When capacity planning is powered by printIQ, it’ll be no surprise (or everyone knows) that the end result is both innovative and a completely different take on anything done before.
The Capacity Planner (IQplanner/IQscheduler) module is the latest addition to the growing list of printIQ products. It allows you to see at a glance how your factory is performing and to isolate possible roadblocks well ahead of time. The goal is to deliver real time information to help you run your business at an optimal level and at the same time, allow you to manage by exception.
Schedulers and planners finally have capacity planning done in a way that is easy to use, fast to load and best of all, done in real time. It’s designed by schedulers for schedulers so it’s no surprise that they’ll like using it.
Not only is it an effective way to schedule work, it’s also a great work-to list for production staff. Job information is accessible from the planner which means that your job details are a single click away.
