SYSPRO Factory Scheduling is a range of scheduling products that consists of three separate applications. These are:
The products increase in functional richness, complexity and cost as you move up in the range. The Graphical Planning Board is a basic finite scheduling tool which presents your schedule graphically, but will normally require quite a bit of manual intervention by the scheduler. On the other side of the scale, the Advanced Scheduler is a sophisticated scheduling system, employing advanced scheduling algorithms and considering all constraints such as tooling, material requirements etc. The Advanced Scheduler is the only tool in the range which can be considered a true APS (advanced planning and scheduling) tool. The other two products are finite scheduling tools, i.e. only the scheduling portion of APS.
- The Graphical Planning Board
- The Finite Scheduler
- The Advanced Scheduler
The scheduling applications works in conjunction with the system's master scheduling and material requirements planning tools to provide end-to-end planning and scheduling capability.
