What are the APPS?
APPS (Advanced Production Planning and Scheduling) is a combination of software services grouped per package, and hardware infrastructure for the optimization of waste, energy and resources, something that in the modern tech terminology is referred to as Lean-Agile Production, where technologies such as 3D-printing and in general Additive Manufacturing are introduced to create novel materials more efficiently (less energy), with a lower cost, better properties, and less waste.
