One of the benefits from this Finnish solution is rapid rescheduling of a complete manufacturing chain. The time spent in rescheduling is reduced from hours to minutes. You can, for example, choose when an order has to be ready and the scheduling software calculates automatically when a work stage has to begin at the latest.

Other benefits are easy integrability with ERP systems and fast implementation - it can be done very quickly and is cost effective. Experienced customers may roll-out the software with their own work force.

Delfoi Planner is easy to use, web-based, visual Production Scheduling solution with a shop floorr execution and data collection functionality.

With Delfoi Planner APS users are able to plan and schedule complex supply chains with multiple plants (multi-site planning) with ease. It's scalability makes it well suited also for small job shops. Our program is made for the users. It's user experience represent best-in-class. It is easy to use and reduces scheduling time from several hours to just few minutes.

Web-based Production Planning and Scheduling.
Delfoi Planner is a transparent, web-based Production Planning and Scheduling (APS) software which uniquely includes also Manufacturing Execution System (MES) functionalities. It is well suited for Human Centric Operations for manufacturing, service and maintenance operations. It can be easily integrated into ERP systems using robust and proven interfaces. For a scheduler the most significant benefits are drastically reduced scheduling time and ease of use. Compared to legacy systems, like MS Excel, a new plan is ready in minutes instead of hours. This solution will reduce lead times dramatically, minimize work in progress and improve accuracy of delivery. The cloud-based solution is extremely simple to deploy. It enhances scheduling transparency between productional units (multi-site), sales departments and other interest groups of the company - globally.

Customer case (heavy equipment OEM, assembly-to-order production), ROI results:
  • Lead time degreased by 50%;
  • Work in progress degreased by 50%;
  • Delivery accuracy increased from 75% to over 90% without time and material 'buckets'.

Program enables transparent, shareable scheduling and control of complex manufacturing supply chains with multiple sites, starting from component manufacturing and ending to the final assembly. It doesn't matter if the production units are situated far from one another, all changes are instantly rescheduled through the entire chain from subcontractor or component factory to OEM. Production status as well as quantities and quality issues for instance, are monitored from remote operation in real time.

SOP module enables flexible and transparent forecasting scheduling between sales and production. Unique to our solution is that demand and rough cut capacity planning and production scheduling are all combined within the same program.
