    Preactor Implementation

  • Churchill Associates (UK) Ltd is a Preactor Consultancy Partner. We have been implementing Preactor scheduling solutions in all kinds of manufacturing companies for 10 years, and have helped planners and schedulers in a range of different environments to balance the conflicting demands of capacity and load.
  • Preactor is a uniquely flexible scheduling tool which is delivered with a wide range of powerful methods we have harnessed in connecting Preactor to other manufacturing systems.
    A carefully implemented Preactor system will provide a graphical display of the schedule, and allow the planner to maintain complete control of the schedule by using its drag and drop capabilities.
  • Our approach in interfacing Preactor to other systems enables it to manage the day-to-day chores of releasing orders when due and producing documentation, as well as keeping the ERP system up to date with the current schedule.
