SAP Resource Orchestration (SAP REO)

React quickly and flexibly to events in production

SAP REO is the cloud-based scheduling and shift planning tool within the SAP Digital Manufacturing ExecutionThis is a tool that production managers and production controllers can use to control and monitor events on the shop floor. First, gaps in order scheduling are filled automatically and AI-supported via auto-dispatching to minimize downtime.

Considered are, for example:

  • Employees with required qualifications
  • Work schedules with the throughput and setup times
  • Plant & resource capacities and their conditions

Production or shift managers can then make final adjustments and optimizations directly on the store floor with the help of graphical planning support. This means that local expert knowledge and unexpected events such as the failure of machines or employees can be reacted to flexibly and effectively. So human being can always have the last word.

A Gantt chart overview helps to quickly visualize and identify availabilities and problems and also to resolve them directly in this view. The changes are immediately incorporated into the production schedule at short notice and the affected personnel are informed of the changes.
