Looking for solution to work with Dynamics SL to help client schedule jobs/resources in prototype manufacturing shop. Are there any good solutions other than Sandler Kahne?
We used Printflow (a very powerful visual scheduler from EFI).
We created our own data exports out of our system and into Printflow which is SQL server based.
You might give that a try.

Thanks. I just took a look at their web site and Printflow looks like a tool designed for the print/publishing industry. Is your firm a manufacturing prototyping shop or print shop?
Here is some folks I've worked with before:
It has a really tight SL integration and the support folks I knew back then were pretty good.

Thanks for the tip. I received a similar recommendation from another source so i am definately going to check them out.
Overall, can you tell me what you thought of the scheduling function of their software? Was it very dynamic and flexible with information updates from shop floor kioks updating schedules and their status?
I thought the scheduling was pretty good. I had come from a manufacturing facility where we implemented a different ERP and I can remember wishing I had known about the SL/Jams product combo back then.
I can't speak to the kiosk and floor reporting as I left before we got that far along in the project. I'm sure you can get something from them made up for your needs.
