Simplify production planning and scheduling with Visual Planner

Lynq’s Visual Planner:
- Cuts through complexity
Planning and scheduling your resources are part and parcel of the manufacturing process. The problem is complexity. You can find the information you need, but arranging, cross-referencing and checking it takes up valuable working hours.
Incomplete production planning and scheduling leads to high operating costs, inefficiency and late orders.
Visual Planner resolves these problems. It cuts the time you spend on planning and scheduling by up to 50%.
- Integrates with your existing systems
You need to simplify production planning and scheduling, but you don't want to replace your existing Macola ES or Progression manufacturing system.
You can integrate Visual Planner with Macola ES or Progression. This means you can extend your ERP investment rather than change it. You get value for money and a fast ROI.
- Matches purchasing with production planning
When you match your purchasing plans with your production plans, you get the best prices for materials and keep your costs down. Visual Planner works closely with MRP.
- Graphical planning in an instant
Visual Planner's graphical planning screen allows you to see all your necessary planning and scheduling information in one place. You get instant data about products, materials, shifts, departments, orders, trial kitting, capacity and work centres.
- Increases your production options
Manufacturing is subject to change. You can use Visual Planner to view your production plans and assess the effects of any adjustments. When new orders are placed, Visual Planner will forecast how this would affect current production and check immediately what resources you have available.
Visual Planner helps you allocate work in the most cost-effective way, and improves the accuracy of your delivery promises, increasing customer satisfaction and your company's reputation.
- Reduces production line down-times
Visual Planner reduces disruption on your production line. Its automatic planning and scheduling makes sure you have the resources where and when you need them – and alerts you to any potential problems before they arise.
With Visual Planner, you optimise your production process. Making the best use of your resources helps cut waste and increases efficiency and productivity.
