Production & Facility Scheduler (PFS)
Leistungszähler Übersicht
Leistungszähler Übersicht

The scheduling of production processes should be exact, flexible
and easy to configure. The Production & Facility Scheduler (PFS)
is fully integrated into zenon. This factory calendar controls
equipment and production processes precisely, depending on
the date, time, event and production status. For equipment with
heavy consumption, considerable savings (for example, in energy
consumption) can be achieved using it.
