Manufactured structured scheduling system

MMA, in collaboration with our collective team members, focuses on a Manufactured Structured Scheduling System. Our Mission is:

  • To transform our project sites into a factory floor.
  • To develop a structured schedule for every vendor.
  • To ensure that all vendors complete their required work within our designated time frames.
  • To instill a "consistent pattern of behavior" mindset in our installers.

Production schedules are more important than ever before, especially considering the increased sophistication in manufacturing methods and the software necessary to manage production in a more precise manner, while also accounting for the increased complexity of global supply chains. Utilizing our well-defined production schedule that is based on accurate data inputs, our production schedules can be changed and adjusted to address temporary shifts in production requirements caused by seasonality, rapidly evolving consumer preferences and other disruptions.

The basic components of Production Scheduling include Planning, ‍Routing, Scheduling, ‍Dispatching, and ‍Execution.‍

Planning

In production scheduling, the role of planning is to utilize the company’s resources to maintain consistency, reduce downtime and mitigate bottlenecks to optimize production.

Routing

In discreet manufacturing, final products are made from a lengthy and complex series of sub-processes. A bill of materials may be used to dictate what items are required and in what quantity.
Routing maps out the flow of required process steps and dictates the path and sequence of performed operations. Including steps that must be done in-house and those components that may need to be sub-contracted and then returned to the production flow for final assembly.

Scheduling

Utilizes the established planning level to produce goods from components. or raw materials It is time-based and must satisfy the demand established at the planning level. These timetables can be department-specific, product specific and process-specific. Master production schedules are used at the highest level, defining the product timeframes. While sub-schedules may be department specific for sub-assemblies or for mixes and blends.

Dispatching

Is the process of assigning the sequence of jobs to be completed  from a sub-set of jobs in the production queue. Dispatching is used to make decisions for immediate action, in comparison to planning where decisions are determined for future actions. Dispatching is used in both pull and push production systems. In a push system, production dictates how much of the product will be “pushed” to the market, while in a pull system current demand “pulls” the goods thereby determining when and how much to produce.

Execution

Production scheduling must rely on proper execution to ensure that all processes are performed correctly and in the order they are intended to be produced and installed in the field. This requires that everyone knows what they are supposed to do and when they are supposed to do it. Execution involves informed management decisions, trained staff, accurate data as inputs into the production plan, a manufactured structured schedule, reliable sales figures and forecast numbers. All must be present for the organization to execute its production schedule and complete orders.

Furniture vs Construction

Our premanufactured, demountable walls offer substantial advantages over traditional construction because they are considered furniture. This classification allows for less rigorous permitting requirements and accelerated depreciation, resulting in immediate savings in both time and dollars.
