Shop Load report
The Shop Load report shows for each production resource on your factory floor, scheduled for the next two weeks by quarter hour increments, working with your Shop Calendar.
Automatically update production start times
CRP not only updates Start Times as needed, but also allows you to lock in these dates and times and assembly resources and direct labor staff. This helps you schedule shift schedules, crew sizes, and equipment.
You can even schedule downtime for planned maintenance on your vital production resources.
