The CRP (Capacity Requirement Planning) environment, integrated in the Fluentis ERP software, allows a careful management of production resources. The planning department operator is able to quickly analyze and identify excess production loads, rather than situations that generate inefficiency, thanks to a tool that associates the planning and production Gantt with the histograms of the capacity of the individual work centers.
This functionality allows the operator to view a series of information in the Gantt relating to the document hierarchy, i.e. production orders, planned or actual production orders up to the detail of the individual production phases. The procedure is interactive so it is possible.
Using the Capacity histograms, the operator can obtain an immediate view of the loads of each active work center within the individual departments. This functionality allows immediate knowledge of any overload or production inefficiency peaks. With a double click within the single capacity bar, it is possible to know in detail the information relating to which work orders commit the center on the specific date selected.
This procedure allows you to freeze the changes that the planner has made during the simulation in the Gantt. In fact, it is possible to save the whole CRM environment in a separate context and resume it later to complete its correct definition; at the end it will be possible to import all the desired changes into the real environment, being able to check at this stage also any anomalies due to changes in the production plan compared to the initial conditions.
The CRP (Capacity Requirements Planning) tool, equipped with specific interactivity, allows the simulation and management of work center loads without interfering with the actual execution and planning activities launched in production. The operator through this procedure has a series of tools that allow him to select individual orders, aggregate them, analyze them in a specific period, rather than for the single work center, can create "snapshots", or simulations stored, and establish the best production organization by interacting with the gantt through "Drag & Drop" operations of orders or individual phases. Once satisfied with the simulation carried out, the operator can easily overturn the displayed result in an actually operational context.
