Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS)
Maximize tooling, machine, and work center utilization with finite capacity scheduling and rough-cut capacity planning.
Manage Resource Constraints with Powerful Advanced Planning & Scheduling (APS)
Manage and monitor your shop floor schedule and work center capacity, both finite and infinite. GRP Manufacturing Edition’s Advanced Planning and Scheduling allows manufacturers to consistently and cost-effectively meet customer demands by setting accurate and reliable delivery dates based on the actual availability of resources.
Optimize manufacturing production by integrating key elements such as materials, production capacity, process sequence, supplier capacity, and facility schedules, into a powerful, real-time planning and execution application. Advanced Planning and Scheduling software allows users to accurately schedule production against work centers, machines, and tooling resources. It also accurately determines requirements for materials and capacity while providing resource utilization and efficiency reporting for expensive capital equipment.
Key Benefits of Advanced Planning and Scheduling Software for Your Agency/ Company
Finite Capacity Scheduling
Maximize resource schedules without overloading machines or work centers. Use tooling constraints to ensure that production has what they need to get the job done on time.
Rough Cut Capacity Planning (RCCP)
Verify that you have sufficient capacity to meet the requirements for your master schedule. Prioritize production orders for scheduling using priority codes. Understand production demands for high profile customers.
Work Center Utilization
Compare the available hours for a work center to the actual hours that are scheduled for a work center. Utilization reports help planners to balance demand against available capacity.
Important Features of Advanced Planning and Scheduling
