Customizing the Advanced Planning and Scheduling System

Q: In what ways can the Advanced Planning and Scheduling System be customized?

A: As the section, "Steps in installing the Advanced Planning and Scheduling System" shows, the first thing to do is to build a prototype and then classify the problems that occur into three categories.

●    Problems solvable with Asprova's standard functions

Perform the Advanced Planning and Scheduling System's parameter programming. This is a form of customization.

●    Solvable by how the program is used

Create an operational manual with operating rules that will allow anyone to use the system properly without an error.

●    Solvable by developing peripheral programs and plug-ins.

Develop programs with Visual Basic or C++. This is to be done by someone with knowledge and experience in program development.
