opt-Studio is giving me a very good overview specifically when planning our sheeters. It has given us the possibility to optimise the order sequence on the sheeters which has increased the productivity significantly. You could also estimate the consequences of unplanned stoppages very quickly and the possibility to “filter down” to different properties speed up the search very much.
