Blue Star Planning
Optimize your production planning
BSP APS, aka Blue Star Planning's Advanced Planning and Scheduling, is one of the newest industry 4.0 planning software's in the field. With more than 20 years of experience in software development, Blue Star Planning has developed one APS software solution that consists of seven key modules to create the ideal production schedule in these dynamic and complex manufacturing environments.
The planning of and response to customer requests in your production planning, in particular, is actually the primary process, whereas ERP only facilitates this as a secondary process. The APS software of Blue Star Planning makes your production planning the primary process. BSP APS will complete, integrate and incorporate all available knowledge with the already available technology in your factories, like ERP/MIS software and other Industry 4.0 systems.
BSP APS combines constraint-based planning with automatic optimization and sequencing for the dynamic and complex production environment. It optimizes the output of resources, aligns internal departments and inbound and outbound logistics, processes changes seamlessly and lets you plan for the future today.
Together, the seven BSP APS modules work to get higher output from your machines by optimizing production sequences on machines and across departments. Using the latest techniques developed for cloud computing, we can apply Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to your data, apply our algorithms to your planning and integrate with your existing software and solutions.

What does BSP APS DO?
Prevents unplanned downtime, unnecessary changeover times, and waste
Optimizes the production sequence on machines and departments
Makes order processing and other data processes transparent to the entire plant
Takes planning decisions at the strategic, tactical, and operational levels in a more effective manner, with an emphasis on coordinating planning and scheduling processes
Helps to quickly respond to variables and changing conditions by automatically providing different planning suggestions and alerts. Resulting in higher reliability and agility of production scheduling
Provides insight into various limitations and bottlenecks of systems and processes
Our BSP APS is suitable for:
Environments where (manual) planning is an inefficient process
Environments where ERP/MIS planning methods do not properly take into account the complex consideration of different priorities and constraints
Make-to-order (customer demand driven) production environments
Environments with a lot of different products where optimal use of material and capacity is very important.
Large, medium and small businesses
Environments that use many different parts and/or many different production steps
Environments where frequent rescheduling is required using many different (production) components.
