The Capacity Model and Planning Engine are electronically linked to your systems to ensure they have the most up to date information. These data links are typically triggered on-demand by the planning team, but can also be configured to work in real-time or based on timed updates. Projective’s planning tools can and have been linked to almost any information system.
The system queries order, inventory and production databases to gather all information related to the planning process. These tools are designed to minimize data inputs from the user, allowing the planners to focus on the business problem at hand. Critical data is validated during the import process to ensure that decisions are made based on reliable information.
An application database is configured to house information specific to the planning tool and to facilitate communication with outside systems. Projective systems typically provide archiving of decisions and their expected impact. These decisions and reports can be exported to your systems or accessed via your business intelligence tools. Projective’s development teams are experienced with several database platforms and will build your application database using whichever is currently in use within your business.
