Planning in EXCEL? Not a solution!

You are probably, like many of the planner we come into contact with, experiencing challenges with lack of visibility, fast re-planning and keeping track of materials used by the plan. Why not start using a tool that have all the functions you have today but with a dramatically improved visibility? You will be amazed by the ease of use and the power of getting the overview.

The ROI of a scheduling solution

Keep track of restrains, couplings and resources in your schedule.

In many cases we have seen that people that experience ROB-EX for the first time get impressed with the power of the overview. And even if argument for ease of use is great, there are so many more reasons for investing in scheduling. ROB-EX is the tool for "production scheduling" where the horizon is short and environment conditions changes fast. We have seen our clients gotten the best values out from:

• Less out of time deliveries

• Less production stops due to lack of resources

• Better re-scheduling after production incidents like machine breakdown

• And to summarize it is all about securing that you can deliver on your promises to your customers. ROB-EX is the best insurance you can buy!

The planner remains in charge

 

An electronic plan provides astonishing overview and will immediately show any bottlenecks in resources, capacity or raw material. The Gantt-chart shows all orders and their progress in real-time. With that is also the impact of the current plan on stock levels and (FTE) capacity requirements directly indicated. ROB-EX supports the planner by automating time-consuming tasks like import of weekly plans and stock levels. Our philosophy is that the planner still makes the best decisions on what to do when a planning constraint is broken. Instead of investing a lot of time and money in complex solvers we show the planner the reality and give him the opportunity to truly optimize his plan.

To make this easy have we made standard connectors for all the major ERP and SCM suppliers. Those connectors are easy to install and makes it so much easier to start using the ROB-EX. We also have an even simpler method where we use an excel sheet to get the data in. That tool is so easy that anyone with some Excel experience can make it.
