Moreover, Manufacturing Planning Software (Manufacturing Planner) enables you to easily modify production plans to respond to performance issues and changes in demand. The real time load leveling mechanism detects instances of overcapacity and recommends actions to balance the load, ensuring optimal performance

With Manufacturing Scheduling Software Manufacturing Planner’s visual planning , you can also map out production operations on workstations using graphical methods. The clear visualization of tasks on a timeline, broken down by specific machines and processes, improves decision-making accuracy and production management quality, ultimately optimizing manufacturing production.

Overall, Manufacturing Planning Software (Manufacturing Planner) is an essential tool for any manufacturing organization looking to improve and expand its production capabilities. By streamlining production planning, identifying bottlenecks, and providing real time data on inventory levels, this manufacturing planning software helps organizations optimize production processes, reduce production time, and achieve their production goals with greater accuracy and efficiency.

With Delmia Ortems Manufacturing Planner…

By implementing the Manufacturing Planner in your organization, you’ll gain a powerful production planning tool designed to optimize manufacturing production, enhance resource planning, and ultimately, increase the efficiency of your entire supply chain. Say goodbye to outdated spreadsheets and hello to the future of production planning with Manufacturing Planner.


DELMIA Ortems uses the production model that accurately reflects all production constraints, such as the availability of assembly lines and operators or delivery times. A large number of the plan optimization criteria can be configured in the system—there are more than 80 in DELMIA Ortems.   

Based on the entered production model and optimization criteria, the system automatically distributes operations so that the production cycle is optimal, which means as short as possible.

Yes, you can make changes to production orders directly in the production plan. The system will automatically rebuild the plan using new data.

Yes, if we create a plan that considers the availability of raw materials, the system automatically optimizes the plan for this specific criterion. Further, the system provides various material analysis options; for example, the system highlights operations with raw material coverage in green, while operations without coverage and at risk are highlighted in red.

In the DELMIA Ortems system, production planning can be performed on any number of operations—and while there are no technical limitations, there are best practices. We estimate that efficient production scheduling (the Production Scheduler module) best happens on several to dozens of thousands of operations.

For rough-cut capacity mid-to-long-term planning (the Manufacturing Planner module), the number of operations gets bigger and reaches even hundreds of thousands of operations that can be analyzed and optimized in the system.

Depending on the number of operations, the conversion and optimization efficiency is very high. The conversion time takes from microseconds to several minutes (for very complex, long-term production models).

Assemble to Order (ATO) also called custom assembly, is a business production strategy build around keeping the stock level of parts, components, and entire segments high enough, allowing for faster assembly of the end products ordered by the customer. Computer manufacturers are good examples of ATO due to their business model that involves first receiving the order and then using available components, such as a keyboard, monitor, and motherboard, to assemble a computer configured to the requirements.

Batch Production is a production method where the products are made as specified groups or numbers, within a set time frame. The method allows for making temporary changes and modifications throughout the entire production process. Batch production is used in the chemical, petrochemical, food, and pharmaceutical industries.

Continuous manufacturing is a production organizing method where the technological process is continuously executed (24 hours a day and seven days a week) and supplying raw materials and picking up products happens simultaneously and continuously.

Discrete manufacturing is production of finished products that are distinct and countable items, for example, the production of engines or aircrafts. Generally, discrete production is unit-based and involves delivering individual units of the end product.

Digital manufacturing involves the use of computer systems in production, supply chains, and processes. Digital technologies connect systems and processes in all production areas and create an integrated approach to production operations, from design through manufacturing to maintenance and service of end products.

Load leveling is a method for reducing large load fluctuations and adapting production demands to efficiency of resources. The method allows for optimal use of the plant’s production capacity.

DELMIA Ortems Manufacturing Planner (MP) is a module leveraged for planning production capacity for mid-to-long-term time frames. The module’s objective is to ensure production capacity for the implemented production plan.

Production plan is a detailed plan for the kind and quantity of end products to be manufactured and anticipated for manufacturing and includes scheduling the production over the time to allow for executing the sales plan and achieving the anticipated profit. The production plan considers all intertwined technical, organizational, economic, and management factors.

Make to order (MTO) is a custom production model based on direct request, without long-term plans, with the product fully customized to the customer’s individual specifications, needs, or preferences. This model is used for craft production, building IT systems, the automotive industry, hand-made interior design items, or personalized luxury products.
