Production Scheduler

Tool for optimization of manufacturing plans

Functionalities of the Production Scheduler module

  • Constraint-based finite-capacity scheduling

Multi-criteria scheduling dedicated to manufacturing objectives and constraints.

  • Optimization of setup times

For realistic setup times and production campaign optimization.

  • Graphical and interactive schedules

Whatever the modifications in the planning or in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, PlannerOne©subsequently applies the changes thanks to a real time synchronization of the planning. The latter guarantees a planning in accordance with manufacturing constraints.

  • Configurable visual markers

Provide graphical information about a specific constraint on any operation and implement a collaboration process until the problem is solved.

  • Detailed schedule analysis

Display the load at finite or infinite capacity to detect production bottlenecks.

  • Take raw material availability into account

By integrating with MRP calculation.

  • Simulations in a Work Plan
  • Key performance indicators and analysis of advances/delays.
  • Customized navigation links

Towards Microsoft Dynamics NAV or other applications (planning display or pictures of pieces for example)

Resource Planner

Tool for project resources management

Functionalities of the Resource Planner module

  • Job graphical planning

Automatic planning of all job activities in the Job Planner view, or manual planning in the Gantt Chart view for individual or periodic activities.

  • Multi-job resources allocation and resources booking

Easy replanning by drag & drop, with a warning in case of capacity issue. This can be applied to the minute, hour or day bucket, and on an horizon of several weeks or months.

  • Detailed analysis of resources loads

By integrating the resources capacity defined in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, the load diagram allows resources load rate analysis and projected invoicing, based on job planning line prices.

  • Configurable visual markers

Provide graphical information about a specific constraint on any activity and implement a collaboration process between the various job stakeholders.

  • Jobs advances / delays analysis
  • Simulations in a Work Plan
  • Customized navigation links

Towards Microsoft Dynamics NAV or other applications (for a display of the customers address in Bing Map for example).

  • Access planning through Internet Explorer or Microsoft Outlook

The Windows (RTC) client can be used to customize the interface for users based on their roles in the company. PlannerOne© for Microsoft Dynamics NAV respects this RoleTailored logic by giving all ERP users –based on their position– access to:

  • Different views of lead-times and bottlenecks to support quick decision-making on production issues (capacity sizing, subcontracting decisions, work order time-shifting, etc...).
  • Interactive planning capabilities and constraintbased finite-capacity scheduling algorithms that are integrated in real-time with Microsoft Dynamics NAV production process.

For example, a sales representative can display the schedule tab on an order screen and view the end date of the work order related to this order.

Schedulers and planners are the main users of this component. They have access to several views:

  • Resource / Production Order Gantt charts
  • Load chart
  • Resource Sequence list

Resource Planner

Add resource effectiveness and interactive planning

Why PlannerOne Resource Planner

PlannerOne Resource Planner for Microsoft Dynamics NAV is the revolutionary planning solution dedicaded to all services companies. Microsoft Dynamics NAV users will access the best planning capabilities in real time, in a single click and at the best price / performance ratio of APS software on the market.

A collaborative planning tool

The PlannerOne for Microsoft Dynamics NAV application is natively designed for a multi-user planning and scheduling process. The Windows client (RTC) can be used to customize the interface for users based on their roles in the company. Project managers can jointly identify available resources, allocate them to their jobs and change the planning in terms of job and resource unavailabilities any time during the day. When visiting a client, each person (resource) will have a real-time access on his planning in a Calendar view thanks to PlannerOne© Resource Planner via Internet Explorer. A sales representative can analyze the job planning for his clients. Management will be able to foresee the loads and capacities of the various resource groups and therefore forecast invoicing of coming weeks and months.


The Resource Gantt chart displays one line per resource, and all activities that are allocated to this resource in time. On this view, you’ll also find the Indicators and Details panel which is useful to follow the KPI and know more about the project the task and the activity selected.


The Job Planner is your dashboard, it gives the state of all projects with the percentage of planned Job Planning Lines, percentage of completion of activities.
