Field

Description

Assign Operations job numbers?

Select this check box to assign unique job numbers to operations jobs that are related to production orders.

NoteNote

If parameters have been set to run job scheduling for manufacturing execution, jobs are automatically transferred from production orders in Production control. In that case, you do not have to assign job numbers to operations jobs. Therefore, this field might not be available.

Assign Projects job numbers?

Select this check box to assign unique job numbers to project jobs.

Assign Activities in project job numbers?

Select this check box to assign unique job numbers to project activities jobs.

Assign Absence groups job numbers?

Select this check box to assign unique job numbers to absence groups, which are set up in Human resources.

Assign Absence codes job numbers?

Select this check box to assign unique job numbers to absence codes, which are set up in Human resources.

Create missing system activities?

Select this check box to automatically create missing system activities during the calculation of registrations.

This is relevant if a worker is set up to use a specific work time profile, and the worker has not made registrations for a whole work day. For example, if the worker has made registrations for six hours on a work day, but the profile day contains eight work hours, a missing system activity line will be created in the Calculate form when a supervisor or team leader calculates registrations for that day.
