Integrating with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Integration with shop floor data

The VAPS lets planners see the impact on their schedule if unexpected incidents happen on the shop floor.

Customers need and want to update their schedule based on actual data and if unexpected incidents happen on the shop floor, they want to quickly see the impact on the schedule. This is exactly what the new functionality offers. For easy and comfortable use, we implemented the following features:

  • Capability to load recent shop floor data (capacity ledger entries) into the simulation

  • Special color mode "Shop Floor Status View" to highlight deviations between actuals and schedule

  • Option to (automatically) update the schedule based on actuals, either via the "Actions" menu or via the context menu

    • information from capacity ledger entries gets written into the production order routing lines

  • Vertical line indicating when the last “update according to actuals” was made
