Planning and Scheduling are two different things. While production planning deals with long-mid-term horizon, scheduling deals with short term. In some cases minutes ahead and in others few weeks or months. Mastering both aspects for your business can lead to increased profits and improved customer service.

Our Production Planning and Scheduling Solution provides a suite of production planning and scheduling products for small, medium and large companies, from equipment OEMs to Owner-Operators. The solution uses advanced math to analyze and calculate achievable production schedules, taking into account a range of constraints and your specific business rules. It also enables planners to generate and evaluate multiple possible scenarios so they can react quickly and intelligently to changes.

By connecting you’re planning and scheduling operations digitally to you entire manufacturing operations you will be able improve interdepartmental communication, reduce inventories, shorten production cycles, and increase your level of service to your customers.

Production Planning & Scheduling

Solution Capabilities

Explore the key areas of this solution.

Advanced Constraint Modeling

Model advanced resource constraints and advanced inter-operation constraints including limits on the time between operations and if they can be extended.

Advanced Material Handling

Implement customer specific rules to account for how materials are to be managed and consumed.

Advanced Schedule Optimization

Define additional manufacturing schedule optimization rules to minimizing changeover times, account for preferred sequencing, and campaigning.

Assembly Process Visualization

Visualize the production process from raw materials through to finished goods and sales orders including material dependencies to help identify where shortages will occur.

BOM Level Planning

Calculate the impact of proposed purchase requirements from asset planning BOMs and export to an ERP system, Excel, etc. for action as needed.

Development Environment (Ultimate)

Access and alter the database schema as required to solve specific scheduling problems and create custom data manipulation tools for use with the workflow engine.

Interactive Schedule Viewing

View, search, and interact with schedules to track progress of orders, assess production performance, and provide up to the minute work-to-do lists.

Interactive Schedule Visualization

Display the Master machine Production Schedule as stock and capacity graphs. Easily edit it and visualize the changes reflected in linked plots and grids.

Make-To-Order Planning

In a make-to-order environment, stock levels of finished and intermediate items will not be part of the key process parameters. But there will still be the need to evaluate the effects of future demand changes on the manufacturing process. When a change in demand occurs, whether in terms of quantity or delivery dates, there is a need to be able to quickly assess if it is possible to meet the new requirements.
