Optimization based production planing

Better production requires better planing.
GANTTPLAN complements existing ERP systems as a third generation planning tool (Advanced Planning and Scheduling System = > APS) in the fine planing of production. By displaying a familiar Gantt diagram, the planning proves to be extremely user-friendly and allows planners full freedom of action.

Connected to all systems

By using GANTTPLAN, either as an add-on to existing systems or as a "stand-alone" solution, small and medium-sized enterprises achieve greater efficiency, transparency and reliability in the course of the order, so that in the entire planning process a cost optimization arises. Applications can be found in the ERP, MES, BDE/MDE and time economy sectors. They can be seamlessly integrated into existing systems.

GanttPlan comes with a predefined data structure (see right) that can be used to map production conditions. Each master data position offers many customization options that can be considered if needed.

Graphic control center – efficiency through transparency

The familiar representation of a Gantt diagram proves that planning is extremely user-friendly. Effects can be quickly seen and give the user a full overview of resources:

  • production plan on all production orders

  • secondary and primary relationships

  • all defined capacities and production restrictions

  • order networks

  • termination delays if feedback is missing

  • disruptions are deposited and observed at the next planning run

  • color schemes

Manage orders and resources intelligently

Optimization goals

The intelligent planning algorithm assigns orders only to machines with spare capacity, or only if the required materials, employees and/or equipment are available. In this way, the different planning levels or departments can be optimally harmonized and coordinated. This will help planners identify bottlenecks or conflicts that lead to schedule delays at an early stage.

GANTTPLAN also impress with the following characteristic:

  • Definition and weighting of 7 different optimization goals

  • Attention to secondary and primary relationships

  • Restriction test with real-time algorithm and conflict analysis

  • Compliance with all production restrictions defined in the planning model

  • Use of material demand planning with extended reports

Optimization goals

Manual adjustment

Solution options proposed by GANTTPLAN can be independently checked for changes, so that the planner is given full freedom of action before the final order plan is released. This allows him almost playfully:

  • import the plan scenario and unplanned orders from the leading ERP systems

  • manual drag and drop planning of orders

  • visualization of the scheduled plan scenario in the control center

  • access and maintenance of master data

  • using integrated reporting

  • forward and backward planning

Working with graphical control center

After order call for appointments, planners can view the result visualization in an individual way in the graphical control center and use an experiment manager to simulate additional appearance/requirements in order to provide dynamic statements about their delivery dates and resource utilization. This allows the planner to work quickly and comfortably.

Know what happens at all times

With GANTTPLAN, identified plans can be turned into reality at the touch of a button. GANTTPLAN helps with documentation through tabular and graphic evaluations, such as capacity mountains, creation of its own reports, etc.

Required resources are clearly displayed depending on each other. This means that there are different production scenarios for all resources on one platform.

Machines, employees, manufacturing aids, campaigns, qualities, etc. are always an overview.
