Pros: The MWB is a User friendly and intuitive Planning tool. The customization is very flexible and ORSOFT is very open to get Customer requirements done and changes accordingly the standard setup. Support during projects is very good, the short reaction time for important issues does help to keep the business running.

A great benefit is the dynamic ATP check and the Gantt chart set up.

Cons: For some changes cost intensive. The start takes sometimes very long, because the master data are maintained in external system (SAP).

Overall: Business specific requirements could be solved with MWB.

Pros: the very simple intuitive operation in contrast to the SAP standard. Master data and transaction data can be checked very easily and the dispatcher can easily be provided with all the data required for work. Functionalities such as the material cascades are very useful for the operative work and facilitate the work very much.

Cons: Nothing, we have no problems in the project or in the daily using

Overall: During the SAP implementation, we found that the SAP standard neither provides a clear overview of the production planning, nor does it have the additional disposable data in simple overviews. ORSOFT has solved these issues for us and we have introduced a tool with MWB that considerably simplifies and accelerates the planning for us.
