Achieve delivery targets effortlessly

With multiple machines and new jobs coming in, it can difficult to know how to best organise your resources to optimal production scheduling. The Fitfactory Scheduler intelligently plans in jobs according to live capacity availability to optimise resources and plan production to achieve delivery efficiencies and cost targets, effortlessly.

Production Scheduling - Fitfactory

Deliver every job on-time

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.

The system automatically rearranges jobs in production to find the optimal pattern to achieve current and future commitments. 

This gives you the information you need to accept, or request a new delivery date; helping you achieve OTIF targets and maintain customer satisfaction.

“The scheduler is by no means bullet-proof – but it is very, very close! It has made a massive impact to our business. The technical staff have been hugely helpful in getting us using the system to its fullest extent and tailoring it to our work processes.”

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

Unfortunately, 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.
