Production Scheduling - Fitfactory

Deliver every job on-time

The Scheduler makes it easy to improve On-time in Full delivery performance by ensuring you have capacity upfront – even before accepting a job.

  • Firstly, when you’re about to accept a job, you can perform a What-if Analysis in the scheduler to see if you have capacity or not.
  • Next, the system automatically rearranges jobs in production to find the optimal pattern to achieve current and future commitments.
  • Finally, this gives you the information you need to accept, or request a new delivery date; helping you achieve OTIF targets and maintain customer satisfaction.

CAN I PURCHASE YOUR SOFTWARE FOR A ONE-OFF FEE?

Our software is only available on a monthly subscription basis, with a minimum term of 12 months. This model also helps you realise the benefits and achieve ROI more quickly as there’s a lower upfront cost.

IS TRAINING INCLUDED IN THE COST?

The prices listed covers only the subscription cost of the software. We structure this package in this way to help reduce your overall cost. So, rather than inflate our price to cover the cost of training, we allow you to purchase it separately so can purchase as much or as little as you need.

Training is charged daily at a rate of £795/day. Also, for new purchases, we recommend minimum 2 days training.

IS SUPPORT INCLUDED IN THE COST?

Your subscription fee covers everything you need to get up and running, including our minimum recommended 2 days training (more if you’ve got more users). We also run annual refresher courses where anyone can join.

Additional days training are available at £795/day.

IS REPORTING INCLUDED?

We believe that you can only improve what can be measured, so the dashboard comes with powerful built-in reporting to help you analyse information in real-time to improve you factory’s fitness.

DOES IT INTEGRATE WITH OTHER FITFACTORY MODULES?

Absolutely! When combined with other Fitfactory modules, the scheduler automates production planning through to delivery, with full traceability, to drive productivity improvements.

I HAVE AN EXISTING ERP/MRP SYSTEM, WILL THE SCHEDULER INTEGRATE WITH THIS?

Unfortunately, not. The scheduler is perfectly integrated with our fitfactory modules to help you have the best experience possible.

However, this isn’t always the case when we’ve tried to integrate it with 3rd party systems in the past.

If you are really interested in the scheduler, and would consider moving to a Fitfactory system, we’re happy to help you with this transition.
