Lighthouse Factory Scheduler is an interactive multi-constraint scheduling software. It supports
you in building more accurate and cost-efficient schedules and gives you the decision support you need while keeping you in charge of every decision. It takes availability of resources, additional constraints, such as tooling, and materials in to consideration to ensure an accurate model of your environment. It is scalable, flexible, and applicable in both discrete and continuous production environments. Lighthouse can be used to align your schedules with your KPIs, minimize risks, increase resource efficiency and defend against disruptions.

Lighthouse Factory Scheduler enables you to perfect your schedule with these capabilities:

Visibility
Gain visibility over multiple production steps, to reduce WIP, maximize throughput and delivery performance

Quick Rescheduling
Manage disruptions by quick rescheduling using built in rules

Instant feedback
Assess the quality of your schedule with revised KPI values and get alerted to any missed constraints or any other consequences caused by your changes

Factory Scheduling

Lighthouse Advanced Scheduler can perform resource or order-based scheduling to which the user can apply ranking in order to prioritize the orders. It can take in to account different operation rates on different resources, use sequence dependent changeover times based on operation attributes and allows overlaps and wait time between operations. Complex custom rules can also be enabled through Lighthouse’s workflow mechanism.

Key Features

  • Multi-constraint scheduling
  • Scheduling strategies like minimize WIP or maximize resource utilization
  • Considers factory times and resource available times
  • Sequence orders with same attributes to reduce setup time
  • Graphical display of schedules orders using Gantt Chart
  • Manually move scheduled orders by drag and drop
  • Model constraints such as setup time, wait time, queue time and transfer batch quantity
  • Ability to see the links between upstream and downstream operations graphically
  • Ability to lock a schedule

Key Benefits

  • Optimal usage of resources by reducing production downtimes
  • Increase throughput by decreasing production lead times
  • Reduced WIP Inventory
  • Faster and more reliable scheduling
  • Reduced customer response times
