Advanced Planning and Scheduling
Do you have problems scheduling production and managing resources? Are orders late because someone forgot to schedule an operation? Did you ever lose a good customer because production fell behind their required deadline? Manufacturing scheduling software by Sage 500 ERP solves these problems.
Sage 500 ERP includes one of the most powerful and easy-to-use Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) modules available today. This manufacturing scheduling software module uses industry-standard scheduling rules to automatically schedule production based on advanced algorithms and mathematical calculations.
System-generated schedules provide a great foundation but do not take into consideration real-world concerns. That's why the advanced manufacturing scheduling software module includes a drag-and-drop schedule board.
The schedule board displays all system-generated operation schedules, and it allows supervisors or production scheduling personnel to tweak the schedule to fit in high-priority orders or to move scheduled operations to a different machine when another breaks down.
Sage 500 ERP manufacturing scheduling software provides company-wide visibility for production schedules. Your customer service, management, sales, and other employees have online access to view the status of each customer order. It provides customer service with tools to quickly find scheduled completion dates across manufacturing facilities.
