Case Study: Planning and Scheduling at John Smith Pvt .Ltd
John Smith is a manufacturing organisation of apparels and accessories, specialising in
both men and women segments. The organisation started in the US and gradually
extended its different branches and merchandise to other nations as well. The
organisation was not only favoured by customers but was also loved by its employees
for the work environment it provided. Employees were not only paid well but were also
provided good appraisals that motivated them to give their best to the organisation.
Current planner Mr. Jackson had been working with the organisation for the past 15
years and now wanted to take retirement from his work due to his age. The organisation
bid him farewell and Mr.Max was hired as the new planner for the organisation on the
basis of his qualifications and experience. After Mr. Max completed 1 year, the
organisation observed dissatisfaction
Among its employees. The reason was that employees were not happy with the way
production was carried out. There was too much pressure on employees, and Mr. Max
was accepting more orders than the workers could manage.
This was demotivating workers and employees, and as a result , the company observed
the highest attrition rate in its history. The management immediately reacted to the
situation and called back Mr. Jackson as an external planning consultant to address the
issue at the earliest,
Because management was losing its manpower, which was affecting the business.
Mr. Jackson paid a visit to the organisation and studied the records for the past 1 year.

He also
Had a discussion with the new planner, Mr. Max, for the current appraisal system. On
the basis of his observations and discussions, Mr. Jackson made certain conclusions.
He stated that Mr. Max was not following the appropriate production process, because
the number of orders accepted for production was more than the resources available at
the production unit. He also stated that the problem was not completely Mr. Maxs fault,
because the organisation did not train him on the existing production process and
neither did they make him aware of the competitors and the market.
