Visual Resource Planner is a powerful tool at the heart of Capacity
Requirement Planning in Progression. Recent improvements to the Planner
give users the option to "Allow Scheduling Across
Departments," if the corresponding check box is activated on the
filtering screen. Executing this option will put all operations into a
single view and allow cross - departmental adjustments.
the Planner, predecessor operations are moved back of an operation if
pulled back in time; successor operations are moved forward if the
operation is pushed ahead. Unless the new option is selected, each
department will be presented in its own view window and the related
shifting is restricted to the operations being performed within the same
department as is the operation being moved.
