Scheduling is indeed a major issue in all manufacturing and project execution facilities world over. It is also
recognized that if scheduling is efficient and automated huge benefits could result as existing resource usage can
be maximized allowing dramatic increase in number of orders processed at the same time substantially reducing
cost of production while ensuring reliability in delivery on the committed date. No wonder scheduling is a hot
research topic and the market is flooded with scheduling systems of sorts. Still a truly efficient and automatic
scheduling system remains an elusive dream.
This white paper lists the six important reasons why a scheduling system fails in real-life situations. It then
describes how a new scheduling system called Talika PMS satisfies all the six critical requirements in detail with real
data supporting the claims from its first major installation.
