Why you need GANTTPLAN

Stiffer competition, increasing cost pressure and changing customer demands are forcing companies to optimize production even more. Besides addressing the various optimization goals such as reducing the tooling or manufacturing costs, it is also essential to monitor and control all resources and restrictions relevant to planning in the production department. This is often complicated by competing optimization goals.

Conventional planning methods like Excel are far outmatched by such a complex task. An intelligent planning solution is the answer: An Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) system like GANTTPLAN enables a smooth order flow, short lead times and ongoing cost optimization. These are the hallmarks of the smart, efficient factory of tomorrow.

GANTTPLAN is future proof

GANTTPLAN is powerful, state-of-the-art standard software with a service-oriented architecture and container-based design.

Equipped with the new web client, the application is additionally available on every device via web browser.

We are expanding GANTTPLAN to handle automated processes. The APS software will be able to react to external influences and take any necessary actions independently, for example. Features such as intelligent personnel requirement and production planning using artificial intelligence and neuronal networks are also in the pipeline.

What’s more, GANTTPLAN can be seamlessly integrated into existing ERP and MES systems for digital networking. This perfect interaction saves even more time and money for your company during planning and operation.
