Why Choose VPS

Get A Better Understanding

See production orders, routings, dependencies, due dates, resource workloads and bottlenecks at one glance.

All graphs are interactive, so that you can take corrective action with simple mouse clicks immediately.

Increased Operational Agility

This transparency yields operational agility and enables NAV users to quickly react when things don't go to plan.

As a result, capacities are better utilised, delivery time commitments are stronger and customer satisfaction increases.

Quick Return on Investment

What is really intriguing: users do not need extensive training to work with the Visual Production Scheduler, and no investment is required in data quality.

Users are able to start immediately after the program is set up.

Visual Production Scheduler Features - five highlights of the production scheduling add-in

 

Automatic Scheduling of Successors and Predecessors

When operations that are part of a production order are moved, the successors and predecessors can be automatically shifted with them, while at the same time the float time will be minimised. This can be done with both sequential and parallel operations.

 

 

Complete Integration in NAV

The VPS has been completely integrated into Microsoft Dynamics NAV as a page, making use of the Dynamics NAV client extensibility framework. This integration allows for a seamless collaboration of NAV and the add-in. Double-clicking on production orders for instance opens the production order card, while double-clicking on a work center correspondingly opens the work center card.

 

Visual Decision Support in Real Time

The Visual Production Scheduler is not just an interactive Gantt chart. Apart from the time-related position of production orders and their allocation to resources it also shows the workload of the resources. When a production order is moved exceeding resource capacities, a visual warning will be displayed enabling you to react immediately. This way, you can keep dates and capacities in check any time!

 

Drag & Drop Planning of Production Orders

Move the position of production orders by simple mouse actions – horizontally to modify start and end dates or vertically to modify assignments to different work or machine centers. When moving production orders, you can also recognise the capacities of resources, and non-working periods are visually emphasised in the calendar.

 

 

Availability of Material

By right clicking on the production order, a graphical bill of material (BOM) of that specific production order opens according to the planned starting date. Simulate possible disposabilities of the material for an earlier date or simulate different quantitites and you can easily decide, if you want to start working on this production order earlier or not.

Automatic Scheduling of Successors and Predecessors

When operations that are part of a production order are moved, the successors and predecessors can be automatically shifted with them, while at the same time the float time is always minimised. This can be done with both sequential and parallel operations.

 

Availability of Material

By right clicking on the production order, a graphical bill of material (BOM) of that specific production order opens according to the planned starting date. Simulate possible disposabilities of the material for an earlier date or simulate different quantitites and you can easily decide, if you want to start working on this production order earlier or not.
