Q: How do you use the results of production scheduling to find out what the progress is of specific orders?


A: The results from production schedules are displayed in Gantt order charts. With these charts we can see whether each order is on time for delivery what the lead-time is what the progress is and the lead-time dispersion. The sales personnel in the sales department can check on the state of progress and the time for completion of each of his or her customers. Each line in the diagram below is an order. The order code is shown on the left. The left edge of the bars in the chart are the dates on which the order arrived and the right tip is on the date that the order is to be completed. The smaller darker colored bars within the larger bars indicate each step in the process.
