Large manufacturing assembly plants with sub assembly lines, sequenced material deliveries, and batch driven primary manufacturing operations often struggle with coordinating their sequenced part manufacturing and kitting operations with the dynamic constraints of the main final assembly line. This paper will outline the high level data model, workflow and use-case scenarios of how the Factboard system integrates into the factory's engineering and transactional data sources as well as how users have been able to use this more accurate, detailed and timely information to make better decisions.
