■Execution by referencing scheduling parameters is now possible.
A reference execution command allowing execution by referencing specified scheduling parameters has been added. To use scheduling parameters with the same content in the scheduling parameters and custom menus, simply set one reference execution command that specifies the scheduling parameters to be executed. This saves you the trouble of setting and performing maintenance for each individual scheduling parameter.
Moreover, since the properties of reference scheduling parameters can be edited immediately before and after execution, it is not necessary to create multiple scheduling parameters with partially different settings.

■It is now easier to move bars and change the properties of operations on the order Gantt chart.
It is now easier to move the bar and change the properties of operations on the order Gantt chart. Further, it is also possible to easily display the properties window of operations on the order Gantt chart. Manufacturing lead time is often several weeks to several months in engineer-to-order (ETO), and we have responded to the need of users to be able to check and edit rough schedules rather than detailed schedules in process units.

■We added a feature to change the time between processes by condition by describing the time constraints with expressions.
We created expressions for time constraint MIN(MAX) and resource L(R) time buffer. It is possible to create condition expressions by using information on operations in a preceding process or subsequent process, assigned resources of operations of preceding or subsequent processes, assignment direction, and the like. This makes it possible to take into consideration the distance between manufacturing facilities and add leeway time to each order. For example, assume that the distances between resources A and B in the previous process and resources X and Y in the subsequent process are different. The time constraint can be easily changed through the combination of assigned resources if it is a time constraint MIN expression.

■The pegs between operations and orders on the Gantt chart can be freely edited.
Previously, it was necessary to register output items and input items in the Integrated Master for pegging. Further, in the next order, pegging could not be done midway in a process. With this addition of these features, you can now easily peg operations on a Gantt chart and set time constraints without having to register output items and input items. You can also perform pegging between operations of midway processes.

■You can easily copy the Integrated Master of Job Order Production and Engineer To Order.
In the case of Engineer To Order (ETO), it is necessary to create an Integrated Master for each order. Until now, in Asprova, it took time and effort to create an Integrated Master for each order. To remedy this, we added a feature that makes it possible to automatically create order-specific items and Integrated Master for a particular order by simply registering items to be used as a template and selecting and copying them as template items for the manufacturing order when an order is received. Since the template items and copied items are independent, after copying, one can make changes to refine the details.
