Ian Fraser
RFS Expert

This masterclass will be conducted by the globally renowned consultant, Mr Ian Fraser Glenday which will focus on providing the practical working methodology of Flow Manufacturing ~ RFS Approach ( Repetitive Flexible Supply ). This approach enables the companies for maximizing the Operational Productivity, reducing the Manufacturing Lead Times, at the same time optimizing Inventory and achieving substantially improved Service Levels across the total supply chain.

The production scheduling topic focused in this 2 day virtual – based workshop, is a product of around 3 decades of successful application in both the discrete manufacturing and in the Process Industries, world wide. Originally, the RFS Approach, which has its roots from the TPS (Toyota Production System) HEIJUNKA ~ Production leveling~ was proved at the KIMBERLY – CLARK operations, with phenomenal success in terms of breakthroughs in Plant Capacity, Productivity, Inventory, Cost, Delivery performance, and in employee satisfaction, way back in the 80’s. Following the success at KC, companies in the FMCG , Foods and Beverages, Chemicals, Plastics, Synthetic Fibers, Polymers etc started adopting the RFS methodology throughout the world, especially those adopting the MTS (Make to Stock) manufacturing Strategy.

One of the most astounding results is that, quantifiable performance metrics, can be observed, to substantially improve within the first 3 months of RFS implementation

Attend this Masterclass and get clear insights into

  • Why most Production Planning systems, guarantee a different plan every time it is released, and are, far from stable ?
  • The root cause for the constant fire fighting in terms of Plan vs Achievement, in meeting the customer demands.
  • The spiraling of the Response Time, leading to high Lead times, higher inventory levels, and lesser service levels, due to BATCH LOGIC of production scheduling
