Recent Entries：Role of the Production Scheduler in a World Recession
November 6, 2008 10:27 AM
The manufacturing industry has greatly dropped to a shadow of poor achievements. It all started from the start of the American subprime loan problem and the influence of the world wide recession. In such a market environment, we are the maker of the No.1 production scheduler Asprova APS, which is centered around the Chinese manufacturing market.
We took two measures to reward our customers in the manufacturing industry who have helped us become successful. One of them is the release of the Asprova Light product, where we implemented only the necessary functionality for manufacturing and created an entry level product. While realizing a beneficial effect with little investment early on, the customer can still add additional functionality later on. Secondly, the Asprova KPI function is a tool for preparing long-term business plans. When factories use Asprova KPI ,in addition to optimized delivery date and production efficiency, you can also achieve the aim of cost price reduction too. You can produce faster and cheaper results.
While we recognize this to be the role of the production scheduler in the time of recession, we continue to persevere with the development of our product everyday. By all means, download the free trial version of Asprova APS from our homepage. We are looking forward to hearing about your requirements and opinions.
