Production Scheduling – Easily create, view, modify and sequence production activities
The Production Scheduling software of JobPRO enables the production manager / foreman and the work-centre Artisan to easily create (foreman only), view, modify and sequence the production work-centre activities.
The benefits of the Production Scheduling module are immediately evident on the shop-floor by the foreman and the artisans as the the latter are able to view the list of their work-centre activities on their shop-floor workstation are able to assign the next Activity to a groups of work-centres.
Production Scheduling by work-centre
The production scheduling module provides your production manager with powerful tools which can be used to optimize in real-time work loads across work centers. Scheduling can be optimized with custom filters and advanced planning functions to programatically arrange your work requirements based on your custom criteria and constraints. Activities can be scheduled per work order (Job) and Operator / Artisan .
Activity control, tracking and timing by work-centre / artisan
The production manager or shop-floor foreman can schedule and allocate the activies to an operator and / or work-centre machine. Each Operator then receives a view of his work-centre Activities and can then fire the Start, Pause and Stop of each Activity thus rendering an ACTUAL time and cost per activity . The production scheduling software will track & time each activity thus permittign an actual versus estimate comparison . Before the start of Activity the Artisan can view associated engineering schematics and run a check-list of actions before ‘STARTing’ the activity.
