Three new software options for basic to sophisticated factory-floor scheduling have been added to ERP software from Syspro, Costa Mesa, Calif. The three new Factory Scheduling programs start with a Graphical Planning Board, a basic finite-capacity scheduler with limited rules and features. The Finite Scheduler contains more sophisticated features that allow for multiple constraints to be considered, such as which machines, tools, labor, or other variables can be scheduled for a particular job. Managers can use variables such as maximum delay between operations, preferred resource selections, and maximum operation spans in setting up scheduling. The Advanced Scheduler enables managers to define their own complex scheduling rules. Jobs on different Bill-of-Material levels and stock on hand can now be “pegged” based on definable rules to ensure a feasible schedule. (800) 369-8649 • www.syspro.com
