Resource Manager DB is a scheduling and planning solution developed for manufacturing companies. It is available for on-premise deployment and is suitable for small and midsize businesses (SMBs) seeking a material requirements planning (MRP) solution.
Resource Manager DB works with Excel so users can import and export data for integrations with other systems and reporting purposes. The platform uses a run-time version of Microsoft Access Database. It is also available with SQL server compatibility.
This solution offers finite capacity scheduling, where bottlenecks are indicated in red. Users can make scheduling adjustments with drag-and-drop functionality and customize the scheduling view by choosing their preferred report view. Reporting options include Gantt charts, production reporting, inventory forecasting, work center activity reporting and more.
Resource Manager DB is available as a perpetual license, sold either for a single user or for five users.

A unique scheduling system with the flexibility we need for custom jobs that have many variables, at the right price point. User Solutions has great ongoing support needed for our continuous improvement objectives after initial implementation.
Flexibility for highly variant scheduling with many workcenters. Easy reporting and working with Excel. Great support during and after implementation.
Maybe not always consistent results in some processes, Although this may be because of initial data structure. Longer usage may show us the causes and remedies.

The User Solutions team and the Resource Manager-DB product provide a unique combination of traditional MRP types of functionality, such as costed Bills-Of-Materials (BOMs), materials scheduling and full Lot Traceability with flexibility at a palatable price point.

We've been using Resource Manager as our sole Scheduling and Planning software for about 6 years and have been very pleased with the ease of use, customer support and functionality. The program is absolutely customizable for any application, and since we've nearly doubled our Production output over this time period the tool has been flexible and very user friendly throughout.
We use the Resource Manager for our all of our Production Planning, reports, and for exporting data directly into our dashboard tools. It's relatively simple and people can grasp the concepts without a Phd. We can track our job progress instantly and create spreadsheets and graphs to analyze, improve and control our work centers and throughput.
It would be nice if the program (as we use it) could integrate with our current MRP software.

a versatile software that can adapt to most production structures
The system is versatile in its scope of offering. Every company runs their production a little differently, the staff at User Solutions is committed in making necessary changes to best fit the customers operation.
like any computer software it may not meet "exactly" everyone's current production model, an element of adjustment and compromise is needed to reap the full benefit of incorporating a scheduling software.

Integration with out existing applications was simple. The database naming scheme and field descriptions makes it simple to build tools to extend usability.
Printing features are limited. Printing features need to be added to areas such as View Schedule, Workcenter view, project details.

We use Excel as report writer which offers great flexibiity in final customization and printing of data. Most screens contain an export to Excel for this purpose.
Bob from Lodge Consultancy
First class product, particularly suited for flexible scheduling needs. Quck implementation gives rapid ROI. Good support gives confidence.
Ease of initial understanding. Feature rich, but not all has to be set up to get the application going. This means that focus on the customer's initial main pain can be achieved from day 1. Quick implementation time - typically 1 to 2 months. Very responsive support, both in terms of help, and enhancement requests.
User interface looks a little old fashioned by today's standards, but once live, users can work easily and efficiently with it.
