Production Scheduling System Asprova

Production Scheduling System Asprova goes beyond the traditional concept of older production schedulers by supporting long term, mid-term and short term planning to cover sales, production and purchasing. Asprova as a traditional production scheduler only provided short term scheduling for production processes.

With Asprova APS, however, we have further expanded upon these production scheduler features. Through long term scheduling, Asprova APS develops annual business plans and performs 3-month production planning, which will be followed by synchronized short term planning to provide an environment similar to actual business operations. Moreover, by enabling scheduling of sales and purchasing in addition to production, Asprova APS produces greater effectiveness in terms of reducing both total lead-time and inventory.

Asprova's Scheduling Capabilities

Production Scheduling System Asprova is a production scheduler that creates production schedules at high speed for multiple items and multiple processes, whilst linking each segment of the factory's supply chain, sales, manufacturing, and purchasing. It is capable of simultaneously considering the capacities of individual machines and workers to produce realistically executable work instructions with accuracy measurable in seconds. Asprova enables manufacturers to realize visual management by creating high-precision schedules for several months into the future, and facilitates profit increase by shortening lead times, reducing inventory, and increasing on-time deliveries.

The current generation of the Production Scheduling System Asprova, Asprova APS, is even faster than its predecessor Asprova Ver9, four times as fast when scheduling 100,000 operations. This speed enables you to shorten your planning cycle so as to be able to quickly confirm the latest state of the shop floor as it changes from moment to moment.

Abundant GUI Features

Production Scheduling System Asprova enables visual management by displaying the results of scheduling graphically on the screen in the form of a Gantt chart. You can see at a glance the schedule stretching from the current state of the shop floor to several months in the future, making possible quick and accurate delivery date quotations. Furthermore, by monitoring the future schedule, you can take necessary measures ahead of time to prevent late deliveries. Visually identifying bottleneck resources also enables you to increase overall throughput, whilst monitoring the load on equipment enables you to improve the efficiency of your capital investments by determining the optimal plan for increasing production capacity.
