direct MES

Resource Capacity

  • Full utilisation of resources
  • Precise scheduling
  • Reduce overload on your resources
  • Plan according to available time
  • Define different capacities for machines and workstations
  • Manage breaks, holidays and other special dates 

Resource capacity in direct MES is the heart of efficient production planning. Each resource is essential, from machines to workstations and dedicated operators. This system allows you to define and manage production time with tailored plans for each day and week.

This system gives you the ability to define and manage production time, with tailored plans for each day and week.

direct MES gives you complete control over resource capacity in the production environment. Define your production resources: machines, equipment, production lines, or workstations.

With accurate capacity planning with day and week schedules that describe the time production is available. The system considers breaks, holidays, and special dates, ensuring a comprehensive overview of available resource capacity.

Production planning allocates operations to each resource based on capacity needs against available time to utilise resources as efficiently as possible. The result is minimal downtime, optimal resource utilisation, and a productivity increase that gives you a competitive edge.

Remove resource capacity during maintenance and service interruptions

direct MES allows you to define your machines and equipment as resources to be planned against. Utilising the capacity of such resources is crucial, and our production plan and competency matrices will ensure optimised loading.

When machines and equipment need maintenance and have service interruptions, capacity can be reduced and removed for relevant times.

direct MES – Resource Capacity / Week Plans

Production Lines and Workstations:

  • Each workstation in your production lines is an important resource
  • Manage capacity and load on each workstation 
  • Create different capacity plans for different resources

Allocating operations to your workstations requires good production plans for when resources are available. This is done through a separate function for managing week and day plans.

Resources load capacity according to planned operations, and direct MES ensures that your workstations and production lines are not overloaded but used as efficiently as possible.

Day and Week Plans:

  • The production plan is made up of day and week plans
  • Day plans indicate times for availability
  • Planned breaks are included, such as lunch and fixed LEAN meetings
  • Holidays and special dates ensure the automatic reduction of capacity 

Your factory often has different working hours than your employees. Whether you have 24/7 production, day production, or other shift arrangements, direct MES supports have various capacities for individual resource groups.

When capacity is made available, the system considers breaks, holidays, and alternative day plans on various special dates. The planning module will use the individual resources' day and week plans to allocate operations in the most optimal way, increasing efficiency and utilising capacity.
