Listing of Extension articles

PlanetTogether Extensions can be developed as general or customer-specific enhancements. There are several types of Extensions available. However, they generally are categorized based on the specific Extension Point in which they function. 

For getting started with Extensions, start at creating an Extension project.

How to Load/Change Extensions

Extension Points

PT Extensions

  • Split Manufacturing Orders Across Resources
    Demo Extension: splitting MOs across resources with Product Rules.
  • Post-Processing on campaign change
    PT Extension for adding post-processing instead of setup on campaign changeovers.
  • Prevent anchor drift
    PT Extension to prevent anchor drift on optimize.
  • Optimize After Import
    PT Extension to run an optimize after importing data.
  • Post Optimization Split Operation
    PT Extension to split operations based on categories.
  • CIP Scheduling
    PT Extension to schedule a CIP at the end of a job when needed. 
  • Successor MO Overlap
    PT Extension allows the scheduling of a successor order to overlap the scheduling of the predecessor after the transfer hours have ended. 
  • Can Schedule OT
    PT Extension that stops the Optimize function from scheduling jobs on overtime blocks. It also allows the user to move jobs on overtime blocks and keep them scheduled there.
  • Learning Curve
    PT Extension that produces products faster over time based on UDFs.
  • Group MO's in the Same Job
    PT Extension that groups orders with the same MO's together in the same resource.
  • Omitted Predecessor
    PT Extension that schedules successors after all predecessors in the path has been completed.
  • Flexible Operation
    PT Extension that schedules operations with the "No Sequence" UDF at different times.
  • Overlap Setup
    PT Extension allows the setup time of the successor order to overlap the predecessor. 
  • Post Sim Job Update
    PT Extension checks the predecessor-successor-related orders after an optimized simulation to see if the orders need to be rescheduled.
  • Max Delay
    PT Extension sets the release date of each MO according to the number of operations in the MO and the scheduled operations times.
  • Post Processing
    PT Extension that adds a certain amount of time to the end of the last operation in each MO alternate path.
  • Compress Right
    PT Extension compresses all predecessor orders later to get them close to the final successor. 
  • Max Inventory
    PT Extension ensures the warehouse Max inventory values are not exceeded by new jobs outputs. 
  • Can Auto-Join
    PT Extension that joins different jobs into one.
  • Date Limits
    PT Extension schedules or postpones jobs based on the attribute number range table and the attribute on the operation.
  • Post Setup
    PT Extension that checks and schedules operations according to setup times between operations. 
  • Capability Effective Range
    PT Extension that assigns effective date ranges to capabilities on specified resources.
  • Operation Material Transfer
    PT Extension checks if any job consumes materials from other jobs and schedules them as soon as possible once enough product is produced from the supplying job.
  • UI Flags
    PT Extension displays flags for values based on UDF.
  • Efficiency Window
    PT Extension allows operations to schedule before their normal release date if they have a significantly better optimize score based on the optimized rules in use.
  • Die Change Over
    PT Extension calculates additional setup based on operation attributes and tracks the attributes according to UDF's and priorities.
  • Product Report
    PT Extension creates a custom table to show stock material sources.
