Advanced Planning & Scheduling  

Make a Promise, Keep a Promise 

Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) provides an broad array of tools to help you consistently and cost-effectively meet customer order due dates while optimizing your material and production plans. APS' lean planning and scheduling processes concurrently synchronize material and capacity to customer orders while minimizing operational overhead. As an integral piece of our ERP system, APS puts customer orders at the center of your business model. Synchronizing all the factory's various demands with materials and capacity constraints lets you obtain precise promise dates for all customer orders and know you can meet those dates.


Unlike older planning software, APS combines capacity planning with material planning, alerting you when orders and replenishments will be late, and synchronizing your plan to your customers' demands.  APS is a predictive tool that will tell you what problems are coming in the future, giving you time to react and still meet your plan.  APS plans each demand individually, from top to bottom in a single pass, taking your priority demands first to ensure your promises are kept.  You have complete visibility into every plan that APS creates and how it will be fulfilled. 

APS integrates all key production elements - on hand inventory, supply, production capacity, routings, and resource availability - into a near-term, real-time planning and execution tool. APS is a strategic weapon in your efforts to improve competitiveness, profitability, productivity and customer satisfaction. It dynamically synchronizes the flow of materials and the use of resources (machines, personnel, tooling, fixtures, etc.) throughout the entire system so you can match promises to actual delivery dates.

"I am the on-site admin and have worked with Syteline/CSI for 20 years (version 4.0 through 9.02).

"All aspects of the ERP environment have been considered. Perhaps the greatest asset of the tool is the APS functionality. Projecting accurate capable to ship dates to customers in a manufacturing environment is crucial. This tool exceeds all expectations! With accurate BOM, Routing and Inventory Control, the APS system precisely plans and executes for fast-paced environments to assure customer satisfaction. Developing and modifying existing reports is also a great asset to the software. Information that is needed is accessible and informative to make critical business decisions. Modifying the forms, reports and creating new objects is also straight forward."
