Key Concepts

Departments represent groupings of resources that can be viewed together within a plant. They have no impact on scheduling and often correspond to ERP work centers.

Setting Up

Departments are typically imported from the client's ERP, but they can also be manually created to edited within the Resources tab.


In the Gantt view, the Departments are listed at the top-left corner. Users can choose to display resources from all departments within the plant, or to display only the resources from a specific plant.

Department Specific Frozen Span

You can set a Department-Specific Frozen Span by double-clicking on a Department from Settings | Scenario Data |Resources. Select a time span from the drop-down menu and make sure that the "Use Department Span" is checked to apply the changes. 

Note: The Department Frozen Span will override the Plant Stable Span
