Visual Scheduling Tips & Tricks

The structure of the VPS

Since the VPS is a Gantt chart, it naturally has all its characteristics:

  • A timescale at the top.
  • A table displaying either production orders (in the Production Order view) or work/machine centers (in the Capacities View) at the left.
  • On the right below the time scale, the chart displaying the production orders and their production order lines as bars.
  • A calendar in the background of the Gantt chart: non-working times are highlighted in grey, working times in white. The bars of the operations are colored during working times and just white during non-working times.
