The basic steps use by many managers in Scheduling are
1. Identify the time you have available.
2. Block in the essential tasks you must carry out to succeed in your job.
3. Schedule in high priority urgent tasks and vital "housekeeping" activities.
4. Block in appropriate contingency time to handle unpredictable interruptions.
5. In the time that remains, schedule the activities that address your priorities and personal goals.

Cisco Auto-test Transforms Quality Assurance for Global Manufacturing
Producing thousands of contra-distinct appliances such as routers, switches, IP telephones, video devices, interfaces & gateways.
Supplying services: generating close to $40 billion in annual sales.
30 EMF sites worldwide. Assembling 35000 stock units containing 77,000 unique part numbers, utilising 1000 suppliers.
Control points in the production process = X2
Number of different products = X4
Number of production test engineers = Same
Cisco product yields improvement = 13.2%
Carrier Routing System improvement =13.4 %
Auto-test generates 10.3 mil. Records daily: an increase of 20% from last year.
Auto-test overseen by a team of only 25 engineers.
Such effective control systems tend to have following qualities in common
Focus on critical point
Controls are applied when failure/cost can not exceed a certain level
Integration into Established Process
Operations and processes should work smoothly with controls
Acceptance by Employees
Controls designed with employees involvement increase acceptance
Availability of Information When needed
Costs are frequently attributed to time (deadlines etc.) shortcomings or failures
How much will it cost? What will it serve? What are the returns?
It provide factual information which is useful, reliable, valid and consistent.
Each control system has its own effectiveness in each company.
It is the choice of these control systems on which the entire success of a company is dependent
To present this idea lets talk on PLCs
Overall: Management and control systems are effective when their functions are carried out correctly and that the people implementing their functions are aware of their limitations.
