• I Love it When a Plan Comes Together -- A couple week ago, I blogged about a site that had information on spreadsheet production scheduling. Using some of it's tips, I did some fine tuning to a spreadsheet developed for a client whose operation is simple enough and appropriate for both such a basic approach, and for a flavor of S-DBR.
We turned it on yesterday for the first time with current data, and HALLELUAH!!!, the workorders that ended up "in the red zone of the buffer" to a large part matched the work that the shop thought was hot. What was even better was that it highlighted one that should have been hot, but was slipping through their cracks. Cool.
