of schedule,
always in order.

Advanced Planning and Scheduling solutions orchestrate your manufacturing processes to stay one step ahead of production capacities, customer demands, and unexpected changes.


Long-Term Planning

Make informed strategic decisions on the enterprise level and rest assured that every
resource —be it time, materials, or labour— is used in the best possible way for weeks or months in advance.


Detailed Scheduling

Dramatically improve your
manufacturing efficiency using intelligent built-in rules, realistic work-order schedules, and advanced multi-constraint algorithms—all while maintaining complete visibility and transparency.


Seamless Integration

Connect your planning and scheduling software with a wide variety of business and production systems to use all the available data on any scale for the best possible vertically coherent and advantageous business decisions.

01 Visibility

Strive for excellence.



Planning effectively means making decisions for the future, where you need to see the outcomes in crystal clear detail every step of the way. Since improper tools like spreadsheets can easily be misleading, Opcenter APS shows you the information you need to see from all possible viewpoints. With the big picture, you can identify issues before they arise, implement changes, see their impact, and be certain in the outcomes of your decisions.


If you need to see it to believe it, we have seen it time and time again in our fifteen years of implementing planning and scheduling solutions. We have worked with a wide variety of clients that had a wide variety of different needs, data they want to see, challenges they want to solve and rules they need to use. Our team of experts is well versed in guiding you to find a tailor-made solution that fits your specific needs.

02 Scalability



Opcenter APS is not a single point solution. It is a family of products. As your needs grow with the your business growth, it is important to stay a step ahead by having the right tool for the job at any level. Opcenter Scheduling comes in Standard, Professional, and Ultimate versions, whereas Opcenter Planning only has one level – Ultimate. The different levels of functionality allow you to select the system that satisfies both, your needs and your budget.


The good news is that all the information you need to make the optimal decision is already in your hands. We recommend a pilot project using your ERP data to give you a clear overview of how things could look like and how your everyday challenges could be solved. With this added insight into your production planning and scheduling process, we can find the solution that is right for you.

03 What-if Analysis


What-if Analysis

The planner’s job is not an easy one. Urgent orders, delivery delays of raw materials, scrap, rework, and resource breakdown can have a devastating impact on efficiency and promise dates. In a demand driven company where customer service must be maintained, cost reduced, and resource utilization maximized, just the use of ERP systems, spreadsheets, and wallboards is not enough. Opcenter APS provides all the tools you need to analyse the challenges and test alternate scenarios to overcome them.


With the help of our highly experienced engineers, you will learn how to do the what-if-analysis for your specific needs during the implementation phase already. This ensures you will be prepared well in advance before the system goes live.

01Production Planning

Strategic Decision Support Tool

Opcenter Planning is a strategic decision tool designed to help with long- and mid-term planning. It considers forecasts and long-term orders, supports decision making about the feasibility and impacts the general manufacturing direction. Opcenter Planning supports major production capacity decisions surrounding workforce expansion, resource capacity, and factories. It helps determine what and how much to make, where and when to make it, and exactly what materials and resources are required.

Opcenter Planning can be integrated with many different ERP systems. The integration can range from simple file transfer to database structures and web services. We have successfully integrated Opcenter Scheduling with both global industry standard ERP systems and ones specific to local markets.

Key Functionalities


Make-To-Order Planning

In a make-to-order environment, stock levels of finished and intermediate items will not be part of the key process parameters, but you will still need to evaluate the effects of future demand changes on the manufacturing process.


Make-To-Stock Planning

In a make-to-stock environment, you can generate accurate and achievable Master Production Schedules (MPS) considering rough cut capacity, pack forward figures, target days of stock cover, manufacturing preferences, and other.


BoM Level Planning

BoM can be exploded, and then the production plan for lower-level items is calculated in the same way. Based on the BoM explosion and the production plan, proposed material purchase requirements can be exported to an ERP.


Interactive Schedule Visualization

Master Production Schedule (MPS) data can be displayed as stock profile graphs and capacity usage graphs. The MPS can be changed with simple click and drag function in a graph and the production will be moved from one period to another.

02Production Scheduling

Tactical Decision Support Tool

Opcenter Scheduling is a is an interactive, multi-constraint scheduling system that provides support for decision-making for overtime, order prioritization, production batches, due date negotiation and order processing. It gives greater visibility and control, which enables you to increase resource utilization and on-time delivery while reducing inventory levels and waste.

Opcenter Scheduling is compatible with all major ERP and MES systems, as well as allowing for integration with more specific and customised systems using industry standard protocols. We are experienced in all forms of integration, from simple file transfer to database structures and web services.

Key Functionalities


Planning Efficiency Measurement

Opcenter Scheduling provides a set of standard and custom reports and graphical KPIs. Different levels of aggregation such as resource, work center, shop floor, and plant-level are available.


Order Enquiry (CTP)

Where a multi-level BoM and sub-assemblies exist, Opcenter Scheduling will leverage the routing and BoM explosion features, allowing for orders to be created for all the required items which are currently in a shortage state.


Material Constraint

Opcenter Scheduling allows you to connect orders together so it can consider real constraints and unexpected delays automatically. It ensures that only when materials are available can the consuming orders connect with them.


Sequencing Optimization

Opcenter Scheduling has enhanced functionality to deal with complex scheduling problems. It offers additional optimizations rules that can be further customized for each and every application.
