Title: Win the Battle between Production Planning and Scheduling


Getting production planning and scheduling right oftentimes is seen as the “holy grail” in manufacturing. Both planning and scheduling aim at balancing demand and supply.

However, planning oftentimes is less restrictive whereas scheduling (aka production order and machine sequencing) has to deal with much more restrictions. Consequently, sometimes planning and scheduling tend to work against each other.

This session shows best practices on how to integrate production planning and scheduling within Business Central. From capable-to-promise, over the planning worksheet to finite capacity scheduling.
