Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on advanced planning and scheduling on the manufacturer’s assembly facilities.
With APS to be used is also Lead Time Management, which is the time between the start of a process and its completion. In planning parlance, the lead-time is usually an estimated time. As the plant’s finished product consists of Printer and Toner, though different categories of products, one item is the consumable product of the other. For the printer, the toner is the consumable item and as such a printer will be of no use until it is loaded with the Toner. Hence the model of Collaborative Planning, Forecasting, and Replenishment — CPFR will be useful which provides customer level visibility across the supply chain in order to attain the inventory reductions, revenue lift and cost reductions which remain the final objectives of collaborative initiatives. The solution meets limited materials and production planning against controlled and uncontrolled demand plans to meet the normal goals of profitability, productivity, competitive customer lead times, and backlog levels. CPFR has the promise to deliver increased sales, organizational streamlining and alignment, administrative and operational efficiency, higher cash flow, and improved return-on-asset — ROA performance. .
