Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) solution does the planning taking into both finite material and capacity constraints simultaneously.
This will provide you visibility of how customer orders are affected based on material delay, cycle time variation, material rejection or machine breakdown. Planvisage provides APS solution which is complimentary to your existing ERP solution like SAP or Oracle and Microsoft Dynamics. It pulls required data from ERP like BOM, Routing, Inventory and WIP and does the constraint based planning. The output of the result is sent back to ERP for execution.
