Detailed Scheduling functions

  • Automatic consideration of capacities (are sufficient personnel, material and other operating resources available?)
  • Consideration of alternative operations or work plans as well as transport times and idle periods
  • Planning in production order networks
  • Checking individually determinable rule violations, such as in sequences, deadlines, capacities, etc.
  • Alternative planning scenarios for comparing different simulations

The benefits you derive from Detailed Scheduling

  • Multi-resource planning considers the dependencies of several resources
  • Personnel and material availability planning as supplement
  • End-to-end transparency throughout the entire planning process
  • Consideration of actually available capacities
  • Minimisation of costs, throughput times, inventories, etc.
  • More punctual delivery
  • Fast identification of bottlenecks
  • Uncovering capacity reserves

Optimum planning – the heart of every production

The professional planning of production and planned orders is the A to Z of every production company and the most important basis for cost-optimised production. With it, delivery times are maintained, inventory stores minimised, throughput times reduced, production costs lowered and at the same time, plan changes are reacted to more quickly. All these requirements can be mastered with the MES module Detailed Scheduling.

Convenient, effective planning

The MES module Detailed Scheduling is composed of several tools saving you time compared to planning methods with spreadsheet calculations or scheduling boards.

  • Diverse evaluations and dashboards provide information about the current production status and improve readjusting of plan deviations.
  • The Gantt chart displays not only the planned production schedule but also current production data and machine statuses in real time (this requires the Machine Data Acquisition (MDA) module)
  • The module extensions for automatic Detailed Scheduling, Personnel Planning, Personnel Availability and Material Requirements Planning, etc. allow the optimum adaptation of the MES module Detailed Scheduling to your individual requirements.
  • Ergonomic, user-friendly operation: easily drag & drop orders in a Gantt chart. The effect on other orders is immediately visualised.
  • Automatic consideration of capacities – this way, sufficient personnel, material and other operating resources are always available for the planned processing operations.
  • Consideration of alternative operations or work plans as well as transport times and idle periods.
  • Planning of production order networks (available as an option)
  • Checking individually determinable rule violations, such as in sequences, deadlines, capacities, etc.
  • Alternative planning scenarios for comparing different simulations

Manual and automatic Detailed Scheduling

The MES module Detailed Scheduling is available as a manual as well as an automated scheduling tool (APS). Which solution is suitable for your production depends on the size and complexity of your order networks, the amount of work operations and alternatives as well as the complexity of setup rules or bottlenecks. We would be happy to advise you in finding the best way for your production on the basis of your individual requirements. Fill out the contact form or contact us directly under sales@fastec.de.
