Why PlannerOne© Production Scheduler ?

PlannerOne© Production Scheduler is the revolutionary scheduling solution that enhances the manufacturing module of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2, 2015, 2016 and 2017. Microsoft Dynamics users will access the best scheduling capabilities in real time, in a single click and at the best price / performance ratio of APS software on the market.

PlannerOne© is ready for Cloud and Mobility. It has been developed using the latest Microsoft technology (Visual Studio 2015, .Net 4.5, PowerShell) and is integrated into the Web, Tablet and Windows (RTC) client. PlannerOne© is a web application that can also be accessed via Internet Explorer. The PlannerOne© Production Scheduler component uses web services to interact with the Microsoft Dynamics NAV functionalities, enabling real-time communications that accommodate the integrity requirements of the ERP manufacturing processes.

An intuitive planning tool for all users

The PlannerOne© application is natively designed for a multi-user planning and scheduling process. PlannerOne is intuitive and easy to use.
The Windows (RTC), tablet or web client can be used to customize the interface for users based on their roles in the company. PlannerOne© for Microsoft Dynamics NAV respects this Role-Tailored logic by giving all ERP users –across all departments– access to:

• Different views of lead-times and bottlenecks to support quick decision-making on production issues (capacity sizing, subcontracting decisions, work order time-shifting, etc.).
• Interactive planning capabilities and constraint based finite-capacity scheduling algorithms that are integrated in real-time with Microsoft Dynamics NAV manufacturing process.

For example, a sales representative can display the schedule tab on an order screen and view the end date of the work order related to this order. Schedulers and planners are the main users of this component. They have access to several views:

• Resource, Production Order & Custom Gantt charts
• Load chart
• Resource Sequence list

In the workshop, team leaders can add information on the schedule, using their tablet touch screen, to alert the scheduler of production events in real time.

PlannerOne© Production Scheduler enhances Microsoft Dynamics NAV Manufacturing Module with:

Constraint-based finite-capacity scheduling
Multi-criteria scheduling dedicated to manufacturing objectives and constraints.

Load balancing optimization with a list of useable work or machine centers

Optimization of setup times based on multiple item parameters & setup matrix
For realistic setup times and production run optimization.

Graphical and interactive schedules
Whatever the modifications in the plan or in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, PlannerOne© subsequently applies the changes based on real-time synchronization of the plan. This guarantees a plan based on manufacturing constraints.

Configurable visual markers
Provide graphical information about a specific constraint on any operation and implement a collaborative process until the problem is solved.

And more features for PlannerOne Production Scheduler :

  • Grouping of production order operations
  • Multi-resource scheduling thanks to synchronization links between parallel operations
  • Detailed schedule analysis
    Display the load at finite or infinite capacity to detect production bottlenecks.
  • Take raw material availability into account
    By integrating MRP calculations.
  • Simulations in a Work Plan
  • Key performance indicators and analysis of advances/delays
