Constraints are present in every plant; even if you have enough capacity on average, there are likely “clumps” of workload that will create temporary bottlenecks. These constraints whether or not anticipated cloud your planner’s ability to create an optimal schedule. PlanetTogether’s finite constraint-based planning provides insight on where and when bottlenecks will occur and enables your planner to create an optimal schedule.
Many wonder to what extent PlanetTogether can handle constraints. Below are our answers.

A third of your goods are finished and ready to be packaged, your packager is set up and ready to go, but your current schedule does not tell your team to start packaging until all the goods are completed. As a result your average flow time is two hours longer than what it could have been had your operations been performed more continuously. PlanetTogether software understands this problem and allows for overlap in situations where you want the job operations to be performed more continuously.
