Whether an operation needs a rest time after processing and how long this will be is an important information for the production planner and hence should be visualized in his planning table. In the daily life of manufacturing companies you can find a lot of examples for operations with rest times: After varnishing, a table top has to dry for 24 hours before it can be further worked on. In theory, visualizing rest times in the planning board is very easy: you have to create a node with two layers – the first one visualizing the operation, the second one the rest time. One of our VARCHART XGantt customers recently asked how he could visualize rest times that can also be outside working hours, if, e.g., the drying phase of the paint falls on a weekend. For this, you have to take into account the “Duration field” setting in the Edit Layer dialog for the “Wait Time” in VARCHART XGantt. Click here to learn more:

And though it's only been a month since the last version, also the new one was equipped with lots of handy new features which I'd like to introduce to you in this post. Of course, the Visual Jobs Scheduler is also available in a new version, the enhancements of which I will present in a separate blog post.
Looking for ideas on how to intelligently design graphical planning boards? In my blog series about our Visual Scheduling Add-In Developer Toolbox I not only describe the development background of this product, but also how we use it for our own planning boards for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. In this article you can have a look at functions that we use on a planning board for production scheduling.
