Professional Approach to Choosing an APS System

Before making a decision for a planning tool it is essential to precisely map, analyze and document all that is demanded of it. This is a time consuming procedure that requires a lot of experience.

The Asprova AG offers a complete 360° solution that includes...

  • An Initial On-Site Visit, that includes:
    • Factory tour and assessment
    • Live Asprova demonstration
  • A Detailed Follow-Up Analysis, that includes:
    • Data analysis of the scheduling process
    • Discussion and evaluation of problems
    • Reviewing production processes and restrictions
    • Studying item specifications, order specifications, resource capacities and special features
    • Analyting current planning methods and standards
    • Recording planning restrictions
    • Information- and data flow analysis
    • Defining goals and objectives
    • Creating an APS specification sheet

During a follow-up workshop, we are going to present our findings and propose a solution concept, together with an Asprova prototype. Additionally, we are going to provide an APS specification sheet that you may use for comparative evaluation of and between other APS providers.

Because the production scheduling process lies at the core of every manufacturing company, it largely determines overall factory efficiency. Hence, the selection process for an APS system of critical importance.
