It is vital to be able to plan the correct number of workers for a given day / shift. The Fresh Dynamics Manpower Planning module provides visibility of the number of workers required over time to satisfy the production plan. This is underpinned by the introduction capability of defining a default number of setup and production workers for each item by line.
The planner can then add workers to production orders and Fresh Dynamics will correspondingly reduce the set up and / or run time for the job and increase the cost; or remove workers and the time will increase and cost reduce.
In conjunction with fixed constraints such as machine throughput, Fresh Dynamics allows planners to simultaneously consider the lowest number of workers against the optimal plan to meet the production deadlines.
