Visual Scheduling Add-ins for Dynamics NAV with ongoing support!

Visit Website View Our Posts

Yep, you read correctly!

We are committed to our customers on Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Why? Because we have dozens of customers using NAV and per our global market research on NAV, Business Central, and manufacturing many clients are not thinking of migrating to Business Central any time soon. Our response? We will support and continue enhancing our three visual scheduling add-ins on Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

This also means we are a safe bet if you're wondering how to get more out of your already owned ERP. As of today, we cover the Manufacturing module, the Jobs and Resource module, and the Service module.

What's visual scheduling?

Visual scheduling is a graphic representation of scheduled tasks and activities. It requires an underlying ERP system to generate this task- and time-oriented plan, like a production plan, a project plan, or a service tickets plan. Visual scheduling represents all information in an intuitive visual manner, highlighting dependencies and conflicts. Moreover, it also allows you to interact with your schedule data: with visual scheduling, you can take corrective actions and rearrange the schedule in an easy-to-understand and simple way. 

A visual schedule tells you what is going to happen and in which sequence. This technique provides you with a clear structure, both helping to cope with incidents that appear as unexpected and enabling you to make decisions on the follow-up without much assistance.

How do our extensions handle scheduling on NAV?

All three extensions integrate as closely as possible to the respective module on its standard Dynamics NAV form. Our schedulers provide a visual front-end for your data living in NAV. This means routings, due dates, work centers, machine centers, run times, etc. will all be shown on the screen according to the information in NAV.

All changes made to the schedule can be saved back into your NAV database with one click.

Visual Scheduling for the Manufacturing module

The Visual Production Scheduler (VPS) adds Gantt charts into the results of the standard Dynamics NAV material requirements planning (MRP) process. With this, the VPS lets you see the production schedule by orders, the operations, items, and material requirements, its constraints, and capacities.

The VPS helps you answer the most common questions you'd get as a planner:

  • What is the status of a specific order?
  • Will we meet the deadlines?
  • Which work or machine centers have free capacity?
  • Which work of machine centers has a bottleneck?
  • Is there enough raw material in the inventory to start production early?

Visual Scheduling for the Jobs and Resouces module

It helps you with an integrated project and resource planning.

This extension can help you answer a lot of questions on the project status at glance, for example:

  • What is the timeline of my project?
  • How much will a delay in a task affect my milestone?
  • How do my team’s calendars look like?
  • Who can I assign to a task?
  • And much more!

Visual Scheduling for the Service and Resource module

VSS logoThe Visual Service Scheduler (VSS) is an add-in that ties into the service and resource planning modules of Dynamics NAV.

Without requiring any changes to the standard NAV, the VSS enables you to intuitively schedule service orders, service item lines, and resources via drag and drop. The VSS is the visual representation of the standard service dispatch board.
