SIMATIC IT Preactoradvanced planningSIMATIC IT Preactor AP is a strategic decision support tool that combines forecastand long-term orders that target stocklevels and bucketed resource capacities toensure that future demand is met. It is anessential planning tool for companies thatwant to enhance competitiveness, increaseprofits and improve customer service.Effective purchasing of economic quantities of raw materials and timely use of thisraw material is key to reducing one of thegreatest production problems – unnecessarily high stock levels of both finishedproduct and raw material and the possibility of this stock reaching its sell-by datebefore being consumed.Planning can be executed in finite orinfinite capacity mode and planning timeperiods can be days, weeks, months or acombination of all three. Parameters canbe set against each item code, whichallows different calculations for each item.For example, some products may be inmake-to-stock mode while others are inmake-to-order mode.6If used together with a SIMATIC IT Preactorscheduling system, detailed productionschedule information can be sent back tothe planning system and this will overrideplanned volume with scheduled volume.The master production schedule (MPS) canthen be recalculated using the productionschedule as the base for new results.SIMATIC IT Preactor advanced planningbenefits Decision support for long-term strategy Production load balancing andsmoothing Rapid master production schedulegeneration Ability to respond quickly to changes indemand

What’s the difference betweenplanning and scheduling?The basic difference between planning software and schedulingsoftware is that planning systems are bucketed (monthly, weekly, daily)and cannot preserve operation sequences within the time bucket.True scheduling systems are bucketless, preserving sequencing, andcapable of generating work-to or dispatch lists. Assigning an operationto a resource is a key function for achieving operational efficiencyand optimizing performance. Detailed scheduling uses a shorter timehorizon and a much more detailed process route than a planningsystem.7


SIMATIC IT Preactoradvanced schedulingSIMATIC IT Preactor AS is a finite capacityscheduling tool based on a detailed modelof the plant. It takes into account theactual availability of resources and considers multiple constraints to produce anachievable schedule. It is a scheduling toolprimarily for manufacturers that need toschedule machines, production lines andresources, but is also used in services andlogistics.The purpose of scheduling in manufacturing is to minimize production time andcosts by telling a production facility whatto make, when to make it, and what staffand equipment to use. Production scheduling aims to maximize the efficiency of theoperation and reduce costs. Detailedscheduling software is an important toolfor many companies because it can have amajor impact on the productivity of aprocess.individual resources using scheduling rulesand interacting with the schedule usingthe Gantt charts and generated plots. Atypical output would be a dispatch list foreach resource.SIMATIC IT Preactor advanced schedulingbenefits Better resource utilization Reduction of setup and changeovers Reduction of inventory andwork-in-progress Detailed visibility of the production load Faster what-if scenario modeling Improved on-time deliveryTypically, the input is manufacturingorders that have a process route associated with each one, defining theoperational steps to make the product. Theuser then can load the orders onto9

Realizing innovationin the digital enterpriseWith the manufacturing operations management(MOM) software portfolio from Siemens PLMSoftwareSiemens now offers a holistic automationsolution covering all major Industry 4.0requirements, and Siemens PLM Softwaredelivers software to support the DigitalEnterprise.Manufacturers are better equipped toinitiate or respond to disruptive innovationtrends when their processes are fullydigitalized.Digitalization transforms the innovationprocess into a proactive agent in drivingnew business opportunities, enablingmanufacturers to weave a digital threadthrough three distinct phases:Ideation, the traditional area of productconcept and designRealization, including production planning, production engineering, factoryautomation and production executionsystemsUtilization, the service and support ofproducts in the field and the feedback loopfrom these products to the other domainsSiemens PLM Software solutions smoothlyconnect major parts of the product andproduction life cycle.
