Production Planning & Scheduling

Machinery & Equipment Industries

The ability for Opcenter APS (formerly Preactor) to generate a schedule, based on deep bills of material whereby parts, sub-assemblies and final assemblies are often generated as individual purchase and manufacturing orders, is critical for this sector. So called “pegging” of producing and consuming orders provides an accurate representation of finite scheduling of the manufacture and assembly of machines and equipment.

Opcenter integrates with your existing ERP and enables the Planner.
