Solution

By nature of its production, it is a typical made-to-order production. Each book has a different number of pages, different format, different layout and other about 200 parameters, which determine its final appearance and the method of production in particular. With an access to unified information and because of the level of system integration, it is possible to quickly respond to changes, and trace them back.  Using APS planning, all critical resources are planned as finite, that is to their limited capacity. This provides an accurate overview of the utilization of all capacities. The company also uses a special feature of APS: scheduling.  Workshop then receives exact order of job operations with a plan in minutes.
