A task scheduling system for small and medium scale enterprises
High variety industries are characterized by low volume and high product variety. As such their production processes grow more complex with the increase in product variations. Hence, the use of tools such as project management and scheduling applications are important in ensuring efficient production runs. Though SMEs are present in such industries, they have been slow in the adoption of technology due to varied reasons. This slow adoption is often attributed to high set up costs and the complex nature of such tools. This project involves the development of a task scheduling application that will be simple enough to incorporate into their operations and can help make the operations of SMEs in such industries more efficient. Additionally, this application employs a user-friendly approach in order to eliminate the initial cost of training and to help ease their adoption of technology.
