Gantt chart Tip: How to visualize rest times with VARCHART XGantt

Posted by Alfred Göhlich on Nov 19, 2019 10:54:15 AM

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:

Posted by Martin Karlowitsch on Oct 29, 2019 10:53:44 AM

Some days ago, I attended Directions EMEA in Vienna - the annual gathering of many Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central partners. It took me a while to digest my impressions, and summarize my key take-aways. Other than many other Directions EMEA reflections that I read and enjoyed, mine is less product-centric, less tech-centric, but more business model-centric.
