A+W Capacity Planner

Keep a grip on production capacities


The A+W Capacity Planner comes both as a professional add-on for A+W Production as well as an entry-level solution for A+W Business Pro.


The A+W Capacity Planner handles the planning and control of existing production capacities, in direct and permanent synchronization with the capacities reserved for the order stock. This allows early detection of production bottlenecks and intervention into the planning results. In addition, there is a check of the desired delivery date.

If the desired delivery date is not possible or if it cannot be adhered to, then the system first checks whether it is possible to produce on alternative resources. If there should be no alternative machines or if their capacity is not sufficient, then the system calculates the earliest possible alternative delivery date taking into consideration the route schedule from the ERP system/department.
