The Intelligent Planning Tool For Industry 4.0
GANTTPLAN brings predictability to the digital factory. The Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) system enables manufacturing companies in a variety of industries, to achieve a smooth order flow with shorter lead times and ongoing cost optimization. It can operate as standalone software or interfaced with different ERP and MES solutions.
GANTTPLAN calculates and optimizes set-up times from three perspectives:
Static set-up time is the time to change-over to a new job, and includes equipment wash-down, preparation and routine maintenance. Depending on the previous job, the planning system will select the next task in order to reduce the number of change-overs.
The dynamic set-up time refers to material properties, such as type of material, color, and geometry (thickness, diameter) and is dynamic depending on the preceding and subsequent order. The dynamic times are mapped in a setup matrix.
Production resources and tooling (PRT) set-up times are stored directly in the production resource itself. GANTTPLAN compares the production resources/tools of the previous order with the production resources/tools of the follow-up order and, based on this, calculates the actual required changeover time.
