We would really appreciate such kind of overview, we have some excel file with data and conditional formating to graphically display schedules, as there are more and more processes and we need to make sure, that we have available capacities. I can imagine, that it is difficult, as there are many variables to consider.
Robot can be taken from schedule, there are three possibilities:
- all robots => all available robots at current time will be taken in planning
- specific robot => only one is taken
- number of robots => I guess that there is algoritm determining robots when schedule come due, the same can be applied in planning tool. Problem would be if available robots would not be enough to cover schedulled demand, but basically, this kind of schedule can be with different colour to indicate it.
When we are speaking about planning, schedule contains when process starts, source is robot, end is difficult to stipulate. Can be taken as mean from previously executed jobs for this schedule, or new field in schedullng for expected run time?
Very much would appreciated such planning tool.
