Advanced Planning Board

APB is an automated and integrated plant planning system. Utilizing an automated method to assign point/cost/time-basis for automated scheduling, it sorts order operations at machine centers assuring total balance and optimization of your operational workload. This simplifies the day-to-day tasks of your scheduler and ensures better operational performance to deliver orders, on-time, to your customer.

Flexible point Formula System
Flexible Point & Formula System
The Converting Scheduling engine operates off of a sophisticated and flexible point system, based on assigned formulas to support a push and/or pull planning culture depending on business needs through rules established.  The system encapsulates operational logistics across your entire operation and appropriately prioritizes orders and reserves machine time.  With flexibility, order characteristics are weighted to generate the perfect schedule that optimizes proper load balance and throughput. 
Dynamic Scheduling
Using point-based calculations, the system considers historical information for establishing set-up and run speeds delivering an accurate view of the schedule. If an unscheduled downtime event occurs, the system will dynamically reschedule maximizing all available machines. Schedulers can then run quick “what if” scenarios to see the impact on entire operations and schedule. Lineups can be modified from any location-mobilizing the scheduler.
Machine and LoadBalancing
Machine & Load Balancing
Machine balancing is accomplished by using alternate/“like” machines determined by historical run information. This supports immediate decision-making, based on real-time information, for improved capacity management.
