SIMATIC IT Preactor Advanced Planning and Scheduling Products
SIMATIC IT Preactor APS is a suite of production planning and scheduling products for small, medium and large companies. SIMATIC IT Preactor APS uses advanced math to analyze and calculate achievable production schedules, taking into account a range of constraints and your business rules allowing the planner to generate and evaluate multiple possible scenarios.

Manufacturers cannot react quickly and intelligently to changes without planning & scheduling tools. The time it takes to generate a schedule using spreadsheets can take hours or even days and it can be difficult to maintain. If there is an unexpected change, it is not easy to generate a new schedule. 
SIMATIC IT Preactor APS can be installed straight out of the box, can be customised and configured where necessary, without disturbing the core Preactor code. It can be used standalone to manage planning and scheduling, and is also designed for integration with other software such as ERP, MES, Data collection, Forecasting, Demand Planning and OEE applications.

SIMATIC IT Preactor AS is a scheduling tool primarily for manufacturers who need to schedule machines, production lines and resources, but Preactor is also used in services and logistics. With many case studies, it has been proven successful across most industry sectors including Aerospace and Automotive, Engineering, Food and Beverage, Consumer Goods and many more.

SIMATIC IT Preactor AP is an essential planning tool for companies who want to enhance competitiveness, increase profits and improve customer service. Effective purchasing of economic quantities of raw materials and timely use of this raw material is key to reducing one of the greatest production problems; unnecessary high stock levels of both finished product and raw materials; and the possibility of this stock reaching its sell-by date before being consumed.
