Nineteen VAPS certified partners and counting

The Visual Advanced Production Scheduler, which you already might know as VAPS was a product we started working on around middle of 2019 in collaboration with our friends from TecMan from the UK.

The VAPS is the first finite capacity visual scheduler fully integrated into Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Although both products work with Business Central’s manufacturing module, they are still quite different.

The summer has arrived and who would have thought that the situation is still as exceptional as it is - I hope you are all well!

At NETRONIC we are all still working from home and - what can I say - everything runs smoothly and effectively as it has been during the last three months.

So - on time like a clockwork and sticking to our promise - we released version 1.7 of both the Visual Production Scheduler (VPS) and the Visual Jobs Scheduler (VJS). While the focus of version 1.6 was mainly on streamlining the products and improving the user experience, the new version now offers a couple of handy new features.  

As always, the complete release information can be found in the respective notes for VPS and VJS. Moreover, both new versions will be  available in AppSource soon.

Of course, we didn't rest on our laurels (as tempting as it might have been, what with the lots of positive feedback we got from you ;-)) but have been busy developing and implementing a couple of handy new features for you, and, of course, fix some bugs. And by the way: there is more to come rather shortly ...

Enjoy reading!

We’ve repeatedly heard planners asking for the best way to evaluate the impact on squeezing a rush order into the published schedule. Or wondering how to accelerate the rescheduling process of production orders when a machine breaks down, or an operation takes longer than expected.
