Why do you need MORE?
Overdue orders – unhappy customers due to late or short deliveries?
Excessive Inventory – (ie. > 1 weeks stockturn) stockpiled up to the roof, dead cash tied up in deteriorating stock?
Product Returns and quality issues?
Product write-offs due to design changes not properly controlled?
After-Job costings show that jobs are not meeting expected targets?
Long standard lead-times for products inhibiting sales performance?
Inflexibility of plant to fit in rush jobs or customer emergencies (that you could be making increased margins on)?
These are all symptoms of an ineffective shopfloor scheduling system.
You simply need to improve visibility of the production schedule.

- in Production management
- on the Factory floor

Why go for bolt-on Scheduling?
It’s the fundamental key to making profit in a manufacturing business.
Good scheduling is the heart of a manufacturing operation, the very cornerstone of the industrial revolution and the concept of mass production manufacturing. Just how well you coordinate those workers, machines and raw materials dictates how much profit you will make.
Getting it wrong means you will lose customers.
Accounting software and job costing only tells you how much you lost – a month later. Good scheduling software shows you the problem is happening NOW or SOON and enables you to take corrective action.
Good scheduling software enables you to roster your staff to meet demand fluctuations at the least overtime cost.
It makes sure that materials are delivered to the machines on time for startup, or perpetually provides alternate jobs as necessary not only to keep those machines running..
but also to cope with the inevitable relentless variables of the manufacturing environment – both planned and unplanned (reactive). This alone reduces quality issues and product returns.
We Integrate with the following platforms :
Tomorrow is too late to react to a production issue. If not fixed today, it’s already cost you money.
It is unlikely your standard ERP system will have the tools to address this (since most are built primarily as an Accounting database not a GUI simulation modelling toolkit), which is why More is successfully partnered with many leading software brands to provide these tools as a bolt-on module. More integrates with Microsoft AX, QAD, SAP, Syteline, MYOB EXO Business, SysPro and others.
