Regular security checks ensure data security at all times.

Capacity plan

With our capacity planning, you can schedule projects in such a way that there is no over- or understaffing and the operational utilization is in the green long term.

More effective capacity planning through

  • Filtering the workload of departments or team

  • Overview of ongoing projects, their time requirements and resource consumption

  • Simple project postponement including display of the effect on operational utilisation

  • Display of staff requirements up to 60 weeks in advance

Scheduling

With our schedules, you can efficiently plan staff, inventory and events. Vanillaplan is multi-user capable, so you can coordinate your company's operations with different people at the same time. With just one click, you can switch from the project view to the resource view and receive relevant information on the projects or on employees and inventory.

More intuitive deployment planning through

Flexible schedules

With our flexible schedules, you get an end-to-end solution with specific features from planning to production, assembly, installation, and service.

Planning

  • Allocation of individual employees as well as defined teams in percent or hours

Manufacturing

  • Aligned allocation of your orders to machines and workstations with dynamic consideration of the workstation allocation

Construction/Assembly

  • Assignment of individual employees, inventory, defined teams, groups as well as columns full-time or part-time

Service

Absence schedule

In the absence schedule, you distinguish between absence reasons by colour and symbol. The absence plan is linked to the schedule and capacity plan and the automatic schedule collision prevents the allocation of a resource to two events at the same time.
