Gantt Charts are vital to processes that require planning of important roles. Unfortunately, Dynamics NAV does not feature such visual planning support.
Built perfectly for Role Tailored versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Visual Production Scheduler features an array of features;
Drag and Drop Production Orders
Move the position of production orders by simple mouse actions – horizontally to modify start and end dates or vertically to modify assignments to different work or machine centers. When moving production orders, you can also recognise the capacities of resources, and non-working periods are visually emphasised in the calendar.
Seamless Integration with Dynamics NAV
The Visual Production Scheduler has been completely integrated into Microsoft Dynamics NAV as a page applying the Dynamics NAV .NET Framework Interoperability concept. This integration allows for a seamless collaboration of Microsoft Dynamics NAV and the add-in. Double-clicking on production orders for instance opens the production order card, while double-clicking on a work center correspondingly opens the work center card.
Realtime visual decision support
The Visual Production Scheduler is not just an interactive Gantt chart. Apart from the time-related position of production orders and their allocation to resources it also shows the workload of the resources. When a production order is moved exceeding resource capacities, a visual warning will be displayed enabling you to react immediately. This way, you can keep dates and capacities in check any time!
Automatic Successor and Predesecessor Scheduler
When operations being part of a production order are moved, the successors and predecessors can be automatically shifted with them while at the same time the float time is always minimised. This can be done with both sequential and parallel operations.
Disposability of material
By a right click on the production order a graphical bill of material of the PO opens according to the planned starting date. Simulate possible disposabilities of the material for an earlier date and you can easily decide, if you want to postpone a production order or not.
