Factory Planning & Scheduling

Adexa Factory Planning and Scheduling solution offers the industry’s best solution for constraint-based planning. It optimizes your production planning and continuously makes adjustments to the plan execution to ensure on-time delivery at lowest cost of production. Driven by accurate and reliable plant scheduling, you can improve your on-time delivery performance and customer satisfaction by minimizing cycle times. In addition, lower inventories are achieved by optimizing work-in-process (WIP), and improved resource utilization through smart job sequencing, regardless of BOM complexity.
