Feature Spotlight: Capable to Promise

Topics: capacity planning, production planning, finite capacity, users, project management, APS, capacity, bottlenecks, constraint, resource

Capable to Promise

During a recent demo with some of our partners, we were walking through some of the standard features of our software. One of the features we covered was our Capable to Promise functionality, where schedulers can input an item number for a finished good, and a delivery date. PlanetTogether will use both available material, and available capacity to give a realistic picture of whether or not you are able to fulfill demand within a given time frame by creating a simulated job. If the delivery date can't be met, PlanetTogether will provide a realistic delivery date.

Planning vs Scheduling: Part Two - Multi-Plant Capacity Planning

Topics: Advanced Planning and Scheduling, capacity planning, production planning, finite capacity, superplant, users, project management, APS, capacity, bottlenecks, constraint, resource, MRP, multi-plant

Making it easy to source material from alternate plants

Following up on our last blog post on the distinction between Planning and Scheduling, the second component we’d like to explore is Multi-Plant Capacity Planning. With scheduling, you can see what’s happening in your plant, but with planning you can scale this to a multi-plant environment. PlanetTogether allows for a multi-plant implementation, making it easy to choose which plant you source material from, showing inventory across multiple warehouse locations in our Inventory Plan. This allows you to source from alternate plants based on available capacity, available material, proximity to the customer, or proficiency/efficiency of running the product.

Planning vs Scheduling: Part One - Timeframe

Topics: Advanced Planning and Scheduling, capacity planning, production planning, finite capacity, users, project management, APS, capacity, bottlenecks, constraint, resource, MRP

Recently a partner asked what the “Planning” part of “Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS)” encompassed, and how was this different from Scheduling. It’s an interesting question, surely scheduling is a component of planning, but what other components are there, and how can PlanetTogether bring these together into a coherent concept?
