Preactor International is a world leader in production planning and scheduling software used by a wide range of businesses. Frequently integrated with ERP, MES and Supply Chain Management solutions, Preactor’s breakthrough technology is used by more than 3500 small, medium and large multinational companies located in 69 countries.

The current trends in manufacturing are towards lowering inventory levels to reduce costs yet still be able to respond to shorter lead times to satisfy customer demand. This conflict in objectives forces companies to find ways to optimize production operations, reduce or eliminate non value added activities such as setup and waiting time, and highlight potential problems in advance so that action can be taken to balance demand and capacity. Recent independent studies have shown that ‘Best in Class’ manufacturing companies looking to reduce costs are using lean scheduling software often linked to ERP and real time data collection systems to meet their objectives of on-time delivery performance >95%, increased throughput by 92% and reduction in manufacturing cycle time by >79%. Preactor solutions provide lean planning and scheduling software and are helping companies to reach ‘Best in Class’.
