Bent Korsgaard

Intuitive and a down-to-earth solution for gaining control and saving administration time

2017-05-01

...

Pros

You have more or several tasks to be planned and executed consisting of connected and sequenced activities using different work resources (man, machines, others) You also have an idea of the duration of each of the individual activities, and you also know what available time resources you have.

Cons

That is defining your available resources and continuously feed the system with your tasks, task relations and task progress updates.

Pavel Petrov

Very good and simplified UI, not too many functions, which doesn't add extra cost.Easy to use.

2017-10-13

Actually the benefits can be great, once you set up your business data to fit the software, so it can visualize your current status. Our company did a test run on the software in order to see what data we need to collect so we can use it. Currently we are collecting the data so we can start use the software in real working environment.

Pros

Simplicity, the UI, possibility to choose what you want to see.

Cons

The thing i didn't like was that the tasks weren't connected to the percentage bar, so if you have your task marked as 100% completed today, instead of tomorrow, it will not rearrange and pull other tasks earlier.

Hello Pavel,
Thank you very much for the fair review. We appreciate that you take time to collect your production data. This will make your scheduling much more robust and will increase the value that just plan it delivers to you.
In the meantime, we actually started building some functionality that you mention as missing (e.g. provide feedback from the shopfloor into the scheduling software).

Chris Baker

A very useful tool. I have been looking for exactly this for some time!

2018-05-31

It helps us move our clients from a clumsy spreadsheet approach to a simple but sophisticated tool that saves them a great deal of time when they need to make changes.

Pros

It is simple and does what is says very easily. Perfect for small businesses and caters well for bespoke work and those "ASAP' jobs

Cons

There are a few enhancements on the way I am told - The ability to add multiple resources to a task will be great.

Hi Chris,
Thank you very much for taking time to review our software, and to share your impressions with other folks looking at a visual production scheduling software.
And yes ... we are working on the "n resources per task" enhancements. However, this is will be a major new feature and hence I kindly ask you for some patience. This is nothing we will be able to ship on short notice. We'll keep you posted anyway.

Just what I've been looking for!

2019-01-21

I have come to understand that anytime I try to schedule work flow, something usually comes up to ruin my plans. With this software, even when something pops up, I can easily manage the change in allocated resources.

Pros

It is an interactive Gantt chart with an abundance of tools.

Cons

None! Any small issues that arise are tended to with expedience by the support team.

High-tech production environment planning

2019-01-17

Very flexible, open minded and ready to listen (you can phone these people ...) company with a planning module with lots of power!

Pros

The endless possibilities of planning without it making very complex.

Cons

In the beginning, it was not suited at all for an additive manufacturing company which worried us, but after 2 telcos meetings with the development team, our vision was translated into their system.

VERY EASY TO USE AND REACH IN FUNCTIONALITIES THAT CAN SUIT A MAKE TO ORDER MANUFACTURING COMPANY

2017-10-13

A better planning process and a reduction of delivery delays.

Pros

CUSTOMER ORDERS LEAD THE PLANNING PROCESS TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE REAL CAPACITY OF DIFFERENT RESOURCES.

Cons

IN MY OPINION ONLY THE ENTERPRISE VERSION OF JUST-PLAN-IT IS ABLE TO COMPLY ( AND VERY WELL) WITH THE REAL PLANNING NEEDS OF A MANUFACTURING COMPANY (EVEN A SMALL ONE).

Scheduling a make to order machine shop

2019-01-17

As a management consultant I recommended and implemented Just Plan It for a large machine shop that had no scheduling software; as a result they were having difficultly planning, optimizing or understanding their work load or understanding when a product would ship.

Pros

Easy to use but very comprehensive in scope, capable of doing complex scheduling for a large machine shop.

Cons

At times i felt the cloud based approach was slow but this may have been my internet connection.

A versatile and simply maintained product has transformed our Production Scheduling

2018-05-04

Improved visibility, prior warning of over-capacity and late running. The ability to examine scenarios and quoted work accurately.

Pros

I am able to examine job schedule and resource loading at a glance and utilise the flexibility of the software to provide progress information on our CNC machining machines and workshop production too.

Cons

The reporting section of the software is powerful but could be improved slightly - I'm sure the minor issues that remain will be ironed out.

The support from customer reps and the team was excellent they were very responsive to our needs.

2017-10-13

Working with the team on developing Just Planit to suit our ERP system made me consider very carefully what was and wasn't important in our own business.

Pros

The interface is very intuitive and the development cycle is rapid, Netronic are obviously committed to building a product that ticks plenty of boxes.

Cons

With a very large volume of data the workings of the scheduling algorithms were tested and the wait time was considerable for us.

My first thought of seeing this product was ... WOW

2017-10-17

Pros

I have seen a lot of products that are designed for scheduling in a manufacturing environment; but few that are well designed for the small job shop type business.

Cons

The simplicity of the software is also its weakness - because the product would be limited to smaller manufacturing companies. However for the purpose that I see it being used for, this isn't so much a Con as a limitation that won't impact us.

Hi,
thanks a lot for openly sharing your thoughts on just plan it. You are right - we are purposely built for job shops and small make-to-order companies. Hence, we have some gaps to serve large-scale make-to-stock manufacturers and continuous flow production companies. However, this is on purpose ... and hence we can live well with this weakness.

Hello Rolf,
Thanks a lot for providing feedback, and for also pointing out missing functionality. We aim at developing just plan it "hand in hand" with the customers' needs and a "feedback app" is something we definitively have on the screen.

However, we need to make sure that we keep the focus on scheduling & planning, and not open the door to becoming an MES with real-time shop-floor data.

Hence, we are currently "designing" the "feedback app" with the aim of providing it later this year.
