Visual Manufacturing Material Planning Consulting

Getting products into your customer’s hands in a timely fashion requires more than just a dexterous coordination of activity inside your company’s walls. You must also be able to dance with your vendors.

“Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.”
Peter F. Drucker

This requires effective use of the Material Planning tools within Visual Enterprise. Visual has a number of tools that can be used to effectively plan for even the long-lead-time materials that are required to support your production.

As with scheduling Material Planning is partly an exercise in understanding and rationalizing the practices of your business and partly about learning to use the tools that Visual provides effectively and with purpose.

I can help you with that. As part of helping you become more effective at managing material planning, I will:

  • Help you choose the correct Visual material planning tools to meet your needs
  • I will help you streamline and hone the accuracy of the way that you handle materials to ensure that Visual’s tools are used effectively
  • To break out of purchase to job mode for handling common materials and components
  • React effectively to shortages
  • Master the Standard View Material Planning Window to handle typical purchasing scenarios
  • Understand how the Concurrent Scheduling System impacts and is impacted by material availability
  • Where appropriate, take advantage of Advanced Material Planning to handle more complex material planning scenarios.

I am Kurt B. Carr and I have years of experience in teaching companies how to use Visual Enterprise as a tool to operate effectively and achieve success. Call (941.776.3830) or email me today to learn how I can bring material advantages to your business.
