Milestones Professional and Simplicity support scheduling down to the minute. This makes all kinds of applications possible. This article discusses some of the possibilities, including:
Lab Machine Schedule
The schedule to the left is that of a computer lab. People can sign up to use the computers in the lab for their projects.
The schedule is used to show who will be using each machine at any given time.
Production Process Mapping
The Machine Cycle Schedule to the left shows processes involved in production of a component.
Job Shop Schedule
In the schedule to the left, product batches are color-coded, showing their flow and resource utilization through the shop floor.
Seconds, Nanoseconds and beyond
While Milestones Professional and Simplicity's lowest level of detail is one minute, that doesn't prevent you from scheduling in seconds, nanoseconds or any other unit of time. Just use minutes as your level of detail and set the schedule up to reflect whatever time unit you need.
As far as the software is concerned you are using minutes, while in reality your scheduling can be done in 10ths of a minute, seconds, tenths of a second, or even nanoseconds.
The schedule to the left is set up as a 600 minute schedule, but it appears to be a 6 second schedule. The symbol date format and date heading are set to display 10ths of a minute.
