    High-volume or continuous-flow production requires a very flexible scheduling system. The GLOVIA G2 Repetitive Manufacturing application satisfies this requirement by providing a means to schedule, manage and control production in a high volume or repetitive manufacturing environment.

    A Flexible Scheduling System

    Repetitive Manufacturing gives you the flexibility to adjust repetitive production schedules as often as necessary and with minimal user intervention. The solution also takes intervening factors, such as fluctuations in production capacity and changes in demand patterns, into account, making the whole process much more efficient.

    Performance Visibility

    To ensure that you always have immediate visibility to actual performance, Repetitive Manufacturing keeps track of production progress. As unit completions are recorded, deviations and cumulative totals-by-period can be compared to the scheduled rates and quantities, alerting you to take timely corrective action if necessary. Preferences in the way this information is presented can be accommodated using the grid configuration capabilities.


    To support a ‘Lean’ factory – inventories are ‘pulled’ to each production location on an ‘as needed’ Just-In-Time basis. With Repetitive Manufacturing, you have all the tools you need to identify the net inventory requirements at each production line, unit or cell and to manage the pull of the inventories required at the line-side in order to sustain the scheduled production rates.

    Mass Customization

    Repetitive Manufacturing schedules allow you to maintain a unique bill of materials and routing for each part being manufactured. The system automatically uses the current version in effect, or you can perform an online override and create a modified version of the current bill of material and routing. You can tailor product configurations as needed to respond to current production conditions or to meet unique customer requirements.

    Outside Processing

    Given the increased use of outsourcing, outside processing may very well be a part of your planned routing. Repetitive Manufacturing gives you the ability to schedule outside processing by external suppliers into your repetitive manufacturing process. This job step can be easily integrated into the repetitive line.

    Work-in-Process Financial Visibility

    Repetitive Manufacturing gives you clear and accurate visibility into your current production investment. You have the option to have each schedule provide an online valuation of value-added costs for material, labor, machine, overhead, and outside processing operations.

    The total value of completed items is tracked for easy comparison against estimated costs. All transaction activity is tracked for posting and reporting to provide a complete financial view.
