Planning and Scheduling

Management solution providing complete manufacturing lifecycle management.

Planning and Scheduling Software from SYSPRO

Planning and scheduling are major challenges for many organizations. The variables within processes can make or break a company, and unsatisfactory production planning leads to high operating costs and potential losses.

SYSPRO’s Manufacturing Operations Management solution provides complete manufacturing lifecycle management from planning, scheduling, publishing, collecting, tracking and analysing to optimise and improve end-to-end manufacturing operations. Together with SYSPRO’s ERP this Manufacturing Execution System (MES) offers a unique level of delivery, cost and quality control of manufacturing operations for job shop, batch production, production line and mixed mode environments.

Planning and scheduling attuned to the various manufacturing modes, recognizes available resources, tools and equipment, required maintenance and quality as it lays out and maintains the best schedules for completing work on time and making the most of available resources. Integrated quality management also manages equipment calibration cycles and corrective actions as well as product quality testing and certification needs.

Using an ERP System will assist with a number of goals

Manufacturing Operations Management supports your complete manufacturing lifecycle, to provide you with a 360˚ view of your production. In addition, the SYSPRO ERP Solution also enables you to automatically connect with machines in order to read data without manual inputs.

The solution enables organisations to create accurate schedules that factor in constraints around tooling, machines, personnel and inventory. Manufacturers are then able to make smarter use of materials and resources helping them deliver to customers faster and in the most cost-effective way possible.

Benefits Include:

  • Flexible and simple to use
  • Easily create, update and share schedules
  • Shorten delivery times with smarter use of materials and resources
  • Give accurate customer promise dates by quickly simulating scenarios based on real capacity

Frontline managers need complete visibility and control of the shop floor to prevent problems such as overruns, downtime, poor employee or machine performance and excessive scrap from occurring. Collecting this data by conventional methods can be complicated, time-consuming and expensive.
