Planning lies at the heart of the success in manufacturing and project management. Only if orders and jobs are accurately planned, it is possible to achieve results expected. Planning enables you to optimize the resources used and eliminate redundancies and material overflow as well as reduce costs.
Production and project schedules are the tools that executives use to control processes and ensure streamlined process flow. By monitoring the deadlines, you are able to respond immediately to deviations and backlogs.
Gant’s graph as a graphical method for the visual presentation of schedules, including project phases, tasks, jobs scheduled on the timeline, enables accurate planning and controlling scheduled milestones. It can be also used to reschedule tasks by adjusting the snap targets on the timeline. Planning and coordinating scheduled actions on the timeline is an important part of building and managing an organization.
With an integrated functionality for Gantt’s chart, Microsoft Dynamics NAV becomes a must-have tool for successful management in all industries. With an overview of task planned, the solution ensures the effective management of processes, both in project- and manufacturing-oriented companies. It reduces manufacturing and project costs by effective planning of available resources and streamlining the process flow. By implementing production and project schedules in their daily management practice, executives are able to fully control the process and eliminate bottle necks and if required to respond quickly to any deviations.
In production companies, based on planned schedules and tasks, you can easily calculate material requirement and prevent material overflow and shortages. With performance charts, the system analyses actual events entered and deviations (such as employee absences, unavailability of materials, insufficient instructions, machinery maintenance, power failures, contractor’s proficiency, holidays, strikes, insufficient competencies of contractors, lack of orders.
