FrePPLe is a lightweight open source framework that easily and
quickly delivers a solution for production planning problems.
The primary focus is on the discrete manufacturing industry. FrePPLe is the first open source production planning toolkit for your
day-to-day production planning problems.
For the developer community, the project is also trying to establish a
common ground framework for planning applications. Rather than
basic foundation from scratch over and over again, developers can now
a proven framework to extend with their own extension modules. New workflows and functionality can now be built much quicker and
FrePPLe has two main components.
- The first one is a core library containing the
model and the solving algorithms.
It is generic and can be used in a number of applications.
- A second component is a flexible user interface and
database layer to support the core library.
It takes care of the maintenance of input data, reporting of the plan
results, and data integration to other systems.
