Pros: We have been closely seeking for an adequate software to schedule our plant construction orders and job shops. Adequate means: easy to connect with our ERP, easy to use and without any further customization, agile in applying and giving support in short notice rescheduling. We are very happy that we found just plan it: it meets our requirements 100%.

Pros: I have seen a lot of products that are designed for scheduling in a manufacturing environment; but few that are well designed for the small job shop type business. Most are designed for very complex manufacturing environments with dedicated scheduling resources. This tool achieved the promise that every other system tried to achieve but failed.

Cons: The simplicity of the software is also its weakness - because the product would be limited to smaller manufacturing companies. However for the purpose that I see it being used for, this isn't so much a Con as a limitation that won't impact us.

Hi, thanks a lot for openly sharing your thoughts on just plan it. You are right - we are purposely built for job shops and small make-to-order companies. Hence, we have some gaps to serve large-scale make-to-stock manufacturers and continuous flow production companies. However, this is on purpose ... and hence we can live well with this weakness.

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.

Overall: 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: It is easy to use and required minimum implementation time. Most importantly, the customer/technical support unit are always ready to answer any question with speed. Regularly update and improve the software features and functionality.
With a strong sense of customer satisfaction and willingness to make an adjustment to the software, Just Plan it is only heading one way from a good software to a great software. Kudos.

Cons: Web based software, the stability and speed of of internet connection is very important to experience the agility of the software.

Overall: Less time to come out with a production schedule. Have an overview of all the sales order received and knowing the resource require well in advance. Most important, able to obtained and relate the estimated time of delivery to customers.

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

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

Pros: Simplicity, the UI, possibility to choose what you want to see. The support is very responsive. Price level is good according the functionality.

Cons: The thing i didn't like was that the tasks weren't connected to the percentage bar, so if you have your task marked as 100% completed today, instead of tomorrow, it will not rearrange and pull other tasks earlier. Also lack of "worker" accounts which can update task completion percentage directly so the manager can see how things are going in real time.

Overall: Actually the benefits can be great, once you set up your business data to fit the software, so it can visualize your current status. Our company did a test run on the software in order to see what data we need to collect so we can use it. Currently we are collecting the data so we can start use the software in real working environment.

Hello Pavel, Thank you very much for the fair review. We appreciate that you take time to collect your production data. This will make your scheduling much more robust and will increase the value that just plan it delivers to you. In the meantime, we actually started building some functionality that you mention as missing (e.g. provide feedback from the shopfloor into the scheduling software).

Pros: You have more or several tasks to be planned and executed consisting of connected and sequenced activities using different work resources (man, machines, others)
You also have an idea of the duration of each of the individual activities, and you also know what available time resources you have.
Also you do not have to manage a complexity which calls for a project, implementing ERP-systems and the like.
In a structured and clever way you want to stay in control without overloading your head, using notepads, using different home-grown excel-sheets, fire-fighting, follow-up chasing and other.
You will probably find the answer to your wishes investigating ┬┐Just-Plan-It. A fast implemented, intuitive and down-to-earth solution for gaining control and saving your administration time.

Cons: No cons. This tool is based on sound practice-oriented principles. But of course you must set the scene for the tool to operate. That is defining your available resources and continuously feed the system with your tasks, task relations and task progress updates. This continued feeding can be automated. But this is a different story.
I have given 4 stars across all subjects. I could have given it 5 stars across all subjects. But you must always leave room for vendor improvements.

Overall: ...

Comments: Easy-to-use and rapidly-to-understand. Delivers scheduling value and insight out-of-the-box with no customizations. Very intuitive design and rapid production scheduling ROI for job shops and small make-to-order manufacturers. Highly recommended. If there is one thing missing, it is the capability to provide feedback about the completion of jobs directly from the shop-floor.

by NETRONIC Software on May 02, 2017

Hello Rolf, Thanks a lot for providing feedback, and for also pointing out missing functionality. We aim at developing just plan it "hand in hand" with the customers' needs and a "feedback app" is something we definitively have on the screen. However, we need to make sure that we keep the focus on scheduling & planning, and not open the door to becoming an MES with real-time shop-floor data. Hence, we are currently "designing" the "feedback app" with the aim of providing it later this year.

Pros: Easy to use, customer service, intuitive interface. frequently upgraded.

Cons: I have no idea!

Overall: I was in search of a scheduling software for a customer of ours. I already knew Netronic and his experience in this field.
I tried Just Plan It and I found it was a very friendly product to use and with a very effective support service.
Within few days, with their help, I was able to implement a solution tailored on the customer needs; the same needs that I could not satisfy in other ways.

Comments: This is the most compelling and comprehensive stand-alone production scheduling software for job shops and small make-to-order companies I ever came across in my career. In my point of view, this software differentiates from all other production scheduling applications by its outstanding visual focus: there are no tables, no menus, no clumsy lists - just a pure and easy-to-understand visual production schedule. With just plan it, I get an easy time and resource scheduling. Big kudos to the folks who developed this.
