Taylor’s Batch Allocator takes the production plan generated by ERP and uses two decision techniques to best match packaging or customer orders to production lots.
Firstly, Batch Allocator allows you to define business rules for how you want to allocate available production among the customers in your distribution chain—these rules can be hard or soft. For example, create a soft rule enabling the system to vary the actual quantity of an order by 10 % in a regional warehouse. Or create a hard rule specifying that orders from a particular distribution center must be manufactured by a given plant.
Batch Allocator also uses a second decision-making engine that employs genetic algorithms to rapidly evaluate various ways of allocating orders to production lots finding the one that best matches the actual packaging requirements. It rebuilds the ERP production plan by rapidly evaluating numerous alternatives until it finds one that meets your production constraints. If necessary, Batch Allocator recommends the creation of new batches or the deletion of batches planned by ERP.
