Gantt chart viewing is now included in the company's Shop Floor Module.

Aw 21471 1403np Factivity

The Gantt chart is a timeline that visually depicts work over time in graphical horizontal bars which can be dragged and dropped. This picture of the shop floor enables a much wider scope of data and a more user friendly scheduling tool. The Advanced Dispatch list is a spreadsheet tool that allows schedulers to interact easily with the workload on each machine, and provides a manual drag and drop functionality so jobs can easily be placed into logical sequence. Once the work is sequenced to minimize waste time, the scheduler can immediately reposition the dispatch lists for all the floor assets with the click of a button. This provides the floor with a refreshed list of jobs in the proper order and it can be on-demand. The software also features functionality to view the entire routing chain for all released jobs. It has a movable time horizon on the top of the screen and work centers listed down the side in groups defined by reporting stations within the company's MES system.
