Advanced planning and scheduling (APS)

PSIasm is an innovative APS class system combining real-time scheduling with production tracking functionality.

  • Contrary to other solutions available on the market, in its schedules PSIasm system takes into account current production data.

  • Significantly helps production process optimization. 

  • Indispensable for ‘production-to-order’ cases and with frequently changing production plans.

Production scheduling and tracking

Reduce production cost by even 20%

  • Create schedules in real time and update them every minute

  • Create alternative production scenarios to select the one which ensures best use of production resources

  • Improve your ratio of orders delivered on time and be the leader in customer service

Dynamic production schedules

Dynamic schedule

With PSIasm several planners can create production schedules in real time and at the same time, which enables them to tailor the schedule as required while orders are taken in.

Best planning decisions

Optimal decisions

Make the best planning decisions thanks to accurate information about production progress and resource availability.

Get rid of bottlenecks

Get rid of bottlenecks

With data visualization you can easily identify bottlenecks and eliminate them in the production process.

Rapid response to the situation in a shop floor

Rapid response

PSIasm shows the situation in a shop floor, while with automatic messages a production schedule can be quickly updated, should an unplanned production event take place.

Production costs reduction

Production costs reduction

Reduce the costs of semi-manufactured goods, inventories and finished goods by using PSIasm system’s optimization algorithms.

Use the full potential of the plant

Production potential

Use the full potential of the plant to produce more in the same time.

Interactive Planning Dashboard

PSIasm visualizes production resources and their availability in the form of a Gantt chart, showing current production plan and completed orders.

Production Performance Dashboard

A structural Gantt chart shows production performance according to the structure of the production of a product, offering an analysis of predicted times of delivering finished goods.

Personalized Tab View

The view of this modern and intuitive interface can be easily adapted using filtering and grouping functions.

Management Dashboard

PSIasm shows current machine loads in the shop floor view for management.

Reports

System reports offers broad analytical capabilities: orders at risk, work center loads, plan against actual production. In addition, users are free to create their own report using the BIRT component.

Different Planning Scenarios

In PSIasm one can create any number of scenarios on the basis of criteria defined by a system user (changeover costs, back orders, average machine load) and select the best one which becomes the effective plan.


Scheduling system Installation As Easy As Can Be

System installation as easy as can be 

Thanks to the innovative Docker technology the full system can be installed or updated within several minutes, regardless of the operating system. PSIasm seamlessly integrates with external system and supports PostgreSQL, Oracle and MS SQL databases, and can be expanded to use other database systems.

Seamless Integration with ERP Systems

Seamless integration with ERP Systems

With PSIasm one can select any technology to connect to the customer’s ERP system. We have introduced many innovative solutions into the system to speed the integration process by even 80% compared to the standard approach (e.g. open interfaces, building logic in a running application, well-developed data mapping and transformation capabilities).

Our Advantage: Application Operating Speed

Our advantage: application operating speed

Thanks to in-memory computing and cached client applications the application is one of the fastest on the market. For example, it takes a mere 15 minutes to import 500,000 records, data is exchanged with the shop floor every minute, up to 50 users can use the planning dashboard simultaneously, automatic planning of 20,000 operations takes only 3 minutes.

In what languages is the system interface?

A system user can select Polish, German, English and Chinese as the system language. New languages can be also uploaded and there is functionality for the end user to correct translation.

What support does PSI offer during the integration with an ERP system?

During the application’s implementation process we define the scope of data to be imported from ERP systems and create the data generation logic in PSIasm. On a standard basis we provide training and workshops for our Customer’s ERP consultants and IT departments, so as to work out the cheapest and fastest way of integrating systems for the Customer.

What rules does PSI follow during implementations?

Close collaboration with the Customer forms the basis of any business. Due to the nature of our organization we respond to Customer issues in a flexible way and perform implementations reliably. A group of 150 programmers in Poland and a team of consultants staying in touch with the Customer are responsible for tailoring our system to our Customer’s production process needs. 

How can several planners work at the same time?

The system can be used simultaneous by even 50 planners performing production operations. A change made by one planner is synchronized in real time with other users. Additionally, each user can see which operations are presently in the area of interest of a different planner (operations are highlighted with a frame with the user’s login). Planners can see a schedule for the whole plant, but planning can be limited to e.g. individual machines as well. 

What planning strategies does the system provide for?

The system provides for the following strategies: planning by latest order delivery date (to minimize inventory), planning by earliest dates (to maximize machine efficiency), as well as optimistic, neutral and pessimistic schedule updating. In addition, each planning strategy has a set of internal criteria.

Production Process Innovation and Understanding

PSIasm meets the needs of people managing production, planners, IT departments and management.
