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