Posted by Ute Gillet on Apr 26, 2017 3:16:00 PM

Some weeks ago, I informed you about our having revised the user guide for our visual service planning add-in, the VSS.

Of course, we have also been busy working on our other Gantt chart add-ins for visual scheduling. Next in line for a comprehensive overhaul and updating was the manual of the VPS, our Gantt chart add-in for visual production planning in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Manufacturing Module.

So, let me inform you today about what is new in the VPS manual that can be downloaded from our website as of now. At the same time, I'd like to take the opportunity to recall for you some perhaps small but nevertheless useful features of the VPS.

Better Visual Scheduling in Dynamics NAV literally at Your Fingertips!

Posted by Jake Hostetler on Mar 31, 2017 10:15:32 AM

One of the most underrated and misunderstood aspects of NETRONIC Visual Scheduling in Dynamics NAV is the ability to either drill down or pan out quickly and effectively across large amounts of data. However, only having the ability to move in and out doesn't mean it's going to automatically bring value. The value comes in knowing how to use it.

The focus of this blog post is to break down the ways in which adjusting the resolution of your data effectively changes your perspective, and the amount of relevant data shown. This, in turn, unlocks the vast reservoir of value that lives within your data.

Functionality &User Manual Update: Gantt Add-in For Visual Service Planning in NAV

Posted by Ute Gillet on Mar 29, 2017 4:26:14 PM

Over the past year, a great deal of work went into optimization and enhancement of our Gantt chart add-in for visual service planning in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Service Module, the Visual Service Scheduler (VSS).

Of course, these comprehensive modifications and enhancements also have to be reflected in the add-in's documentation. This is why we have done a profound overhaul of the entire VSS manual, formerly known as "Quick Start Guide". Naturally, with the modifications being so comprehensive, the guide also became more and more extensive, stopped being a mere start-up aid and instead became a "full-grown" manual.

This blogpost wants to inform you about the new manual being available for download on our website as of now while at the same time give you a short review of some of the most important features having been added to the VSS.

If you talk to enough people within a certain industry, do enough presentations, read enough blogs, you begin to draw certain conclusions of the time. My conclusion of the time since joining NETRONIC two years ago has been this: the visual scheduling add-ins we build for Microsoft Dynamics NAV are no longer a 'nice-to-have' for customers, they are a 'must-have.'

Visual Production Scheduler JavaScript for Dynamics NAV: New Features

Posted by Kerstin Sieckmann on Mar 7, 2017 12:11:44 PM


With the Visual Production Scheduler (VPS), a planner working with Microsoft Dynamics NAV gains additional control of the completion of manufacturing orders and the capacity load of the resources. The data from the NAV manufacturing module get visualized in a planning table with different views thus providing the planner with an instrument for manually adjusting and finetuning the schedule in a very agile way. The new functions of the VPS JavaScript for all Microsoft Dynamics Clients (Windows, Web and Tablet) let the planner customize the overview according to his wishes at any time.

Decison Support for Production Scheduling in Dynamics NAV

Posted by Kerstin Sieckmann on Feb 15, 2017 11:20:00 AM

You want to be able to easily reschedule a production order in Microsoft Dynamics NAV? With the Visual Production Scheduler (VPS) add-in you can do this in an easy and agile way by drag & drop. If an order consists of one operation only, it is of course quite easy to move it. If, however, the order consists of many linked operations, rescheduling will become more complex and thus hard to handle if you work with tools that cannot handle linked operations. You’ll have to click one operation after the other and drop it at another position of the timeline. The VPS allows to simplify this procedure by two options. Either, you can move your operation together with all its succeeding operations or you do it the other way round and move it together with all its preceding operations. Watch the video to see this function in action.
