New enhancements were developed in order to respond to opportunities identified in the process of implementing Production Scheduler (PS) at Corus, and will further improve scheduling capabilities. Some of the new functions include:
• ‘Feeder groups’, which enables the use of non-first choice material to fill gaps in the schedule;
•‘Minimum batching’, which allows the specification of a rule which will try to complete a minimum batch of material limited by user-defined characteristics once started, and highlight a sharing violation if that’s not possible;
• ‘Violation limits’, which enables the definition of violations;
• Improved scheduling information around specific areas of production.

From the time when Corus started using the new improved Production Scheduler, significant improvements in the scheduling process have been recorded. For instance, the ‘feeder group’ function helped prevent an average of 50% of schedule violations.

The Phase 2 of the PS enhancement project will go live shortly and will add extra capabilities to Production Scheduler:
• Improved scheduling information, particularly around coils scheduling;
• ‘Conserve and Consume’ functionality, which allows users to define a scheduling strategy for using material which is in short supply and needed for more than one position in the schedule.

Shirley Solomon, Project Executive at Corus Strip Products, stated that the Phase 1 functionality together with support of the Project team, namely Gareth Philips, Project Manager and Andrew Leonard, Planning Manager, is helping the plant to generate more automated and accurate schedules, with a reduced amount of editing, which removes the potential for errors and inconsistencies.
