Protected Flow Manufacturing™ (PFM) is a cloud-based tool from LillyWorks that utilizes the Dynamic Production Method (DPM)™ as its approach to production execution, planning and materials that is a much simpler and easier methodology to understand than MRP and finite schedulers.
PFM's Execution toolset addresses the real-life challenges manufacturers face and reflects the realities of actual operations, whether you are operating in the mode of make-to-stock, make-to-order or somewhere in between. PFM is “better” because it respects the reality that job priorities change over time, including the ripple effect to upstream and downstream operations.
PFM's Planning toolset reflects what is likely to occur in the future when workers perform according to the priorities that it calculates for them, while also acknowledging limited capacity resources.
And PFM enhances the material plan with a production schedule that can be trusted and executed simply by following the rules.
If you are a discrete manufacturer struggling with gaining agreement shop-wide on what to work on next and you are interested in improving your company's delivery performance, let them show you why Protected Flow Manufacturing is the right choice to start getting real results, fast.
