What is Optessa?

Helping manufacturers streamline their production planning process with cloud-ready, user-focused, KPI-driven APS software. Optessa’s powerful ‘plug & play’ solution uses a user-centered three step approach to support effective decision making. 1. DEFINE - import planning data and model the production environment. 2. OPTIMIZE - select important production KPIs and generate an optimized production plan. 3. ANALYZE - review the plan with KPI-driven dashboards and export the plan into production.

Key benefits of using Optessa

Users can define their own constraints, in terms of hourly, weekly, or daily bins/buckets, and constraints can be assigned a weight or priority to be taken into account when planning.

Optessa supports multiple penalty functions types for use in the event that a constraint is violated, with users able to select how penalties are applied.

Flexible definition allows line capacity to be expressed in terms of ‘slots per hour/day/week/shift’, ‘available time by shift patterns’, or both in combination, with users able to select different capacities for individual hours/days/weeks to accommodate changes in line capacity.

Users can view and alter the sequence of orders or lots, with the system immediately reporting new penalty costs, and the ability to drill down on any violations.

Multiple ‘what if’ scenarios and simulations can be run, stored, and compared as part of the planning process.

Optessa Scheduling/Sequencing at Ford

Reviewed 22 days ago

Very positive experience. The Optessa tools do a much better job than our legacy applications in fulfilling to our Production Plans on the initial run. Has helped in pulling the build of Retail over stock orders ahead in the schedule.

Pros

Quality of Scheduling and Sequencing output is very good. Does an excellent job of honoring the various constraints required by our business.

Cons

We receive consistent feedback from our business users that the run times are too long.

A good start

Reviewed 15 days ago

It's well built for what it does. But as a user who is in the application for hours every day, there are opportunities to improve on the interface.

Pros

The layout and the flow or the sequencing tool is intuitive. Support has been available to answer questions along the way.

Cons

The unnecessary confirmation mouse clicks. If I'm not committing something, you don't need to confirm mouse clicks with and "OK" button. Just take the action. Also, I'd like to be able to open multiple windows with the application running for different functions. Can't do that currently.
