The hypothesis was proposed on the basis of the problem that the production scheduling technique is ineffective in terms of the productivity and efficiency of the production. Open ended and close ended questions were used to collect data. During analysis, initially the data was transcribed and the write up was arranged …show more content…
Thus more specifically to the case studies:
4. What can be learnt from GBL and ALSTOM for production scheduling techniques?
To establish the researcher’s proposal of the effective production scheduling technique would lead to the profitability and competitive advantage to the organisation a hypothesis has been planned. As per the same hypothesis the organisations who have effective production scheduling technique can gain advantage. The satisfied customer would come back for the future purchase and also probably recommends to other about the product. Thus the revenue of the company automatically increases and it lead to increase the profitability of the company.
Ho: (Proposed hypothesis) An integrated Production Scheduling software (e.g. PRIMAERVA) will better assist firms in gaining effective competitive advantage than a Standalone production scheduling software (e.g. SAP with PP module)
H1: (Null hypothesis) A Standalone production scheduling software (e.g. SAP with PP module) will be better than a an integrated Production Scheduling software (e.g. PRIMAERVA) in gaining effective competitive …show more content…
PRIMAVERA is basically intelligent and smart computer software. This software is initially used in the huge manufacturing industries. PRIMAVERA is a software system which includes the preloaded in their database. On the basis of the database, PRIMAVERA plans and schedules the entire production. In PRIMAVERA, whenever the new data of the required production is added, the software automatically designs the planning and schedules of the proposed production. As the PRIMAVERA software gets the full data of the new proposed production, it designs the whole production plan as well as breaking down the small different jobs. It means it also schedules the small jobs which have to be completed several at the same
