      SCHEDULING-SCREENS-visual planning-FR

      Simplify communication with your teams!

      Visual Planning V9 builds on the robustness of existing exchange features to offer automatic resource allocation. You’ll be able to trigger automatic resource allocation at regular intervals, by combining modified event imports and resource allocation contexts!
      What’s more, in this context you can choose the criteria for selecting the resources to be assigned: availability, employment rate, skills and many more!

      Learn More

      To simplify the parameterization of data exchanges, we’ve added the ability to trigger Webhooks (= HTTP Reminders) to Visual Planning 9. These are very useful for notifying your IS (Information System) in real time, as soon as an event is created, modified, cancelled or completed!

      Visual Planning, the automated scheduling software

      VPAutomation, the new flagship feature of the new version of your planning software, Visual Planning 9, consists of algorithms for the automatic generation of schedules. At this stage, 2 possibilities are available: scheduling and assignment.

      Schedule your activity automatically with Visual Planning's Automatic Scheduling.

      Automatic scheduling with Visual Planning 9

      Ideal in production management contexts, it can also be applied to the generation of your business schedules (worksites, projects, production, etc.) to automatically plan task sequences for a set of resources according to their availability and “skills”. Other variables are taken into account on a mandatory or optional basis. These include ranges, “machine” rates, time variables (earliest date, latest date) and order of priority!

      Auto-assignment with Visual Planning 9

      It is now possible to assign your resources to existing “shifts” (events in the schedule) according to their availability and skills, and if necessary, to take into account human resources management rules (compliance with time contracts (35h, 39h, etc.), 2-day breaks, etc.)!

      There’s no doubt that many concrete applications of these algorithms will emerge. What’s more, everything has been done to make your life easier: the adaptation of these mechanisms to your contexts will use our API, APIDesigner, integrated into Visual Planning scheduling software!
