APS for automatic optimised order scheduling

The Optimisation Edition (OE) was developed for automatic order scheduling. It is specifically designed for production companies with more complex manufacturing structures and large contract networks. The APS module is ideal for companies subject to a wide range of restrictions and rules as well as a very dynamic planning environment. GANTTPLAN OE is the best choice when frequent scheduling and experience in comprehensive planning are needed. In situations where there is a high order volume with planning constraints, a manual planning approach can achive only so much in a limited time, and often with with short-term planning errors being inevitable.

GANTTPLAN OE is based on a fast optimisation-based planning formula which calculates a detailed production plan for all production orders and process stages (including primary and secondary orders). It takes into account every parameter. Production shortages or sudden resource inavailability are automatically taken into account for the next planning run. Production control and reports are easy to follow through pre-defined colour schemes in the GANTTPLAN chart.

An overview of the benefits:

  • Fast optimisation-based planning algorithms calculate the optimal production plan for
    all production orders and stages.
  • Definition and weighting of 7 different optimization goals
  • Considers primary and secondary order relations
  • Uses all production constraints defined in the planning model
  • Extends the automatic planning to include employees – and/or tool planning
    ( = multiresource planning)
  • Enables the use of extended reports and planning material requirements

APS-Planungsmodul zur manuellen Auftragseinplanung

GANTTPLAN SE (Smart Edition) enables manual job scheduling while providing master data access and the use of integrated reports. The SE offers a cost-effective entry into the production planning process with the help of manual planning functions. It is therefore aimed at smaller production companies operating a jobbing-shop or a small production facility (up to 50 employees). In combination with ERP, MES, or BDE, companies can import their pre-planned production orders and schedule them manually in the graphical control console based on all parameters made available through the ERP interface. In addition, the APS module allows restriction and conflict analysis using a real-time algorithms that take into account every production restriction for all primary and secondary relationships. This can be a stand-alone solution or it can be extended to GANTTPLAN OE. Due to the modular design of the GANTTPLAN solutions, an expansion for multi-resource planning, additional planning functions and reports, is possible at any time.

An overview of the benefits:

  • Ability to import planning scenarios and unplanned orders from the leading ERP system
  • Visualisation of the plan scenario in the Gantt chart
  • Drag-and-Drop scheduling of orders
  • Considers primary and secondary order relations
  • Uses all production constraints defined in the planning model
  • Extends the automatic planning to include employees – and/or tool planning
    ( = multiresource planning)
  • Enables the use of extended reports and planning material requirements

APS Viewer Module for the Visualisation of Job Cancellations

The Viewer Edition (VE) is suitable for the visualization of ERP manufacturing orders in a Gantt chart and includes an integrated report module. The low-cost viewer variant is designed for use in smaller production companies with a small production facility to view the status and completion of orders . It replaces an electronic panel and reduces the cost of planning supervision. This simple module can be operated in combination with ERP, MES, and BDE systems. When there is an already existing ERP interface, the rollout is straight forward. The module supports the import and visualization of the planned orders from the ERP in the Gantt chart. VE does not include planning functions, but it can be easily combined with GANTTPLAN SE or OE modules for sales and management functions.

An overview of the benefits:

  • Import scheduled orders from the ERP system
  • Visualization of the scheduled plan scenario in the Gantt chart
  • Access and maintenance of master data
  • Use of integrated reporting
  • Extendable to Smart and Optimization Edition at any time
