    Would really appreciate ANY feedback.

    Thanks guys.

    Just wanted to bump this thread guys, as I need to report back to my directors with an idea of how the board would look/work.

    Thanks in advance!

    Every board will be different based on the companies needs and expectations. One size does not fit all.

    I do appreciate that, just wanted a general idea of the basic layout of people's production board.

    ie: Do you have the days of the week down the left side and the depts across the top etc etc..

    We have the industry's best Production Scheduling Application, in fact we have two different versions. We cannot simply provide screen shots without learning a little more about your company. I will be happy to provide an online demonstration.

    Default possible free solution

    Hello guys,
    I'm was in printing for 8 years but not anymore. Anyways I ran across this app and immediately thought it would work great as a job scheduling board for printshops.

    https://trello.com/

    Watch the video to see what I mean.

    Please comment with your thoughts

    PS. I am in no way affiliated with this company, just wanted to share something I though was interesting.

    We wrote our own system using excel for a visual schedule board and then use access to print out daily reports . . . .

    We use a system we designed ourselves. It's web based enabling us to access it anywhere in the world. It tells us when the ink, plates and paper are ready then we can schedule the job accordingly. Once the schedule is made I export it to a spread sheet and email it to the entire company. During production pressmen use the web based system as their schedule. Pressmen input their data as they run, once the job is complete the system releases the job to the next process, stahl folder, straight knife etc. Our system follows the job through the plant, through shipping, and through billing. The system refreshes every 15 minutes allowing the data to be available in real time, all the time. Account managers can log in and see if their jobs made the morning truck, I can log in any time and see where the job is in our flow, who ran it etc. If we run into problems the operators document them with the job, I can see those too. If we have down time for whatever reason that is recorded also.

    Everything is available in a report that I can access at any time. I can see our efficiencies, whether we are ahead or behind and if we actually made money on the job.

    It took us 15 years to get this point and we are constantly updating our system.

    Hi:
    I saw this thread and I want to ask if you guys any good and affordable Online or PC base Schedule Software for a small print shop. I found this site: printwatchdog.com, but it looks like they are not updating it anymore.

    I tried the demo version and it meet our requirements. Any of you are aware of anything similar?

    Thank you.

    JRT
