Scheduling and Tracking Software

Scheduling and Tracking Software is easily one of the most powerful tools available for capacity planning for any manufacturing environment.


The Advanced Planning and Scheduling modules fit together to provide the most comprehensive Scheduling and Tracking Software available to small and midsize manufacturers. If you’re determined to maximize the resource capacity of your facility, this robust master schedule application will exceed your needs.


Advanced planning and scheduling knows the demands in your manufacturing facility and takes into consideration any constraints that apply to resources, the facility, materials, and work centers. Being able to adapt to an ever-changing environment is key and should happen automatically. SMARTer Manager’s Auto Pilot for Advanced planning and scheduling simultaneously considers demand, resource capacity, labor, and availability of materials.

With smart Capacity Planning and Scheduling software, anything you want to schedule can be scheduled. Simply define it as a resource: machines, tooling, molds, even people. Every resource has a unique capacity calendar. This allows you to schedule maintenance, make short-term capacity changes such as evening or weekend work, or instantly react to unexpected problems. If a machine fails, a single change in its capacity calendar produces an immediate and corrective impact on jobs scheduled for that machine, that’s a smart constraint.

Tracking jobs through your manufacturing and production process is critical for on-time deliveries and satisfied customers and tracking it in real-time is a necessity. Using bar-coded Shop Travelers, employees scan on and off each operation, recording quantity built and scrapped making it easy to record and track waste. You’ll know instantly where the job is and whether it’s on-time or if there’s a bottleneck to be cleared.

With a capacity and demand driven master scheduler, real-time job tracking eliminates manual time card entry, provides you with ‘up to the minute’ work in process, and immediate job costing.
