In Enterprise 21, production schedules, consisting of a series of work orders, can be created manually and generated automatically. To generate the tentative production schedule, organizations establish a master production calendar which defines hours of operation by day and shift and the associated labor pool that will be available during those times.

Through the MRP process, tentative production scheduling is capacity-constrained, and is generated based on material, machine, and labor availability. The tentative production schedule can be reviewed by manufacturing planners and changed as desired. The tentative production schedule’s suggested work orders can be rescheduled and resequenced. The tentative production schedule can then be converted in part or in whole to the final production schedule. Both the tentative and final production schedules can be viewed in either a graphical or tabular format by machine, process, or entire facility.

As the business day transpires, the graphical view of the final production schedule updates with color-coded alerts, highlighting issues that may occur based on delayed and out-of-spec production process rates. The final production schedule’s associated work orders are used on the shop floor for production reporting purposes.
