Inside Our Master Production Schedule
Successfully managing a production line is a bit like being a composer. Without every instrument working in unison and on-time, it can mess up the entire flow of the orchestra. Same goes for a production line where an error can set back scheduling and reduce the operating rate below satisfactory levels.
That’s where our Master Production Schedule Excel Template comes in handy. Our MPS spreadsheet is used to assess, display and schedule the production of items for each business period.
If you find this template useful, you may also want to check out our Capacity Analysis, Cost of Quality, Bill of Materials and Manufacturing KPI templates. We have dozens of templates designed to help supply chain and operation professionals take their operation and efficiencies to the next level.
Start by recording organizational standards in the Database sheet. Fields include Product Name, Operating Line, Cycle Time, Efficiency %, Units Per Hour, Working Hours Per Day, Units Per Day, Working Days Per Week, Units Per Week, Minimum Working Days and Minimum Lot Size.
Move to the Operation Rate sheet and enter record available lines used in production.
Hop over to the Custom Orders sheet and record all confirmed orders and the corresponding Date and Order Quantity. To record a new entry, register your order in the last row.
We’re ready to move to the big enchilada of this template, the MPS sheet. Select each of your products to be added to the Master Production Schedule. Certain fields will update automatically based on your prior inputs, fields such as Operating Line, Lot Size and Capacity. Add Projected Stock for each product.
Add your production quantity according to the schedule to cover customer orders.
Dynamic filters allow you to preview MPS, ATP (Availability to Promise, essentially the projected inventory available to sell) and custom orders.
All of that data will carry over to the Operation Tab where the operating line capacity will calculate automatically. Conditional formatting will highlight the operation rate percentage based on the percentage limits of. The placeholder for Over Rate % is 95%, Warning Rate is 85% and Low Rate 80%. Adjust these to organizational standards as it will alert you to any anomalies in operation rate.
And just like that, you’ve completed a Master Production Schedule. Your orchestra can now produce beautiful and precise music.
