What is APS?

APS, Advanced Planning and Scheduling, is a scheduling and planning tool that helps manufacturers create and maintain realistic schedules that take into account limited resources and internal constraints. APS helps users reduce production setup times, manage their resources, and provide realistic due dates to customers. The APS tool uses a configurable graphical planner that enables users to plan faster and more efficiently, with views including work orders, resources, utilization and materials. The interactive graphical planner provides a more flexible scheduling ability with drag and drop features that allow users to easily move orders to new work centers.
