What is Scheduling?

Scheduling is deciding in advance when the work will be performed, where it will be performed , what kind of resources will be used and how much they will be used. The scheduling process is usually connected with scheduling systems, policies, techniques, and/or devices. In this context the scheduling process centers around: schedule
  • Time to perform the work,
  • The machine/resource which will perform the work,
  • The number of resources to be applied,
  • Validation work progress versus work scheduled, and
  • Monitoring and reporting.

Customer Quotes


“Significant time can be saved by getting a smooth flow of product through each line. As many products have similar packaging requirements, sequencing these correctly minimises the changes to any line which can cut changeover times dramatically. In a similar way, some products do not present a cross contamination risk so it’s important we identify these and factor this in too.”         - Pharmacuticals Manufacturer, Director

“Despite the difficulties in the beginning, like the work to improve our SAP data quality, after only 3 months after the system went live, we have realized just how powerful the solution is. The results achieved in such a time were higher than we expected. The APS solution delivered a significant stock reduction of more then 20% on average across all products”.
