Our Solution: Schedule++
This powerful detailed scheduling software was developed specifically for the needs of the process industries (chemicals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food, etc.). It offers the planner a detailed visualization of the schedule as well as the possibility to keep at each moment an overview over all resources needed for production (devices, manpower, raw materials,...). Different scheduling algorithms, e.g. for the optimization of device load and cleaning, are available, such that several scenarios can be analyzed before a change of the plan is confirmed. With these features, an optimal usage of the production capacity can be achieved.
On the software level, Schedule++ can, on the contrary to other APS systems, be viewed as an add-in to common ERP systems (like SAP R/3). There is no separate server and no separate database management system required, which reduces the effort for installation and administration significantly.
