Production Scheduling

Production Scheduling

Imagine how much more efficient your organization would be if you could see at a glance all open work orders and the effect they have on your capacity to produce by work center, by department, by team, even down to the machine level. There would be no more guess work on when a job can start or when you can tell your customers their order will ship.   

Fitrix Production Scheduling gives you the tools to maximize efficiency while reducing costs. You can view at a glance which resources are being under or over utilized and can adjust your production accordingly to balance the load. As new orders are placed or existing order due dates change, you can see real time the effect on your production capacity. The application also provides recommendations to changes in order due dates based on the work remaining to be done.
