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.
