Production scheduling based on material availability information

Posted by Ute Gillet on Mar 14, 2023 8:39:55 AM

The Visual Advanced Production Scheduler (VAPS), comes with functionality for production scheduling based on material availability information. Given the fact that Business Central does not offer material availability information on the production order level, this functionality is a topic of great interest. It does not only often come up during customer demos but people also told us that if they had known about it earlier, they probably would have decided earlier for the VAPS. So, our CEO Martin thought it would be good to share the educational material he initially had created for training purposes in a public webinar that he hosted some weeks ago.
