One Click Scheduling
Excellent effectiveness
even with many unforeseeable changes

Delayed deliveries, employee absenteeism (COVID), changing production priorities, urgent orders, breakdowns, co-op trouble, repair orders, poor quality, you know it?

HAL APS has been designed to effectively solve production problems in an environment of high volatility of everything that occurs on the side of the supply chain and internal factory processes. The APS must reflect what is really happening on the production hall, so only the goal is important, even if it changes several times a day.

Every manufacturing company has to deal with volatility every day. HAL focuses on the maximum support of random events in production and in the supply chain. Handling frozen plans is a dream comfort zone, handling volatility is a competitive advantage.
Drag & drop
The dream of every production planner is to start scheduling with one mouse click. Any change by dragging and dropping the operation on the Gantt chart. Calculations performed in real time, fast, very fast.
One Click Scheduling
One click, it literally takes that long to start scheduling. Work ergonomics is an element of HAL's enormous competitive advantage. Some operations require one click, other two clicks, where there are three clicks ... we're still working on that.
Amazing workflow with Gantt chart

Convenient form of presentation

The most convenient form of presenting the production schedule is the Gantt’s chart. It shows the relationships between technological operations carried out on resources on the timeline. HAL can do something amazing, it can change these dependencies as part of What-if scenarios. Thanks to a very efficient HAL mechanism, it can contain tens of thousands of objects on one screen. A multitude of single-click operations, zooms, sliders, filtering, sorting creates a powerful real-time simulation tool.

From whole to part

Analyze your plan from general to specific. The Gantt’s chart performs calculations on the fly, allowing for any schedule modifications. A moving red timeline separates the past from the future. The color of the block on the chart may depend on many factors, and the content displayed on it is fully customizable. When you hover over the block, a balloon will appear, which will display detailed information about the technological operation, e.g. about the time parameters, demand sources or the current progress of the operation.

Retrieve your money
In a production organization, 60% of all costs are generated by production
It is enough to free 10-15% of the production capacity

Imagine that without investing in a machine park, you will get 10-15% more from what you have. So you will produce more at the same time. It sounds interesting? What if we release much more? Hmm ... or maybe we will try to shorten the total Lead Time, reduce TKW or optimize changeovers. HAL uses very effective and complex scheduling algorithms. Always solves the planning problem. HAL is a journey to the digital world where problems are solved in real time.

Industry solutions as standard
the power of knowledge and experience
Advantage in details

Industry differences are important. The problems of the machinery industry are not the problems of the pharmaceutical industry. The assembly line in the automotive industry is scheduled differently than the assembly line in the electrotechnical industry. The cutting sheet of metal is subject to slightly different rules, and the cutting of glass or melamine boards is different. The quality control rigor in the gas industry is different from that in the ceramics industry. The conversion of the injection molding machine is planned in a slightly different way than the CNC machine tool. HAL offers you Industry Know How as standard.

Dataflow scenarios
We exchange information with any system, with any participant in the production process
Data exchange interface

The HAL must be supplied with input data having its Master Data outside of the HAL, and it must supply information to other process participants. HAL makes decisions and suggests the best possible action scenarios. It is the most important system in a production organization, but for its effectiveness it has to query other systems involved. Data sources may have different locations, depending on the specific architecture. For example, the source of data about the product structure, i.e. BOM / BOM 150%, can be PLM, ERP, MES, CPQ, APS. Any variant is possible.

Manage supply chain disruptions

Late delivery of materials

Delays of cooperators

Breakdowns and faults

Employee absences

Uneven work performance

Problems with quality

Just a schedule
your best battle plan
Multi-level or flat BOM
Product structure

HAL stores information about BOMs and expects information about the mBOM (Manufacturing BOM) structure. HAL is not particularly interested in an eBOM or a 150% BOM (overloaded BOM). For scheduling and production planning purposes, it uses a complete BOM containing all assemblies, subassemblies and materials required in the production process, presented in the sequence of technological processes. As a rule, it requires a bit more information than that contained in the PLM / PDM system, because the revision from the engineering level does not have to include, for example, color variants. The color variant does not affect the design features.

Stop guessing, start planning
Planning that gives you the flexibility to make fast and confident decisions in an unpredictable world for integrated planning and digital supply chain.
Production planning
mid and long term
Year, quarter, month, week, day

HAL offers building plans on an annual, quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily basis. The horizon, depending on the selected variant, may cover n years, n quarters, n months, n weeks, n days. Plans are automatically converted, for example, from monthly to quarterly or annual, etc. HAL needs information at the level of a single index. Providing data from product families requires breaking down into individual inventory items. Planning may concern finished products, semi-finished products, materials. Co-op items may also be planned.

MRP scheduling has failed

There are many reasons why the scheduling algorithms embedded in the most expensive ERP systems have not proved successful.

First, MRP does not solve the planning problem. MRP generates unrealistic production plan suggestions. Thousands of exception messages specify what must be met to complete the plan.

n practice, it is easier to enter production orders manually than to handle messages. The planning system must reflect the reality of production, it must represent physical objects and their scheduling characteristics. Scheduling digital twin.

Skills of people and robots
Advanced algorithms

The effectiveness of HAL is not only the simplicity of the interface or the gigantic ergonomics of the single-click actions used, but also the strength of the algorithms. Intelligent algorithms looking for an increase in labor productivity through a combination of rolling improvements as in Amdahl's law. Algorithms that release production capacity, algorithms that load parallel resources, aimed at the maximum use of all resources. Unique algorithms that take into account the variable performance of human resources competences.

Complex heuristics

The world of science has not found any effective algorithms for many optimization tasks, and the prospect of their discovery in the future seems very doubtful. Therefore, appropriately selected heuristics are used so that a solution can be found quickly, guided by the objective function.

Heuristics are used in the machine learning process.
