JobPack Inc. has released the latest version for the JobPack Real Time Scheduler for production manufacturing companies. The latest version provides scheduling rule options. The user can schedule by delivery date, just-in-time and now by "pass through."

Pass through minimizes the work-in-progress by scheduling sequential operation to start immediately after the preceding operation has ended. This removes the floor time when jobs sit waiting for the next operation. Pass through has an immediate impact in reducing work-in-progress, thus saving money on materials that won't be used for a specific time period and improving cash flow as the delivery date is secondary to the time a job takes to pass through the manufacturing process.
