Macola Tech Tip

The 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.

    Within 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.
