Does the following sound familiar to you? An important customer calls and places a very urgent order - a so-called "boss order" - which needs to be squeezed in.
If yes, the key questions and problems arising from this are also more than familiar to you: "What will be the impact on the overall schedule? Will it be possible at all or will my nice and smooth schedule which I had until a minute ago will become completely shot up? Will all the other customers will be angry?"
In this situation, your head will be spinning and, let's be honest, the ERP system you're using, mostly leaves you "standing in the rain".
If you are only too familiar with everything I described so far, and your ERP system is Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, I really recommend you read this post where I present a possible solution in the form of our Visual Advanced Production Scheduler (VAPS) - the only available finite capacity scheduler which is built in such a way that it fully integrates with the manufacturing module of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
