There are a lot of tools out there to help you visualize a schedule, but how about helping you create, adjust and optimize a schedule with ease? That's the hard part. PlanetTogether scheduling software makes it easy for you every step of the way.
Take care of your customers with greater agility and less chaos. PlanetTogether enables you to quickly schedule new orders to equipment, labor, and material resources with full understanding of the impacts on your other customers and on your business measures.
Easily schedule new orders with drag-and-drop, automatically, or with Insert Jobs to maximize KPI without making existing orders late.
When you change a schedule, check the Impact Analysis to see the effects on orders and KPI. Just click "Undo" if you don't like the results.
Keep everyone informed of critical information with custom Alerts. Click the Alert and drill-down into the details.
Your production schedule sets the course for your business performance. With PlanetTogether's powerful Optimization, your resources and materials are utilized according to your business objectives. Integrated MPS, MRP and detailed scheduling makes business optimization easier than ever.
Automate schedule creation by flexible weighted factors or Key Performance Indicators. Then sit back and let PlanetTogether keep your production on track.
Your factory is dynamic. PlanetTogether adjusts schedules immediately to keep everyone informed from sales to manufacturing to shipping.
When you drop an order on a different resource or in a new timeslot your work is done and you know the impact immediately.
Production scheduling always involves making trade-offs and decisions about priorities. With PlanetTogether you'll be able to evaluate alternatives faster to find better solutions.
Create Scenarios with a click and experiment in a "sandbox" environment. Compare Scenarios by KPI then easily share your findings with your team.
Turn on CoPilot, select your KPI, and unleash your server's untapped processing power to look for better Scenarios for you.
Use alternate resources, split work across machines, adjust shifts and set resource preferences. Keep manual control or allow PlanetTogether to do it for you.
Schedule in horizontal or vertical Gantts and customizable grids. Set Labels, colors and Flags for more insight.
Refine schedules quickly with tools like: Multi-Job Drag-and-drop, Resource Lock, Anchor, Split, Hold and Expedite.
Make stress-free schedule changes knowing that you can Undo or Redo them, even many actions back.
Improve schedule quality and accuracy by specifying which resources can make which products. Even set preferences and rates that vary by resource.
If you have really special constraints or rules you can use ultra flexible logic that is programmed in any Microsoft .Net language.
Get immediate ship dates for new orders even those that have multi-level Bills of Material and span multiple plants.
Monitor buffers for shipping, receiving and bottlenecks to protect against variability that can impact due dates or throughput, using Drum-Buffer-Rope (Theory of Constraints) scheduling.
Schedule accurately by representing your machine, tool, and labor resource constraints precisely: Batch, Tank, Single-Tasking, Multi-Tasking or Infinite Capacity, all with detailed working calendars.
Schedules can be very precise and efficient by using modeling tools like: Operation Overlap, Max-Delay, Transfer Times and Sequence-dependent Setup Times.
Real-time communication with the shop floor on schedule changes and work completions keeps everyone in-sync.
"We feed it the facts we know, and it automatically proposes an optimized schedule that allows us to meet those dates. It’s something we tried, but never could do manually."
"We needed a high-power scheduling system geared for mass customization. Some companies may find what they need in basic package. For those of us with massive throughout, the one size fits all approach doesn’t work."
"PlanetTogether has cut the number of “hot” jobs on our schedule so we can schedule resources more efficiently. That translates into a better work environment for everyone."

"The great thing about PlanetTogether is all machines can be grouped together on one screen. You know immediately how each machine impacts the other and their basic correlation to the whole schedule...very organized and coordinated.”
