PLANNING BOARD

The planning board - the tool for efficient communication

A classic planning board is much more than it appears at first glance. It is a tool for efficient communication. Your planning parameters are displayed in a clear and structured way. Whether employee qualification, machine utilization, capacities, shift allocation, material disposition - the planning board displays all relevant information. This enables you to quickly identify availabilities, responsibilities, workloads, bottlenecks, the status of processing or impending delays - you can react immediately and take action.

✔ Complex reduction

 Transparency

✔ Efficiency increase

✔ Productivity increase

Complexity Reduction through haptic Comprehension

Besides internal processes and procedures, the demands today’s world makes on markets and customers grow increasingly complex. Filtering relevant information in order to be able to make decisions quickly and assuredly is a great challenge. Our planning boards are already a tool for the reduction of complexity here. Information becomes comprehensible – the stocked board is a reflection of all relevant information and processes. As the intake and processing of information takes place over the different sensory organs in humans, our planning boards do not only enable visual comprehension, but also a direct, haptic interaction with the displays. Connections, dependences, sequences, or problems are made haptically comprehensible – and complexity is reduced.

The haptics of the planning board help to reduce complexity and to understand processes and contexts.

A planning board provides more overview & transparency

In comparison, computer planning tools are usually tied to PC workstations and clarity is limited by the size of the screen. Placed directly on the spot, the planning board provides you with all relevant information at any time and thus forms a transparent basis for decision-making.

The planning board becomes a tool for effective communication, as employees are proactively involved, for example in team meetings directly on the board. Motivation and self-organization of the employees are thus promoted and hidden potentials such as planning or problem-solving skills are discovered.

Planning board systems from Weigang - intelligent & modular

Planning systems must be flexible and adaptable. For this purpose WEIGANG has developed two intelligent modular planning board systems:

  • The planning board system "Prisma" - modular planning board with fixed frame
  • The planning board system Sliding planning - allows "endless" planning on two levels

Due to the modular design, the planning board can be expanded at any time. This makes it easy to adapt to changing planning situations. Both planning board systems are available as Plano View, Dyna view, Orga view or Channel Planner V, depending on the application.

"Prisma" system planning board

The "Prisma" planning system makes simple, clear and universal planning possible. The respective planning board is composed of individual, modular, expandable board elements, which are held by a frame that encompasses the entire planning board. The "Prisma" planning system is easy to handle and can be mounted on the wall in a few simple steps. The modular design makes it easy to adapt to changing planning situations at any time. Its attractive design and high functionality make it the ideal planning board for every office.

Planning Board System Sliding Planning - endless planning made easy

In order to constantly map planning processes, WEIGANG designed the Sliding Planning system. The planning surface consists of individual elements that can be moved flexibly on rails. Completed planning elements can be removed from the left-hand side and rejoined at the end of the planning surface. This creates a constant planning horizon. Further rails allow an extension in length or create additional levels. Depending on your requirements, you can combine rolling planning with various planning board systems.

Which planning board is the right one?

When selecting the appropriate planning board, the task at hand is decisive. It determines the type of planning.
We distinguish between:

  • Row planning and column planning
  • Planning with signals and planning with allocations

We will be happy to advise you. Together with you, our experts will analyze your requirements and the desired planning parameters. Important information for the analysis is for example:

  • Which planning horizon is required?
  • What is the smallest time unit to be displayed?
  • Which planning parameters should be displayed?
  • Will plans be made with characteristic order papers from the ERP-System?

Of course, we would also be happy to visit you on site. On the basis of the information obtained, we will then select the right planning board system from our product range for you. Whether Plano-, Dyna-, Orga- view or channel planner V, we offer diverse solutions specially tailored to your needs. A wall mounting is possible for all planning boards. Our mobile stand system also makes mobile planning in the company possible. The robust stands carry the boards safely, but can be easily moved nevertheless.

Digital Planning

Under the name of WEIGANG.NEO, we have developed intelligent, digital planning boards. Equipped with modern technology, we combine the advantages of classical, haptic planning with the possibilities of IoT. Thereby, an interplay of the ERP-system and planning board with top floor and shop floor is achieved. While the ERP-system carries out the rough planning, the detail planning takes place on site – on the shop floor. The human brain’s creativity and problem solving capabilities are utilised optimally.
