Planning and Scheduling
Stottler Henke’s intelligent scheduling systems automatically solve scheduling problems which are too difficult for traditional optimization or dispatch rule techniques. Compared to manual methods, intelligent scheduling lets you create schedules much more quickly, as well as run “what-if” studies to assess alternate scenarios. Stottler Henke offers intelligent scheduling software products and custom solutions based on its Aurora™ scheduling engine; as well as intelligent scheduling consulting to maximize client benefit.
ViPER-CVW enables the Navy to enter, analyze, and review multi-aircraft mission plans rapidly and intuitively. More.
The Boeing Company uses Aurora to prioritize production of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner™. Aurora’s dynamic assembly schedule adapts to real-time production variations, so Boeing can produce aircraft as efficiently as possible. More.
Pfizer uses Aurora-ProPlan to create optimal schedules for pharmaceutical production. Aurora-ProPlan also is part of the Intellicentic consortium led by Pfizer to promote leading proven solutions that optimize pharmaceutical manufacturing. More.
At NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Aurora scheduled the use of floor space and other resources at the Space Station Processing Facility, the world’s largest low-particle clean room where Int’l Space Station components are prepared for flight. More.
Schedulers working with the Air Force Satellite Control Network use the extremely rapid Managed Intelligent Deconfliction and Scheduling (MIDAS) system to generate 24-hour satellite schedules in just five minutes. More.
Aurora is used by Massachusetts General Hospital to schedule its medical residency program. Aurora reduces the time and effort needed to generate schedules, and provides better support for the hospital’s complex staffing needs. More.
Aurora helps Korea Aerospace Industries Ltd. (KAI) schedule production of composite parts for the Boeing 787 More.
Clipper Windpower selected Aurora to schedule the manufacturing of its Liberty series wind turbine, the largest wind turbine made in the United States. More.
For 18 years, Aurora/AMP generated short- and long-term schedules of ground-based space shuttle preparation and refurbishment activities before and after each flight. Rapid scheduling enabled NASA to analyze numerous what-if scenarios efficiently. AMP was ultimately retired, but only at the conclusion of the entire space shuttle program. More.
