SIMATIC IT Preactor - Advanced Planning
Advanced Planning software is a strategic decision tool designed to aid you in long and mid-term planning. It considers forecast and long-term orders, support decision making about the feasibility and affects the general direction of productions.
Advanced planning software supports major production capacity decisions surrounding extending the workforce, resource capacity, and factories. It helps you determine what and how much to make, where and when to make it, and exactly what materials and resources are required.
Planning can be executed in finite or infinite capacity mode and planning time periods can be days, weeks, months, or a combination of all three. If used together with our advanced scheduling system, detailed production schedule information can be sent back to the planning system to override planned volume with scheduled volume. Master Production Schedule (MPS) can then be re-calculated using the production schedule as the base for new results.
Advanced Planning is made up of powerful features that allow you to build a custom solution. Read more about these features below.
