This application requires two primary tools: a Plant Model or LP Model for planning, and a scheduling tool. The P&S supports managers in the following activities:

Interpreting sales plans and translate them into periodic production plans

Interfacing with third parties (for example, the DCS) to schedule intermediate product requirements

Calculating the optimal use of production capacity

Supporting day-to-day, plant-wide production planning

Ensuring product availability

Preparing schedules for raw material demand

Calculating the impact of plant status (for example, planned shutdowns)
