Intouch manufacturing scheduling and production planning software
Deliver to your customers on time with the Intouch production planning software.
The Intouch easy to use and intuitive production scheduling/planning module shows users what has happened as well as what is coming up; allowing users to plan rather than react. The Intouch scheduling system allows you to see at a glance if production is slowing down or is stopped, adapt to any changes in production or add any late orders quickly and easily by using the drag and drop Gantt chart.

The job schedule view gives details of each job enabling operators on the shop floor to better prepare for upcoming tool and/ or colour changes and to significantly reduce changeover times. Jobs can be input manually or downloaded automatically from your existing manufacturing system.
The Gantt chart view provides a graphical visualisation of machine loading and capacity utilisation. Rescheduling is easily achieved through a simple drag and drop operation.
Jobs on the Gantt chart can be highlighted for various reasons. For example, to identify tool changes, late jobs or resource clashes.
The plan takes your shift pattern into account, as well as any planned maintenance, overtime or shutdowns.
Furthermore, each individual job can be forward scheduled or backward scheduled to highlight spare capacity.
