IMPACT Resource Manager enables a complete overview of your project and planning resources. It also incorporates planning of cast, stack, and transport planning with element status, which allows for complete control of the progress and easy tracking of each project and/or element. Build your factory with cast units, storages, stacks and transport vehicles. 


Modules in IMPACT is designed for specific areas of use and many of them also require separate licenses to be activated. The functionality that comes with the modules is well integrated with the rest of the program. As an example, it is possible to drag and drop elements from the model view on to a bed in the cast planning module for easy and visual production planning. Any module can be activated from the Modules tab in the ribbon, shown in the image below.
