IA Production & Scheduling for SAP Business One

IA Production & Scheduling is a live graphical production planning board for SAP Business One.

Rough cut capacity planning takes place by comparing the capacity plan to work centre capacities. The system plans by forward scheduling your production order operations and calculating the planned work order completion dates.

The planning board will plot capacity on a daily basis and can account for queue times, overlapping operations, and capacity constraints in order to show where overloads exist. Selecting a specific day and resource will show the footprint of the load, allowing manual drag & drop adjustment or an auto schedule to remove the overload.

Capacity is defined against standard resources in SAP Business One. The single run capacity is used as the base maximum load when forward scheduling. It is also possible to group the board by project and / or Sales Order, giving a complete 360 degree view of supply from production.
