WHY IT MANAGERS CHOOSE LSI AND PREACTOR AS THE BEST PRODUCTION SCHEDULING SOFTWARE.
“I feel very passionate about what LSI has done to make Fort Walton Machining more successful as a company”
- Joe Spradlin IT Manager, Fort Walton Machining
“The LSI team took the time to understand my scheduling needs, to understand the rules we wanted implemented in our scheduling. They worked tirelessly to create a scheduling solution that both reflected these rules and improved our productivity and on-time delivery to the customer. Together with LSI we were able to successfully implement Preactor as well as a shop floor Manufacturing Execution System to improve our performance to the plan.”
- Paul Mittendorff, Manager Production Controlling. Hoerbiger
FINDING THE RIGHT APS SOLUTION:
Manufacturers who have implemented fast, smart APS solutions have a significant competitive advantage because they are able to systematically react quicker to changes in customer demand while simultaneously eliminating costly manual work and confusion. Manufacturers who don’t adapt will be left behind and unable to compete on an even footing.
WHY IS SELECTING THE RIGHT APS SCHEDULING SOFTWARE SO DIFFICULT
The number one reason that APS scheduling systems fail is because companies select the wrong software. No matter how hard you try, it is simply not possible to understand all the functionality you will need until you are well into your APS implementation process.
SOFTWARE DEMONSTRATIONS CAN BE MISLEADING.
Traditional software selection techniques are inadequate because they typically rely too much on the quality of the software demonstration which is flawed if you don’t first understand your requirements.
