Due to color coding and a customizable dashboard, users are able to clearly visualize issues, schedule tasks, view late jobs, and identify bottlenecks. The drag and drop scheduling functionality facilitates production optimization. Users can integrate real-time shop floor data into the Gantt chart based visual schedule to gain an overall view of production needs.

Businesses can gain insight into resource utilization, compare actual results versus planned results, and export task lists for work centers thanks to reports provided on jobs, tasks, and capacities.

just plan it Scheduling software review

JPI is simple, fast and intuitive to use. Their great customer support team helped us tailor our requirements and made sure our ERP interfaced seamlessly with scheduling making us more effective in helping our customers through better planning. Their Kaizen culture proves that JPI listens to their customer's requirements and strive for constant improvement with each update. I am happy to see new features on a regular basis and regularly recommend JPI.

Their customer service is amazing and knowledgeable, their response times are impressive even though we are in different time zones. It has helped take a job shop environment to the next level.

Just what I've been looking for!

I manage an industrial equipment repair machine shop that is always getting hot jobs. 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. It allows me to stay far enough ahead of the chaos without blowing all of my plans out of the water.

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

Pros

The software is easy to use and brings huge benefit; we are able to schedule production runs through multi-discipline machines and processes in a manner not possible pre-JPI. The appearance is easy to the eye and the information available is powerful. 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. The beauty of this flexibility for me is that it enables us to examine whether parts supply to production jobs is timely. The customer and product support has been second to none and the manner in which Netronic are investing time and energy to improve the product further is very impressive. Where we have requested minor alterations / improvements we have seen these added to the product.

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.

Response from NETRONIC Software

A better planning process and a reduction of delivery delays. A better utilization of manufacturing resources.

Pros

CUSTOMER ORDERS LEAD THE PLANNING PROCESS TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE REAL CAPACITY OF DIFFERENT RESOURCES. YOU CAN EASILY FIND POSSIBLE WAYS, IF ANY, TO AVOID DELIVERY DELAYS.
THE DOCUMENTATION ASSISTS YOU IN LEARNING ALL FUNCTIONALITIES AND YOU CAN BE SURE THAT IF YOU FIND A PROBLEM YOU WILL GET ON LINE SUPPORT IN A FEW MINUTES ( THIS IS REALLY GREAT). MANY WEBINARS ARE ALSO PLANNED TO INCREASE YOUR SKILL IN USING THIS SOFTWARE ACCORDING TO A WIDE RANGE OF POSSIBLE NEEDS.
THE GRAPHICAL INTERFACE AND ESSENTAL REPORTS ARE VERY USEFUL TO CLEARLY UNDERSTAND THE PLANNING SITUATION AND MANAGE THE FLOOR SHOP LEVEL ENSURING THE CORRECT SEQUENCE OF MANUFACTURING ORDERS AND THE BEST SATURATION OF THE RELEVANT RESOURCES.
THEY ARE CONTINUOUSLY IMPROOVING THE FUNCTIONALITIES OF THE SOFTWARE ALSO ON THE BASE OF SOME CUSTOMERS REQUIREMENT

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). THE OTHER TWO BASIC VERSIONS CAN BE USED ONLY FOR AN INITIAL TRAINING BUT THEIR LIMITATIONS PREVENT FOR A USEFUL APPLICATION IN MANY ACTUAL SITUATIONS.
NOT POSSIBLE TO BUY THE LICENSE BUT YOU CAN ONLY RENT IT

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.

Response from NETRONIC Software

It allows me to stay far enough ahead of the chaos without blowing all of my plans out of the water.

Pros

Everything! It is an interactive Gantt chart with an abundance of tools. For scheduling purposes, it has everything you need. You can use it on manual mode, which still has plenty of features to assist your end results. Or, you can enable the automatic scheduling engine that has capabilities far beyond what Ive seen before in the price range. After less than 1 day, i was actually using the software to schedule to flow of work with my machinist and mechanics in our repair facility.

Cons

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

Response from NETRONIC Software

Hello Christopher,
This is an outstanding review and we are more than excited to read it :-) Thank you so much for your endorsement, for challenging us and taking time to share your experience with others. We hope that this is helpful for many machine shops who look for a proper scheduling solution.
