When you can no longer plan your production efficiently in a spreadsheet or ERP system frePPle provides an easy next step to bring your planning process to new level.
FrePPLe’s advanced planning algorithms consider the finite availability material, machines, personnel and time. They implement base practices such as “theory of constraints” (ie plan the bottleneck resources), “pull-based planning” (ie start production as late as possible and based on a demand signal) and “lean manufacturing” (ie avoid intermediate delays and work-in-progress).
FrePPLe brings fast and accurate planning that’ll lift your planning processes to a new capability level. It enables an agile response to customer demand and changes in available material, capacity and personnel.
FrePPLe is designed for fast implementations, particularly for small and medium enterprises. The return on investment will be very quick.
With over 5700 downloads per year, frePPLe is the leading open source Advanced Planning System.
