Manufacturing plants worldwide are turning to technology to solve challenges that have plagued their businesses for years. Increasing the automation of processes at your company comes with many benefits. PlanetTogether Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) software afford plant managers and supervisors the benefit of job allocation and management of resources. By automating your plant scheduling processes with PlanetTogether, you can save money on the costs associated with human error, which causes delayed production, profit loss, low availability of materials, and more. 

New restrictions are now in place in the supply chain that weren’t there five years ago. As a result, manufacturing plants operating without PlanetTogether APS software for their operations run the risk of delayed delivery of their products and failure to uphold their promises because of these new challenges in place. Add to this the pandemic labor shortage, and the need to automate scheduling processes to find the optimal solution for these new challenges becomes more critical than ever.

“Before it took hours to schedule [our production] manually because scheduling was based on reports; now, it only takes seconds.”


Automating your supply chain process with Advanced Planning and Scheduling software from PlanetTogether will help overcome challenges associated with product assortment, delivery, and resource availability. Planners in the manufacturing industry can now update their schedules. They know they are optimized for success because their schedule is the best possible one for the company to meet its obligations and responsibilities. Standard ERP/MRP software lacks the flexibility that PlanetTogether APS was built and designed around. 

With PlanetTogether APS, you can:

  1. Increase efficiency with optimized scheduling. 
  2. Manage throughput on resources to increase revenue.
  3. Synchronize supply with demand to reduce inventories and overstock.
  4. Provide company-wide visibility to resource capacity
  5. Enable scenario data-driven decision making

Choosing to automate your schedule with PlanetTogether APS software is the smart decision for any company in the manufacturing industry seeking to level up, reduce costs associated with human error, meet deadlines, deliver products on time, and provide a sustainable competitive atmosphere in the workplace for years to come.
