"From time wasted, there can be no
salvage...", Henry Ford.
For 28 years, JobTime Systems, Inc. has helped every user of
our products gain the very best use of every minute of time for their
planning and scheduling requirements.
Founded in 1983, JobTime Systems pioneered scheduling in strong
support of fundamental principles of Lean Six Sigma to not waste
any resource, and especially the resource of time.
shop is concerned with capacity load across all departments.
JobTime®5 makes capacity
load visible rapidly and responsively. Our interactive Schedule Board
displays BOTH machines and resources, and drag & drop moves all labor &
tooling resources when you move a given operation on a machine to a
different time. Accurate finite capacity modeling is delivered and
displayed by JobTime®5's
screens, schedule board, and 30 graphs and reports. And you can add unlimited custom reports
and share them selectively across your corporate Intranet.
Secondary Resource Constraints
Most manufacturers need their
schedules to consider
both machine capacity plus labor and other secondary
constraints like tools, floor space, power or emissions.
also supports preferred station constraints to
limit machines on certain parts. You can also define
subsets of labor groups or tooling-groups to be used on selected jobs. Accurate modeling of shop
operations is the key to effective production scheduling. And it keeps
your shop flexible as it changes and grows over time, and even when you
alter styles of manufacturing. (learn

schedules that can be readily followed on the shop floor. The
in-house assembly of internally fabricated items depends on logically
scheduling supporting make components. This feature provides timely
scheduling of internal make items, to insure the smooth assembly of
higher items. (learn
Some shops need to schedule jobs to maximize setup changeover
you two options: exact setup matching, in which tasks in the same
setup-state follow each other with zero setup time, or a
setup-changeover time matrix, allowing precise definition of changeover
time from each setup-state to any other.
automatically optimizes the sequence of operations to minimize the total
time a given work center spends on setup changeovers, thereby maximizing
the time work centers spend on active production.
Advanced Planning and Scheduling.
ERP vendors now seek to
enhance classic master scheduling through Finite Capacity Scheduling Software
but also adding multi-plant scheduling of Supply Chain linkages.
Recognizing materials scheduling is key to accomplishing true
'Capacity-to-Promise (CTP)' capability. Now you can supercharge your
materials scheduling as well as your supply chain.
materials planning and production
scheduling work seamlessly together in a single framework to fully
control capacity and materials.
