Tips & Tricks: Are you cheating the scheduler?



Are you cheating the scheduler?


VISUAL is going to schedule based on the information that is known. The due date on the work order should reflect the date that it needs to be in inventory or shipped to the customer. The Concurrent Scheduler will attempt to complete the work order the day before it is due to the customer. Many times users will try and “cheat” the system and put in false dates. This leads to people needing to manually manipulate the data and not believe in the system.


If you still feel you need to move dates around, talk to your manufacturing consultant, there may be a better way to get the results you want.
