Product Visual Advanced Production Scheduler
Version 1.2
Build 1.2.0.0
Date 24 June 2020

 

List of enhancements

  • Show/hide setup time by new menu item.
  • Improved handling of reservation entries & linked production orders (incl. safety lead time).
  • “Add all” function to bulk schedule production orders with a clear prioritization rule from standby resource to respective machine centers with options to
    • define the schedule start date
    • decide whether you want to take into account alternate machine centers or not
    • decide whether you want to take into account the EMAD (earliest material availability date) or not.
  • “Fill idle time” function to bulk reschedule already planned operations with a clear prioritization rule to reduce idle times on machine centers with options to
    • define the schedule start date
    • decide whether you want to take into account alternate machine centers or not
    • decide whether you want to take into account the EMAD or not
    • set number of iterations.
  • Capability to update simulation from planning board directly (incl. notification that the simulation got outdated).
  • Various enhancements of the filter options when creating a new simulation.
  • Provision of more information related with a simulation on the simulation overview page (incl. capability to add notes to a simulation).

List of fixed bugs

  • Adapted JSON handling to reduce misleading last known error message
  • It was ensured that UTF8 text coding is used internally.
  • The color picker for “Subctontractor Color” did not show up.
  • Issue with work centers containing underscores.
  • Issue with machine center names longer than 18 characters.
  • Issue when using the progress view and no required due date was set.

Product Visual Advanced Production Scheduler
Version 1.1
Build 1.1.0.1
Date 11 May 2020

 

List of enhancements

  • Support of subcontracting work centers
    Scheduling the work given to subcontractors is improved by the following enhancements:
    • Subcontracting work centers are visualized differently than the other work centers.
    • They are treated as work centers with infinite capacities
    • They can be made part of alternate routing sets.
  • Improved production order status change
    • Changing the status of a production order no longer makes a simulation outdated. Instead, the bar’s color immediately reacts to the status change of the production order if the Production Order Status View is applied.
    • Changing the production order status no longer leads to moving the production order to the standby resource.

List of fixed bugs

  • Issues in case of work and machine centers with identical numbers.

  • Tooltip not correct in languages other than English.

  • Setup/runtime handling in combination with alternate routing sets.

  • Type conversion error in EMAD calculation in case of quantities with decimals.
