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.


There are many more advantages of visualizing production orders and resources in NAV, e.g. by manually extending capacities to shorten the completion time of certain orders.

For more than 20 years, NETRONIC has been engaging in the development of intelligent graphical planning boards, and – among others -  provides Gantt add-ins for production, service, and jobs that are specifically designed for Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
