TACTIC Advanced Planning and Scheduling software is an on-premise solution suitable for discrete and batch industry manufacturers. The system also assists with stock and bill of material constraints, inventory piling and replenishment levels and order generation policies.
TACTIC utilizes a “What-if” tool by blending formal data such as orders, stocks, bills and capacity limits) and intuition (e.g., what-if ideas) to generate comprehensive schedules. The software provides interactive dashboards on schedules using Gantt charts, tables and comparison graphs. In addition, it tracks violations in jobs assigned and their causes, and recommends corrective actions.
TACTIC also generates purchase orders based on inventory levels and lot sizing. The “Capable-To-Promise” feature enables accurate delivery commitments based on capacity constraints, replacing earlier inaccurate “Available-To-Promise” functionality provided by existing material requirements planning (MRP) systems.

The demo we had was presented really well showing what features Tactic had and what we were getting. Set up was painless and the company representatives helped a lot with that.
Number of features, ease of use and value for the money spent.
Script import is a little tricky to get set up properly.
The company representatives go out of their way to make sure that Tactic works the way you need it to for your business.
Joshua from Western States Envelope & Label
Tactic has been a solid scheduling package for our use. We have roughly 1500 orders in progress at any one time, and Tactic keeps everything flowing smoothly. The Customer Service could not be better, the Waterloo team is always happy to work thru any issues, and often goes out of their way to help find solutions to problems, if they arise.
Bryan from American Tube Manufacturing, Inc.
Pros, it is pretty accurate as long as you have all the right details in place.
Cons, I think there could be more consolidation of steps so there are not so many boxes to click to get reports. This may be user error, there could be a better way, but I do not have the time to get with my rep to solve the problem.
I WOULD STRONLY recommend that Tactic market to all steel tubing manufacturers for this scheduling needs.
Bridget from Automotive testing lab
We have been using Tactic to schedule the work of our Testing Center for the past 10 years. Powerful, flexible software. Very pleased with customer support (commitment as well as creativity).
Gary from Sioux City Brick & Tile
Tactic has worked well with our scheduling for making brick at our Sgt. Bluff plant. I like the quickness with the way it operates and has a good flow through the steps. Other than a minor glitch with one of the macros, it has worked well.
