Software’s Advanced Graphical Scheduling for Macola
In today’s high velocity, global economy, it is no longer
enough to say that you have the ability to deliver a product. And if
this promise relies on the use of scarce resources (human, material,
facility, utility, etc…) within your organization, you need to be able
to react quickly to changes in process and product with minimum
disruption. You need to maximize customer service levels and minimize
costs within your operation.
Advanced Graphical Scheduling (AGS) benefits from world class designs
and implements state-of-the-art technology within its solution. It uses
an intuitive user interface that is tightly integrated to the Exact
Macola Progression or Macola ES back office system. You have the ability
to see and respond to changes on your shop floor quickly and
that every company has different needs and philosophies regarding
production scheduling, Exact has a multi-tier solution that will fit
your particular needs and can grow with your organization. Whether you
believe in Forward or Backward Finite Theory of Constraints, Exact AGS
has the ability to drive your planning and scheduling as you desire.
better more consistent levels of customer service to improve
models of AGS are available to meet your specific needs:
definable operation and product attributes
the usage of additional resources such as labor, tools, etc.
up or changeover times that are sequence dependent.
batching between operations (overlapping operations)
constraints during the scheduling process e.g. machine and labor etc.
capabilities as a constraint
the resources that can be selected based on previous resources
the start of an operation based on the previous operation start/finish
assembly/disassembly BOM structures within a single user.
BOM data structures to peg or allocate materials from one or more
producing orders to one or more consuming orders.
pegging rules to define which consuming and producing orders can be
the start of consuming orders based on completion time of producing
complex “optimization” dispatching scheduling rules to, for
example, introduce preferred color sequencing to minimize set up time,
or minimize work in process.
This is an additional module for Exact software. AGS is a
Preactor product supported by Exact Software. For more information
