Global Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) Software Market: Introduction
In the current market scenario of manufacturing, an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is inadequate to manage the whole manufacturing process efficiently. A modern-day ERP system manages production at a macro level, but without the strategic functions such as planning, scheduling, bottleneck visibility, materials distribution, and ordering. Advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software is deployed to fulfill the gap in strategic management. Advance planning and scheduling (APS) software is easy to integrate with multiple systems. For instance, PlanetTogether APS offers quick and simple integration with various systems such as:
- Infor Fourth Shift
- SAP - All In One, Business One (Fourth Shift and Production One)
- Microsoft ERP - AX (365 for Operations) / NAV/ GP

Global Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) Software Market – Dynamics
Competition among players operating in the global manufacturing sector has increased strongly in the past few years. Cost and production efficiency is the key to penetrate the market specifically in Asia Pacific, due to price-conscious consumer behavior. With China being the world-leading manufacturer of inexpensive products, the need to offer products at competitive prices has increased across industries. Deployment of advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software is expected to see highest opportunity in Asia Pacific to efficiently manage strategic functions such as planning, scheduling, bottleneck visibility, materials distribution, and ordering.

System Integration and System Downtime Hampering the Global Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) Software Market
Integration of advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software in the manufacturing process leads to increase in system downtime initially. This can hamper the global advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software market during the short-term forecast period. In several countries of Asia Pacific, production systems are not compatible with advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software. This can increase the cost incurred to the manufacturer during deployment of compatible systems in the organization.
North America to Dominate the Global Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) Software Market
In terms of region, the global advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to dominate the global advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software market during the forecast period, as adoption of automated technology in manufacturing industry by SMEs and large enterprises is higher in this region compared to other regions.
COVID-19 Impact on the Global Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) Software Market
The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to adversely impact the global advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software market for a short-term period. This is attributable to lockdown in countries of Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific regions, which hold 75%–85% share of the global manufacturing industry as well as the global advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software market. The major usage of advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software is in manufacturing across different industries. The pandemic is projected to hamper the global advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software market until the 3rd quarter of 2021, due to the shutdown of manufacturing units across the globe.
