At the Indonesia 4.0 2022 conference and exhibition held at Bidakara Hotel on August 24-25, 2022, Siemens showcased advanced planning and scheduling technology.
This technology enables the manufacturing industry to efficiently manage production planning, sequencing and scheduling systems according to product lines, formulas and production assets.
Aerospace and automotive, semiconductor and electronics, food and beverage, and consumer goods sectors are industries in Indonesia that are ready to embrace the concept of advanced planning and scheduling technology.
This technology uses precise calculations to analyze and calculate feasible production schedules, taking into account various constraints and production rules that allow the manufacturing industry to generate and evaluate several possible scenarios.
“The industry as a whole cannot react quickly and intelligently to change without planning and scheduling tools. The time it takes to create a schedule using a worksheet can take hours or even days, and it can be quite difficult to keep it up to date. However, there is a new trend towards predictive action using advanced planning and scheduling so that they can synchronize thousands of data sources and produce more accurate production schedules,” said I Putu Agus Sugita, Account Manager for the food industry and beverages, Digital Industries, PT. Siemens Indonesia…
Data from Indonesia’s Central Statistics Agency (BPS) shows growth in the non-oil and gas processing industry throughout 2021 at 3.67%.
In addition, the chemical, pharmaceutical and traditional medicine industries continued their positive trend with an increase of 9.61%.
Siemens believes that the concept of advanced planning and scheduling technology can help the manufacturing industry produce components more efficiently and at the same time increase the quality and quantity of production.
Thus, the concept of advanced planning and scheduling technology can help the Indonesian industrial sector regain its status as the main driver of the economy.
