Production Planning and Scheduling

  • AES has flexible manufacturing cells that may be configured to suit a particular spike in product innovation demand.
  • This has proven very effective in the face of demand spikes such as that of the home delivery retail sector in 2011 and more recently in energy management and commercial infrastructure projects.

 

For production planning and scheduling, the flexible approach adopted by AES means that in some cases AES provides the product design and production data for third party manufacture, but in the majority of cases, AES will provide the manufacturing and logistical support, often for the entirety of the product life cycle.

Where possible, AES will receive scheduling information for the manufacture of the products, which is how AES operates for automotive sector and aerospace clients, and is also being applied to the medical and Original Equipment Manufacture (OEM) sectors as the benefits have been significant.

Clients' forecast data is fed in to the production and logistics team where we manage the complete product design and development process enabling AES to make firm commitments to key suppliers and to manage issues such as supplier shutdowns, anticipated bad weather and materials shortages.

With respect to the aerospace sector, the aerospace product innovation demands are typically more defined in terms of the monthly requirements for up to a year ahead. Inventory management, supplier agreements and consolidated batch production techniques are used to keep ahead of the aerospace product development demand. This may involve the automated, surface mount assembly of several months’ forecast demand. This enables longer aerospace product design production runs to be achieved for a single set up cost. It reduces the delivery time to the client and allows AES to react to spikes in aerospace product innovation demand.
