Until now, mobileX-Dispatch, the standard tool for graphical dispatching, has been used exclusively for operational resource planning and management. With the new mobileX scenario generator extension, mobileX-Dispatch can now also be used for strategic planning.
With this extension, existing data (such as an order backlog from the previous fiscal year) can be used as the basis for creating and comparing various „what if“ scenarios.
There are three steps to using the mobileX scenario generator:
- Generation of a scenario (for example by adding data from a certain period)
- Transformation of data using scripts (for example by increasing the job quantity by x%)
- Comparison of two or more scenarios with each other
Scenarios can also be scheduled using automatic scheduling with mobileX-Dispatch. The jobs that are not assigned in this process represent the load that can not be handled in the scenario. These jobs can then be analysed in detail, for example to determine the geographical region where such jobs frequently occur.
There are many applications for the mobileX scenario generator:
- Increased job quantity
- Reduction of capacity
- Requirements for new skills with the sale of new products
- Regional allocation of resources
Of course, results in the mobileX scenario generator can also be evaluated directly with the reporting functions in mobileX-Dispatch (such as the Excel report feature).
mobileX-Dispatch is therefore no longer just a planning tool for daily use, but also acts as a strategic tool that allows you to be as well prepared as possible for the planning situation of tomorrow.
The scenario generator for mobileX-Dispatch is offered as an extension module for mobileX-Dispatch and can only be used with an existing mobileX-Dispatch server. To learn more, please contact our sales team directly. We will be happy to provide a live demonstration of the functions in a web presentation.
