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.
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.
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.
Customer statement on the use of planning boards in the company
"The WEIGANG AV planning board is a high-resolution control instrument that makes problems visible at a glance. I can only tackle problems that I can see. This has enabled us to noticeably improve in more than one area".
Philipp Kampel, Managing Director ACONA Hydraulik
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. You can make your individual choice from a great number of design possibilities.
Our compact planning board systems - easy to handle and clearly arranged
Here is an overview of our compact planning board systems, whose structure has already proven itself many times over with our customers and which we offer more or less as standard formats for certain planning variants. In the following you will learn more about these helpful planning tools and their possible applications.
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.
