Comprehensive scheduling management
Fox’s scheduling management solution provides the most comprehensive scheduling system for training centers and operational units, ensuring optimal resource scheduling, careful monitoring of training plan implementation, and flexible short to long term capabilities using scenario planning tools.
Optimized training schedules
The system’s advanced tools ensure that sufficient time has been allocated to carry out training sessions and meet throughput targets, while taking into consideration resource scheduling and time constraints. The system further allows users to change and update schedules without starting from scratch using configurable automated features.
In cases where insufficient time has been allocated for an event, or all of the hours have already been assigned for a given day, the system alerts users as to redundancies or excesses and provides alternatives to solve scheduling problems before they arise.
Efficient resource scheduling
The software manages and maintains schedules for all of the resources within the organization required to carry out training. The system efficiently and effectively allocates resources based on the specific attributes of each resource and the requirements of the training plan. Training scheduling is optimized by assigning the resource that meets the essential requirements of the task, while saving resources with specialized attributes for events requiring added capabilities.
The scheduling software advanced management tools further optimize your processes and prevent conflicts by identifying resource allocation problems in advance and automatically providing rescheduling alternatives based on user defined settings and resource availability and attributes.
Advanced training plan monitoring
The system’s advanced tools monitor and manage scheduling, allowing supervisors to closely track the execution of training plans. The system warns users when delays or changes are anticipated, highlighting gaps and providing options for remedial action to address issues immediately.
Whether a training mission was terminated due to poor weather, or a trainee missed a required session due to illness, the system provides options to reschedule the event to make up missed training missions and canceled events in order to fulfill the training plan.
The system also offers a variety of customized displays for viewing scheduling data that are adapted to different users and different training processes.
The scheduling software offers advanced scenario planning tools that enable managers to plan future training periods and guarantee that they will meet predefined training goals. Planners can manipulate the master plan to determine the impact of changes to specific aspects of the training plan using what-if scenarios.
The system’s advanced capabilities further enable users to predict scheduling issues arising from various scenarios in advance and provide alternatives based on an in depth analysis of resource utilization, schedules and costs related to each of the alternatives. Fox’s software also has tools that enable planners to perform test-run scenarios in order to forecast bottlenecks and prevent scheduling conflicts in the future.
