Click Production control > Setup > Routes > Operations.

Use this form to create or edit operations for a route. Operations are a series of discrete tasks that must be performed in some sequence to produce an item. You must set up operations for each route that you create. Because multiple operations that are linked in sequence represent a production route, all data that is specified for an operation automatically applies to the route.

  • Know which task or activity must be completed.

  • Know the order of the processes and the priority of the operation.

  • Know the requirements for the operations resources that perform the operation.

  • Create resource groups and their associated resources, because resources perform the tasks that are involved in operations.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.




Create an operation.


Delete the selected operation.


Create or update detailed information about operation relations for the selected operation. This information includes the route, item, resource requirements, setup formulas, and defined quantities.




A unique identification name for the operation. The name cannot contain spaces.
