Manage Project – Single-Site Simulation

AggFlow is available as an individual project license that allows unlimited non licensed users to simulate and share a project. Access permissions are managed by the project owner(s). The Manage Project allows aggregate producers and operators to model an individual plant and identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies to accurately assess potential changes to maximize plant efficiency and achieve optimum production mixes.

Production Scheduler - Match Production to Sales

Production Scheduler is a feature for AggFlow Manage Projects to provide a definitive, yet simple method to directly tie production into sales forecasts by calculating the most optimum combination of modes to maximize the revenue and/or profit while meeting inventory, schedule and operating constraints. Using Production Scheduler gives operations and management the ability to operate more efficiently and better manage costs and schedules while providing flexibility to meet changing sales demands.

AggFlow is easily used to create an accurate and calibrated to measured rates plant model by stage and operating mode. Production Scheduler uses this information along with a sales forecast and sales product pricing to calculate the hours and combination of modes to generate the highest revenue during the forecast period. Production Scheduler includes input of:

  • Sales forecast by month for up to 24 months out
  • Creation of new forecasts and ability to advance months
  • Sales commitments regardless of pricing
  • Opening inventory tons available for sales
  • Maximum and minimum Inventory constraints
  • Capital cost of excess valued inventory
  • Stage availability based on downtime
  • Scheduled hours and days per month
  • Selection of which modes are available by month
  • Switch to manual input of scheduled hours by mode
  • Export of data into Excel

Production scheduler instantly calculates maximum achievable revenue, or by adding fixed and variable operating costs to plant and equipment, production scheduler will calculate the maximum achievable profit. Revised sales forecasts can easily be added to recalculate revenue or profit.

With production scheduler, operations are given the solution to produce what they need for when they need it, including building and knowing month end inventory predictions to meet future sales needs while controlling excess inventory and waste.

Production scheduler is supported by AggFlow by Consultants, and an initial consulting commitment is required for new users to train and ensure the plant simulation will provide accurate results.

Production Scheduler allows the plant manager to use simulated production scenarios to quickly and automatically create production schedules based on forecast sales and commitments, starting inventories and inventory constraints, employee schedules, and plant availability. Using linear programing, Production Scheduler calculates the best scenario to maximize revenue or profit based on production schedules and cost. The result is that operations can produce what they need for when they need it, while reducing unsalable or waste products. As a tool for producers, AggFlow Manage with Production Scheduler turns guessing for profits into planning for profits.

Fully Supported By Certified AggFlow Consultants

Production scheduler is supported by AggFlow Consultants who are available to work with the producer to build an accurate simulation with plant stages and modes and to train in the use of Production Scheduler. Consultants are available for any support needs for using AggFlow as a profit-building tool.

Note: To ensure AggFlow model accuracy needed for Production Scheduler to be effective, your AggFlow Consultant will request plant production and performance information that includes products splits, belt cuts and sampling results. This information can be provided to our AggFlow Consultant, and it may necessitate a site visit.


AggFlow Manage Project and Production Scheduler Options

AggFlow Manage Project is priced monthly based on an operation’s annual sales tonnage. A monthly fee activates a license for one project and includes all regular software updates. A Manage project can be purchased without Production Scheduler. To set up and use Production Scheduler requires verification that the Manage Project simulation can be run with Production Scheduler by an AggFlow Consultant. First time users for Production scheduler require purchase of 10 hours of consulting time by a certified AggFlow Consultant. 

All prices are in US Dollars.

(*To provide the critical AggFlow model accuracy needed for Production Scheduler to be effective, our AggFlow Consultant will require precise measurements of current plant production through belt cuts and sampling. Accurate plant modeling, in most cases, will be completed within 10 hours. An accurate model is dependent on the complexity of the operation and the availability of accurate data at the project’s onset. Additional hours of consulting time or a site visit by the AggFlow Consultant may be required to complete an accurate plant model.)
