Incremental Scheduling

The ability to schedule an operation, to move an operation within a schedule, or to unschedule an operation without performing a reschedule of all the orders. Scheduling is done in steps, or increments. Therefore, once a base schedule is established, you can fine tune it by making adjustments as required without disrupting the rest of the schedule.

In Taylor APS we call it selective rescheduling and it allows you to quickly generate a new schedule (less processing time required) and/or apply different rules to specific orders.
