Finite Capacity Scheduling Instruments

Drag & Drop

Operations can easily be scheduled and rescheduled interactively by drag & drop considering the rules of finite capacity scheduling

Change timing of operation

If you  move an operation horizontally along the time scale you'll change the timing. While moving the operation, a “phantom” bar will remain at the original place until the mouse gets released.

Change resource of operation

If you move an operation vertically you can change the machine center where the operation is to be worked upon. While moving the operation, a “phantom” bar will remain at the original place until the mouse gets released.

The underlying principles of drag&drop

  • The sequence on a machine can be changed.
  • Can have an impact on other machines (as successors might get moved).
  • We do not allow you to violate the routing structure (exception: if
    operations are pinned)
    • predecessors will never be impacted
    • right move -> successors will get moved
    • left move ->  successors will not get moved
