increased our up time significantly and all of our machines are better for having Corrplan on them because we produce way more per hour
I don’t see how you can operate using CorrTrim without CorrPlan. It would be very hard if we only had CorrTrim and we were scheduling production any other way. This is the perfect setup…it’s a must!
As eProductivity Software was giving the demo I watched how nice it was to be able to gather real-time data between our plant and the corrugators line up and how wonderful that would be to see exactly when material is available. The integration between scheduling and material availability has been a game changer – we have a much faster and accurate production planning process as a result.
Corrugator Scheduling with CorrPlan®
Our CorrPlan plant and corrugator scheduling solution give schedulers the capability to determine the most efficient and profitable manufacturing schedule. Using pre-set user-defined rules, backed by a powerful planning algorithm to fully optimize manufacturing throughput, CorrPlan delivers end-to-end efficiency improvements across all work centers in the plant.
Available as part of the Corrugated Packaging Suite, or as a standalone module that can integrate with alternate ERP systems. CorrPlan offers extensive functionality that enables you to improve planning, adapt to fluctuating customer demand, and collaborate internally across all your manufacturing operations – all at a low total cost of ownership.
CorrPlan determines the most efficient and profitable manufacturing schedule possible, based on user-selected rules, tailored to your unique business processes and needs.
Corrugated Sheet & Box Plants
Corrugated Sheet and Box Plants using CorrPlan can optimise work center utilisation by up to 10%, improving order turnaround times and customer satisfaction.
CorrPlan effectively removes the guesswork and reliance on individual employees and gives users full visibility of work center utilisation with intelligent rule-based processes for schedule optimisation helping reduce job turnaround times.
Users become empowered decision-makers and can review the schedule, evaluate “what if?” scenarios and proposed schedule changes, and assess the overall impact on plant production prior to making commitments. CorrPlan’s intelligent alternate routing eliminates production bottlenecks, reduces Work-In-Progress (WIP), and downtime, and maximises individual machine productivity.
Customer Service Reps (CSRs) can make use of CorrPlan’s Order Promising module to provide accurate delivery dates which can be communicated back to the customer. CSRs need only enter a product spec ID and quantity and CorrPlan will analyze the plant’s available capacity based on the current bookings and master schedule.
CorrPlan customers have reported improved turnaround times and increased win rates and customer trust with >98% On Time Delivery (OTD).
