FLEXSCHE GUI Extension

FLEXSCHE GUI Extension is optional software to extend the graphical user interface of FLEXSCHE.

Operation Instruction Issuance

Operation Instruction

The operation instructions for each resource can be issued in XML format. For instance, the instructions can be uploaded to the Web server, and then viewed from the operation site and easily processed using an external program. These operation instructions can be previewed and displayed in FLEXSCHE GUI. The display format described on the XSLT style sheet can be changed as needed.

Snapshot

Snapshot

The overall data can be saved to a single file and restored via a simple operation arbitrarily. This makes it easy to line up and compare many different prepared schedules based on various conditions and to manage the various versions of data. It is also possible to freely select snapshots to be displayed on the chart rows.

Evaluation Chart

Evaluation Chart

The scheduling results can be numerically evaluated by a variety of cross-sections and displayed on a radar chart. This is also compliant with the Snapshot function.

Operation Viewer

Operation Viewer

This graphically displays the operation task structure, network and a hierarchical structure of split operations. In addition to resource Gantt charts, this operates while linked to a variety of locations in the user interface, and it is even possible to search for operations displayed by the operation viewer from a Gantt chart (radar pointer display). Furthermore, the displayed character information can be customized according to format character strings.

Sequence Chart

Sequence Chart

This is a chart in a table format to arrange the operation sequence on each resource. By dragging the cells of operations by the mouse, this can change the operation sequence on each resource or change the assigned resource of operations.

Data Output for the FLEXSCHE Viewer

Data can be output for the FLEXSCHE Viewer. By transferring schedule data to a Web server, it is possible to refer to schedule results via the Internet and Intranet.

Job Gantt Chart

Job Gantt Chart

This is a chart to hierarchically visualize the large scale processes like the heavy industry, the manufacture of large equipments and such. According to the freely defined structure in process division master, this drills down in a tree format from long-term to short-term schedule plan.

WIP chart

WIP chart

This visualizes the work-in-process conditions between processes from a variety of perspectives. There is the "resource WIP chart" that focuses on work-in-process before and after the resources, and an "item WIP chart" that focuses on the work-inprocess of each item. This is a valuable index for obtaining optimal scheduling results.

Format String Editor

Format String Editor

This edits the content of the character strings displayed in the chart and such. The editing is done by intuitive operations ‒ mainly drag & drop ‒ so it is easy to build up the displayed contents without referring to the online manual.

Chart Window Automatic Row Configuring Function

Chart Window Automatic Row Configuring Function

The layout of chart rows is automatically configured based on defined rules. Various methods have been prepared, including a simple method in which pre-defined rules are selected and an advanced method in which the extraction condition and display sequence and such are freely described in detail by the condition format and evaluation formula. This automatically and quickly provides chart displays that always track data that changes daily.

Hierarchical Function for Chart Rows

Hierarchical Function for Chart Rows

It is possible to roll up and group items by creating a tree-style hierarchical structure for chart rows. The hierarchical structure can be freely controlled using the "row insertion" function, pop-up menus and mouse buttons. Combining this function with the snapshot function and automatic row configuration function expands the application range.

Display Compliant with Long-term Planning

Display Compliant with Long-term Planning

It is possible to change the traditionally 'day' unit horizontal axis of the time series chart to 'month' units. It is also possible to add the week and month units to the hour and day units for the tabulation periods of load charts and inventory volume charts.

Report Viewer

Report Viewer

The reports outputted by the data verification method and such are provided in a visually friendly manner. There are functions for jumping to a Gantt chart, and for displaying select categories etc.

Chart Creation Support Function

Chart Creation Support Function

This refers to a variety of function groups for easy preparation of compound charts that are related to a chart presently being displayed. For example, the development display of resource Gantt charts for operations derived from a specific order in an order Gantt chart can be shown. Specific operations can also be highlighted.

Specification of Display Color by Formula

Display colors of characters on a chart, and display colors of operations and left side of a chart are freely defined by formula, and thus the chart becomes more expressive.

Dynamic HTML Display Function

Dynamic HTML Display Function

It is possible to incorporate a page described in Dynamic HTML as a window or panel. Since all objects of FLEXSCHE can be accessed through script in DHTML, the function is not limited to simply displaying a Web page, but can also create ledger sheets and inputted forms, and build applications that move by using the latest Web technologies.

Chart Tag Function

Chart Tag Function

This can paste tags on specific date or operations of Time Series Chart, and display and print them.

Permission Administration Function

Permission Administration Function

When users perform various operations on FLEXSCHE, this automatically judge if the user is permitted that operation to the data based on permission definition. And it inhibits the user from performing the operation when it is not allowed.

Level Display

Level Display

This draws the line representing minimum/standard/maximum level in Inventory charts, Load charts, WIP charts, and displays warnings if the value falls out of range. If the levels fluctuate by time zone, multiple patterns can be defined and can be switched to it.

The functions of FLEXSCHE GUI Extension are constantly being expanded.
