Key Features and Functions
Having the capability to create and execute an achievable schedule requires a comprehensive view of the current situation and available resources, as well as the tools to perform efficient re-scheduling if necessary. SYSPRO’s visual scheduling products provide this capability to suit all levels of sophistication and complexity, from basic manual drag and drop to automatic algorithm-driven scheduling and changeover optimization.
- Whether you operate a simple scheduling environment requiring single-constraint finite scheduling, or a complex environment requiring multi-constraint and rules based finite scheduling, SYSPRO can help you optimize your scheduling activities with its Graphical Planning Board, Factory Scheduler or Advanced Scheduler.
- For batch process environments, SYSPRO Factory Scheduling provides the planner with an interactive decision support tool that helps balance demand and resource availability. Optimization is enhanced through the consideration of priorities, constraints and conflicts, as well as sequencing and synchronization requirements.
- Automatic forward, backward and bi-directional scheduling is available, along with manual intervention. The customizable graphical interface enables quick and easy identification of schedule loads, job and operation statuses and links, and resource availability. One-click schedule performance metrics, as well as the ability to run, save and compare schedules, provide what-if capability and enable the scheduler to choose the best option for the current circumstances.
- On-the-fly extraction of work-to-lists and other reports is via standard reports, as well as the user-friendly report writer, while features such as emailing and web publishing of information enable the current schedule and metrics to be viewed by all stakeholders.
