Transparency in the supply chain
The high-performance realtime APS (advanced planning & scheduling) software wayRTS (Real Time Simulation) assists companies with production planning and control of all value-creation levels. With wayRTS, planning becomes transparent, which allows users to make simple interventions with automatic planning support.
The modeling of production processes and seamless integration and synchronization of other value-creating processes such as in the pre-production phase (design, planning, work preparation) are possible thanks to the flexible, main memory-based data structure of wayRTS. And all this in real time.
The same data structure is used for rough and fine planning, which means that breaks between different planning levels are a thing of the past. This is how wayRTS creates the ideal prerequisite for exploiting business potential in the supply chain: great adherence to schedules and productivity with market-appropriate throughput times and optimal inventories.
Functional Properties and Technical Flow
With the unique linking of any degree of automation, modern visualization, and interactive real-time planning, wayRTS enables production planning according to the whitebox-APS approach : Here the concern is the linking of optimization algorithms to the planner’s knowledge gained from experience, the transparent display of the optimization result, and interactive interventions of the planner in case of critical planning situation. Here, anything is possible, from automated optimization to visual-interactive planning. Regardless of the individual degree of automation, the planning and control work can be reduced in every case.
The functional advantages and basic technologies of wayRTS as APS 4.0 already meet today’s requirements, which companies will encounter again and again on the way top Industrie 4.0.
While the degree of automation lies in your hands.
If different projects access the same resources, wayPRO reveals dependencies and identifies scheduling and capacity conflicts.
With the business intelligence tool wayKPI, companies get an overview of their supply chain’s performance with company-specific KPIs.
The right allocation of resources and capacities determines success. Employees are important, special resources. With the workforce management tool wayWFM, companies can plan the deployment of their personnel efficiently.
With wayCOM, it is possible to control within a company which information flows to which departments and how the documentation should be handled. For individual business events, automatic measures can be specified, which prevents errors in the operational information flow.
