Collaborative planning and scheduling component

In a context where ERP systems keep gaining traction in manufacturing companies, PlannerOne©, ORTEMS' collaborative planning and scheduling component, drives manufacturing performance optimization into the core of ERP solutions.

ORTEMS' effective APS solutions and proven expertise have been widely recognized for more 20 years in the manufacturing world. PlannerOne© is the appropriate, easy-to-implement and cost-efficient response to optimize SMEs' production capabilities.

The fruit of many years of research, PlannerOne© is a revolution in production planning and scheduling. As part of a EUREKA research effort, ORTEMS developed this innovative, pre-built component based on Web Services to maximize the ERP production module.

ERP users benefit from advanced functionality and graphics, and from the ERP's dynamic navigation, real-time production process integration and unified data management capabilities.

A collaborative planning tool

The Web PlannerOne© application is designed natively for a multi-user planning and scheduling process.
The available user profiles are:

  • Planning Users of the PlannerOne© schedule with full access to the advanced planning capabilities,
  • Collaborative Users who can collaborate inside the PlannerOne© schedule thanks to graphical markers, and
  • Viewing Users for unlimited viewing access to the PlannerOne© schedule which offers a single repository for the entire plant.

Why ORTEMS PlannerOne©?

PlannerOne© addresses the requirements for visibility on production flows, lead-time and bottlenecks, and supports quick decision making on production issues (capacity sizing, subcontracting decisions, work order time-shifting, etc.).

PlannerOne© offers ERP users a graphical representation of the plant's production operations and loads, constraint-based finite-capacity scheduling algorithms, interactive planning capabilities and real time integration into the ERP production processes.

Architecture / Integration

The PlannerOne© component was developed using the latest Microsoft technologies under Visual Studio 2010 (framework .NET 4.0).

PlannerOne© is a Web application (Microsoft ASP.NET) that can be used to dynamically navigate across the ERP & PlannerOne© and to integrate context-based diagrams into the ERP views.

The tool offers real-time integration into the production processes via the Web Services (SOA) technology between the ERP and PlannerOne©.

PlannerOne© is installed and administered through the ERP, with a single user management and technical data maintenance tool.

Key benefits

  • Better customer service level
  • Increased productivity through optimized capacity and set-up times
  • Reduced cycle time and inventory
  • Improved responsiveness via the real time integration in the ERP process
All of the above for a low cost of ownership with fast and easy integration of these advanced capabilities.  



  • Constraint-based finite-capacity scheduling
    Multi-criteria scheduling based on elementary manufacturing-specific criteria which can be combined infinitely into complex criteria to meet manufacturing goals and constraints.
  • Optimization of set-up time
    For realistic set-up times and production campaign optimization.
  • Graphical and interactive schedules
    Irrespective of the changes made to the schedule or the ERP, instantaneous synchronization lets PlannerOne© apply the consequences instantaneously and ensure that the schedule remains achievable and consistent with production constraints.
  • Configurable visual markers
    Provide graphical information about a specific constraint on any operation and implement a collaboration process until the problem is solved.
  • Detailed schedule analysis
    Display load at finite or infinite capacity, in order to detect bottlenecks.
  • Take raw material availability into account by integrating with the calculation of net requirements.
  • Simulations in a Work Plan
  • Key performance indicators and analysis of advances/delays
