Scheduling with ORBIS MES Planning Tool

ORBIS MES planning tool

Optimized scheduling and sequence planning

The ORBIS planning tool allows backlog-free planning of each manufacturing area and therefore enhances transparency in the order and schedule structure in the long term. With the solution fully integrated in SAP ERP, orders are planned in consideration of required and available resources such as machines, materials, personnel and tools. By storing and monitoring the delivery dates, the system gives early warnings in the event of an imminent delay in delivery. This makes it possible to simulate different solution alternatives and to realize the best of them.

All the relevant data for the planning processes is centrally and clearly bundled in a cockpit; the processes can be carried out quickly thanks to short dialog response times. Production employees know on a daily basis when and in which order the production orders are to be processed.
