Toyota post-production activity planning
The scheduling of post-production activities is complex because:
The installation activities require specific resources, They require versatile operators’ skills, They are spread among different shifts, Vehicles have delivery deadlines.
Therefore, a careful scheduling of work orders is needed to ensure smooth and optimized operations.

Artelys operational computation module
In order to improve the scheduling process of the following day’s activities, Artelys has developed an operational computation module deployed as a micro-service that is directly integrated into the application developed in-house by TME for their planning processes.
The developed module schedules the activities of the following day while optimising several metrics using Artelys Kalis, a constraint-programming solver with an interface dedicated to scheduling problems. The process of creating the following day’s schedule has been improved by replacing a tedious manual Excel process and has been shortened from approximately 2.5 hours to less than 30 minutes, while building solutions of better quality.
The computing speed allows for intra-day re-scheduling whenever a contingency occurs, as Artelys’ solution allows to schedule up to thousands of tasks in less than a minute. The solution is in use 7 days a week and is progressively deployed in all TME workshops.
