Insight Works, a leader in the manufacturing and distribution industry vertical for Dynamics 365 Business Central, has announced the availability of its new Graphical Scheduler app for Dynamics 365 Business Central Cloud. Graphical Scheduler is a free app that enables production managers and employees to view and manage production loading more effectively.
Through Graphical Scheduler, users can not only easily visualize exactly what work is scheduled at each workstation, but can also optimize their schedules through a number of premium tasks including drag-and-drop operations, one-click access to details, easy view of associated operations, built-in filter for quickly finding operations and color-coding to identify status of operations.
Through the dragging-and-dropping feature, users can rest easy knowing all related tasks are automatically updated to reflect a new production schedule – all as jobs are moved to different time slots on work or machine centers. Clicking on an operation displays job details including the production order number, routing number, descriptions and more; highlighting a single operation, meanwhile, will automatically identify all related operations to easily provide a complete picture – all within a single screen.
Graphical Scheduler’s built-in filter enables users to quickly identify specific operations, such as filtering for keywords like “wheel” or filtering on a production order number displays only related operations. Lastly, users can take advantage of color-coding to identify the status of an operation, making it easier to identify the specific state of jobs.
“With Graphical Scheduler from Insight Works, users can easily visualize exactly what work is scheduled at each workstation, ultimately allowing both employees and production managers to manage and view production loading more effectively,” says Brian Neufeld, Director of Marketing for Insight Works. “Now, getting the details of a particular operation is as easy as highlighting the operation, while features like color-coding allows jobs to be linked to a specific color if, for example, the jobs have passed their start time or date and have not yet begun.
“Of course, customers and interested parties can always visit our website to learn more about Graphical Scheduler, or, if they’re ready to get started, visit Microsoft AppSource to install the app.”
