Master Scheduler’s Challenge
Executives
Finance
ROI must improve; the
stockholders are not
happy!
There’s too much
cash tied up in
inventory!
Manufacturing
Engineering
There are too many
changes! Provide
fixed schedules and
the correct parts and
delivery will improve.
There’s a new
product introduction
scheduled for the fall!
But we need more
time for design!
Sales
Service levels are
down. I need more
inventory! Whatever it
takes to keep the
customer happy!

Production Scheduler’s Challenge
Manufacturing
Finance
Labor / machine
resources not available
for 2nd shift – what are
you going to do about
this?
High variances to “plan”
(extra setup, downtime,
labor), you need to
optimize your
production schedule.
Sales
Drops in a new high
priority order due
tomorrow, which order
can be moved?
Materials
You can’t change the
schedule on short notice
and expect the
materials to be
available.

MSW – Master Scheduling Workbench
Capacity Frame
Displays capacity information per
selected resource in the Schedule Grid
- Balance your planned and required
capacity.
Schedule Grid
The primary context of the workbench.
- View and modify your production
schedules for each item.
Supply/Demand Frame
Provides demand & supply information
per selected item in the Schedule Grid.
- Primary information used for scheduling
decision making.

MSW – Master Scheduling Workbench
Supporting Panels
Enables master scheduling action
and decision making.
Represents over 30 maintenance
programs and reports!

PSW – Production Scheduling Workbench
Production Order Browse
Search & group data per user
specification
Production Order Sequence Grid
Schedule and sequence production
orders by item attributes
- Drag & Drop the orders to
the desired position on the
Sequence Grid.

QAD Planning and Scheduling Workbenches: MSW/PSW
1. EAM Order Visualization
• Business Scenario: Maintenance department
needs to schedule maintenance for a
machine/line. Might impact production plan.
• Planner Objective: Understanding of
maintenance plans ahead of time allowing
Planner to communicate with maintenance
department to schedule best date/time for
maintenance with minimal impact on production
plan, where possible.

2. Co-\By-Product Support
• Business Scenario: Process generates more than
one product - examples:
- Injection molding
- Metal stamping
• Planner Objective: Manage the various products
as a joint structure.
19
QAD Planning and Scheduling Workbenches: MSW/PSW
2. Co-\By-Product Support
• Solution:
- Integration of existing standard co-\by-product
capabilities into MSW/PSW
- ….with additional benefit that co\by functionality can
now also be leveraged in repetitive environments when
using the workbenches

QAD Planning and Scheduling Workbenches: MSW/PSW
3. Product Structure Filter
• Business Scenario: Customer increases demand
for end item already scheduled for particular due
date; multiple BOM levels
- Causes schedule increase for end item
- May require increase of one or more lower assembly
schedules to meet short-term demand increase
• Planner Objective: Quickly gauge impact of
demand increase/change across all BOM levels

Business Drivers
• Are tied to the goals of the Master Scheduler
being:
- Create a level schedule
• Level by Volume and Mix - Load, Setup, other
- Meet customer delivery expectations
• Make to Order, Make to stock, Manage Backlog
- Business Interests
• Manage Inventory, (Safety Stock, Seasonal, Customer
service levels, Buffer)
• Manage Number of Setups
• Customer/Item Priorities
• Reduce expediting, overtime, etc.
• Other
