What is SIMATIC IT Preactor AS Standard?

SIMATIC IT Preactor AS Standard uses order-based scheduling to which the user can apply a ranking or weighting to prioritize the orders. It schedules based on availability of resources, additional constraints and the materials required for the order. During the scheduling process SIMATIC IT Preactor AS Standard can take in to account different operation run speeds on different resources, use sequence dependent changeover times based on operation attributes and allow overlaps and slack time between operations.
