JobPack Core Scheduler enables manufacturers to create efficient schedules for the production shop floor. The most recent version enables instant recalculation when running scenarios and includes a time lapse view to show how the schedule is loaded. Workflows are scheduled to prioritize jobs based on a variety of variables. Furnace/Box Scheduling takes individual operations from different orders and enables searching custom fields to group together operations with the same characteristics. Saved “snapshots” of the production schedule and its data can be saved for later review or to share with others. Personnel scheduling enables defining qualifications and availability of personnel to apply a secondary constraint to the schedule and planning board.
