Production scheduling for low-volume, high-mix work typical of most job/batch shops is challenging. Our Shop-floor scheduling software allows you to meet all your delivery time frames for each sales order and for every client.

As your business grows substantially, scheduling manually or with spreadsheets become impossible. It’s under such situations it becomes inevitable to use a production scheduling software to handle more / complex jobs under tighter constraints than ever.

Optimization of shop-floor requires data that is accurate.

That’s because the cycle-time “guesstimates” common in job shops don’t work with a scheduling engine, while clean, accurate routings are more accurate in a repeating-job environment, where cycle times are predictable.  Finite scheduling looks at work-center/ machine capacity availability, manpower capacity (shifts), and then organizes everything based on manufacturing lead times and priorities to deliver a shop-floor order schedule for the shop to work on.
