I’m in charge of the Production Management and I’ve been using Direct Planning since 2013.
I needed a planning tool to address every day’s issues on the field. Direct Planning provides a clear and accurate overview of the workload of the production means, together with a high flexibility in the decision-making process. It’s also a very convenient tool to share information with the various functions of the company: thanks to the configurable lists, I’ve created a series of reports which I can share with my co-workers. Workload histograms, production hazards and other stuff may be easily obtained with great precision.
Direct Planning matches your needs, and not the other way around, that’s what makes the strength of our application.
After a little interfacing with our ERP to import the manufacturing orders, productivity has been boosted in the planning stage, while improving the accuracy of the production plan. This precision plays a key role to make the deadlines more reliable, thus to achieve customer satisfaction.
