As manufacturers are forced to adapt to ever changing market conditions, it’s imperative that their existing systems can adapt as needed to support the company’s competitive edge. Resource Manager has added new features to support these ‘changes on-demand’ requirements.

Production Scheduling

Resource Manager

According to Scott McNeil, Maser Production Scheduler for Technical Glass Products "It is so refreshing they don’t have a one-size-fits-all-approach and really listen to what we want to do and are able to deliver quickly and easily.”

In contrast to rigid systems for which customers must change their processes to adapt to the software or to custom solutions with high price tags and risk, Resource Manager is flexible, intuitive, and simple to use so the customer can achieve their production scheduling goals with a minimum number of transactions. The product easily integrates with all systems and features built-in options to fit the product exactly to each customer’s unique needs, either at initial implementation or or thereafter.

New Advanced Planning and Scheduling and Adaption Features
Resource Manager now features: alternate routings and work centers, batch processing, automatic optimization, multiple constraints, skill level scheduling, and detailed work center and workforce calendars that can be adjusted at any time. Now, inevitable labor fluctuations, work center downtime, and unexpected material shortages can be accounted for automatically with data integration or drag-and-drop adjustment, allowing the user to regenerate a schedule with new priorities on demand. Real-time Resource Calendar reports include: Load Utilization, Backlogs, Work center Bottleneck Analysis, Capacity Pockets, and more. In addition, their special dynamic Reconfiguration allows the user to easily and quickly reconfigure scheduled production, on-the-fly, to reflect reality.

Doing it the Customer’s Way
According to Scott McNeil, Master Production Scheduler for Technical Glass Products out of Snoqualmie, WA, “While we have been successfully using Resource Manager for Production Scheduling for a number of years, we find our business model is constantly being tweaked to best support various departments.    Normally, this can stress existing systems and you have to force new initiatives manually since you can’t easily change existing systems. This is not the case with Resource Manager and User Solutions. It seems they are able, willing, and excel at quickly and affordably adapting Resource Manager to accommodate new directives. It is so refreshing they don’t have a one-size-fits-all-approach and really listen to what we want to do and are able to deliver quickly and easily.”

Affordable and Compatible
A single user version is $5,000-$10,000. A multi-user version is twice the single user version price. Resource Manager runs with Windows and uses Excel for reports. Resource Manager, features a unique design that quickly and easily adapts to existing operations. Resource Manager is the first tool that can be utilized by small companies with no formal systems in place, as well as by larger companies with installed ERP Systems.
