At Smiths Machine, we understand that meeting delivery deadlines is critical to our customers’ operations. The Smiths Machine Planning Team plays a crucial role in keeping all other departments on target.
We utilize multiple techniques to plan capacity and to ensure customer objectives are met. These safeguards allow us to have a long term overview of the production schedule, which is vital when committing to customer delivery dates.
Complex plans are also created for a weekly execution of the production schedule to guarantee we meet those dates.
In additional to the tools our Planning Team uses, we also utilize our Enterprise Resource Planning system, Epicor, throughout the entire company. This system allows us to maintain tight controls of schedules and work flow. It also enables our entire Team to have current information on the status of projects.
