Optimisation software for manufacturing: Croakun Production Planner and Scheduler

250 views

Published on

The Croakun Production Planner and Scheduler (PPS) is an integrated scheduling application designed for today’s toughest challenges in manufacturing.

It is part of the Croakun suite of optimisation applications. The Croakun scheduler balances competing goals like costs and delays while respecting limits on capacity, changeover times, and other challenges that make manual scheduling inefficient.

The Croakun PPS aligns production plans with the corporate strategy. Whether the objective is to produce at the lowest cost, maximise production volume, meet specific customer deadlines, or a combination, PPS is able to find the plan that does this.

All of this leads to improved profitability and long-term growth of our customers.
