Scheduling

The ultimate tool to organize your production the most efficient way

Whether you want to schedule on a very rough basis or 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 speedy and sophisticated way by moving a process and, with one keystroke, rescheduling 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.

Scheduling

Deadlines

A simple plan can be created with deadlines. A deadline is a predefined date for which an activity or action is supposed to occur, such as receiving the material, proofs, or delivery.

Gross plan

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 an overloaded capacity or lack of materials to complete the job. The text for warnings is user-configurable, using a language 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 and adjusted with an efficiency percentage for each machine.

Gantt chart

The DynamicsPrint Gantt chart gives you a real-time graphical production overview.

The friendly and easy-to-understand Gantt chart timeline is the quickest and most practical 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 considered as new jobs are scheduled.

Reschedule

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.

Fine plan

Review the order load for one work center, reschedule according to actual job statuses and generate the work list for each operator or machine.

Buffers

To get a realistic plan, buffers can be inserted between the various operations to prevent operation B starts instantly after operation A is finished. For example, it will be natural to insert a buffer between when the print is finished and until cutting or folding is started.

Hyperautomation

Could you let DynamicsPrint organize the job sequence most efficiently based on the configurations defined by yourself?

Let the system look up jobs with identical specifications, for example, the same paper, colors, etc., and a new plan will be presented to you with reduced make-over time and other efficiency benefits. Review the updated schedule and modify where it may be needed or approve the DynamicsPrint optimizer plan.

Decision Intelligence

At DynamicsPrint, we talk about lifts. A lift we define as an action that directly improves the profit. A suggestion for a lift can result from using artificial intelligence or regular algorithms.

We work with lifts in the scheduling module. The scheduling module has suggestions for lifts that reduce your cost in your production. You can sort the lifts after size to take the actions with the most significant cost reduction first.
