"The implementation EQ Plan has above all meant increased time savings, better overview and smoother rescheduling. The birds-eye view the software offers means that everybody involved in the planning process has full control over the resource rotation schedule.
The smooth way that EQ Plan reschedules also means that we always operate with optimal rotation, and if there is a problem somewhere, rescheduling can be made anytime during the shifts – day or night. Also, the implementation of EQ Plan has had the result that more people know how to reschedule.
Today we achieve 98-99% On-Time-Delivery, something we never could have reached without an efficient planning tool that was implemented flawlessly."
