Whether you want to schedule on a very rough basis or if you need details for all your departments and work centers, DynamicsPrint gives you what you need.
Once the plan is defined you can reschedule in a very fast and sophisticated way, by moving a process, and with one keystroke reschedule all the associated operations in the job.
A form to overview the work in progress gives you a quick look and feel of the actual production status.
A simple plan can be created with deadlines. A deadline is a predefined date for which an activity or an action is supposed to take place, such as to receive the material, proofs, or delivery.
Gross planning checks the capacity for all the work centers involved in the job, and according to the deadlines (ex. delivery date), the job is scheduled. If any problems are identified, the system will warn you. This could be overloaded capacity, or lack of materials to complete the job. The text for warnings is user-configurable, hence using a language that everybody can understand.
The CSR will have a complete overview of all operations, in a natural process index order.
The estimated time consumption for each operation is listed on the screen, adjusted with an efficiency percentage for each machine.
The DynamicsPrint Gantt chart gives you a real-time graphical production overview.
The nice and easy-to-understand Gantt chart timeline is the quickest and most functional way to plan, schedule, manage, and assign all your jobs with drag & drop simplicity.
Any change in the schedule will immediately show on the screen and will be taken into consideration as new jobs are scheduled.
One process in a route can easily be moved to a convenient date/time, and DynamicsPrint will automatically adjust the corresponding processes.
With an advanced filter, you can look up all jobs with common characteristics to create job batches.
Review the order load for one work center, reschedule according to actual job statuses and generate the work list for each operator or machine.
To get a realistic plan, buffers can be inserted between the various operations, to prevent that operation B starts instantly after operation A is finished. As an example, it will be natural to insert a buffer between the time where the print is finished until cutting or folding is started.
Let DynamicsPrint organize the job sequence most efficiently based on rules and configuration defined by yourself.
Let the system look op jobs with identical specifications for example same paper, the same colors, etc., and a new plan will be presented to you with reduced make-over time and other efficiency benefits. Review the updated plan and modify where it may be needed or approve the DynamicsPrint optimizer plan.
At DynamicsPrint we talk about lifts. A lift we define as an action that directly improves the profit. A suggestion to a lift can be a result of using artificial intelligence or normal algorithms.
We work with lifts in the scheduling module. The scheduling module comes with suggestions for lifts that reduce your cost in your production. You can sort the lifts after size so that you can make the actions with the biggest reduction in cost first.
