In all areas of industry and business, the optimisation of resource allocation and use has become critical. Services and products must answer the ever growing needs of customers. This has caused an explosion in the number of products and services a company has to provide to its customers. This also drives up the costs for businesses and greatly increases the complexity of problems and solutions. Optimisation tools are therefore needed to control this ever increasing complexity. HortiBench lets you enter the amount of growing space you have available on your nursery. Not just one amount but areas of different growing environments. So you can enter the amount of heated glass, cold glass, polyester tunnel , benches, hanging space, open space, protected space etc. Whatever growing environment you have, HortiBench can deal with it. And you can enter them in square foot or square meters, HortiBench will convert them for you. Since every specie entered in HortiBench has a figure for the plant density ( plants per square foot or square meter), the total amount of required space is easily calculated by HortiBench. The type of growing environment can change during the time the plant is on your nursery. A plant might start on heated benches then be moved to a cold house and might end up outside. A plants growing period can be split in as many phases if you like. The plant densities can vary too with every phase since the plants should be growing and needing more space. The Nursery Utilisation report shows the different growing environments on your nursery and how much of it will be occupied by your production.
