Automatic scheduling of production orders and operations can be initiated from the following sources

Supported planning strategy names

When a planning strategy needs to be selected, it will be specified as a string value, typically in a variable called planStrat, planStratName or schedulingStrategy

The available supported strategy names are listed below:

Name Description
none ROB-EX schedules nothing, existing date and time for each operation is used. Operation start calendar is ignored if end calendar is specified.
forward,materialcalendar,unlimited Standard ROB-EX forward from material date rule with unlimited capacity.
forward,materialcalendar,limited Standard ROB-EX forward from material date rule with limited capacity.
forward,now,unlimited Standard ROB-EX forward from NOW rule with unlimited capacity.
forward,now,limited Standard ROB-EX forward from NOW rule with limited capacity.
forward,lastinqueue,limited Standard ROB-EX forward from last operation rule. An operation is placed immediately after the last scheduled operation of the resource.
backward,deliverycalendar,unlimited Standard ROB-EX backward from delivery date rule with unlimited capacity.
backward,deliverycalendar,limited Standard ROB-EX backward from delivery date rule with limited capacity.

Planning strategy modifiers

In addition to the planning strategy itself, then additional modifiers are supported using the special notation shown below. I.e. write the following

backward,deliverycalendar,limited[stayOnCurrentResource=true, ensureAfterNow=true]

to run the “Backward from delivery date with limited capacity” rule with the modifiers “Ensure operations planned after now” and “Stay on resource”.

The following modifiers are supported
