24-6-2021 - The Grain today announces Checkmate. The AI-based application for accelerated production planning and scheduling in the industry was developed with support from VLAIO. The Grain integrates in Checkmate the in-house knowledge on the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for planning and production that has been built up and tested in various industries over the past years. The AI-driven planning tool allows for real-time consideration of all kinds of production and environmental factors, such as unforeseen absences, machine downtime, extra orders and rework. Checkmate optimises the planning per day, per hour or even per minute. In this way, planners take the best possible decision at any time and can meet or even exceed (changing) targets. The results are also interesting in the long run, such as increased capacity utilisation (+20%) and better just-in-time deliveries (up to +30%), to lower lead times (up to -25%), shorter production times (up to -15%) and reduced labour costs (up to -30%).
