Capable-to-promise and production scheduling (a provocative view)

Posted by Ute Gillet on Jun 22, 2022 5:33:35 PM

A few weeks ago, Martin hosted the webinar "Capable-to-promise and production scheduling (a provocative view)". In this blog, he shared some ideas on how make-to-order manufacturers can give realistic delivery dates to their customers. He suggested a somewhat surprising mix of tools to achieve this.
