If your estimating system is inaccurate your production scheduling software or manufacturing scheduling software will give you very poor results. If the quality of your estimates are good then the standard scheduling for a production scheduling software will be more precise.
What is scheduling?
What is forward scheduling?
Forward scheduling is taking a job with a number of tasks and allocates those tasks to resources as early as possible when resources the resources allow. The first available time that the resource is available to be used the task should make use of it. As with all scheduling methods there are pros and cons on how they work. Forward scheduling may result in jobs being completed earlier then the requested due date because forward scheduling schedules the tasks as early as possible. Forward scheduling tells you when a job could be completed vs completing the job when required.
