Scheduling Logic

  • Shift and Calendar – In this article, we will show how to register and change the working time and day in Asprova – setting up shift and calendar and assigning resources based on the calendar.
  • Command – The Scheduling parameters determine the processing that takes place when rescheduling is run and this is made up of Commands. In this article, we will explain how commands define different kinds of data processing thru the contents of default scheduling parameter.
  • Parameter – In Asprova, settings of scheduling parameters can be changed with regards to rescheduling. This article will explain parameters that can be adjusted to get order of assignment, assignment direction and resource evaluation
  • Status – Represents which state each operation is in. This article will explain how to fix operations and set status as Released, Frozen, or Completed and how to input results after adjustment.
  • Resource Quantity – The resource quantity can be used if you want a resource that can process multiple operations all at the same time. In this article, we will show you how this process is done to be able to shorten production time.
  • Furnace Resource – The furnace resource is a resource where multiple operations start and finish at the same time. This can only happen when all of the specs of the operations are set up the same. In this article, we will show how to schedule the resources with the batch processing capabilities.
  • Sub Resource – Sub resources can be set as jig tools, molds or workers. They can be assigned the same time with the main resource or to the set up time. This article will explain how to generate a schedule with the sub resource workers.
  • Setup Time (ItemSpec) – In addition to the Setup time settings specified in the Integrated Master Editor, it is also possible to register the setup time according to the items and related specs. In this article, we will show how to schedule the setup time when items and specs are switched.
  • Setup Time (Resource) – In Asprova, it is also possible to schedule the setup time for changing molds and jig tools. This can be specified in the Integrated Master Editor. This article will show you how to generate a schedule setup by switching the main resource and the sub-resource.
  • Material Requirement Calculation – In Asprova, the required quantity of items can be calculated and the input time from the manufacturing time to setup time can be moved. This article will explain how to register the requirement and time settings.
  • Material Requirement Calculation (Yield, Scrap) – In Asprova, you can also take into consideration the yield and scrap when calculating the material requirement. This article will show you how to calculate the requirement when taking yield and scrap into account.
  • Time Constraint – In this article, we will study the time constraint by which we can specify how to connect the previous operation with the current one given the time delays for each resource and item.
  • Operation Split –  Operation split can divide and assign operations based on the lot size. By doing this, a schedule in which two or more pieces of equipment that will work in parallel can be generated. In this sample, we will show how to assign the operations by equipment of lot size.
  • Safety Stock Inventory MIN – Safety stock is used as an extra stock that is maintained in order to prevent stock outs. In Asprova, the order will be generated automatically to prevent from falling below the safety stock value.
  • Auto-Replenishment – In any material requirement calculation, Asprova can check the inventory of a raw material and parts and generate automatic replenishment orders when needed. This article will show you the two ways of generating replenishment orders.
  • Inventory Constraint –  If you want to be able to know which and when the inventory of an item is about to run out, Inventory Constraint function should be set up. In this article, we will study how this is done in Asprova.
  • Branched Process – Branching process function in Asprova allows you to branch a process in the middle of the production process. In this article, we will study how to use branching to schedule processes.
