Click Production control > Common > Current operations. Double-click an operation to open the details form.

Use this form to view a complete list of the operations that are linked to all current production orders. You can see which operations resource is in use, the start times and the end times of each operation, and other detailed information about the selected operation. The information that is displayed in this form originates from the Production route (form).

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




View general information about the selected operation.


View criteria that are used to process the selected operation. These criteria include the method for calculating consumption, the cost categories that are used, the operations resource alternatives, and the measurements.


View estimation information about setup, process, and quantity, and status information.


View the times that are associated with the selected operation. Time categories include queue times before and after the operation, setup times, run time, and the time that is spent in transit.

Resource requirements

View the resource requirements for the operation. This includes the quantity and capacity load.


Check the number of good items that are reported as finished against the number of defective items.

Financial dimensions

View information about financial dimensions, such as the default dimensions and where the dimensions are used in account structures and advanced rule structures.




View additional information about the operation and the production.

  • For the operation, this includes identifying information, operations resources, scheduling information, and feedback on good and defective quantities.

  • For the production, this includes production numbers, production type, status, and estimated and started quantities.


Open the Start form to enter production details and start the selected operation.

Report as finished

Open the Report as finished form to update the selected operation.

Capacity load

View capacity requirements on the related operations resource for each date and day of the week.

Capacity reservations

View capacity reservations on the related operations resource for each date and day of the week.


Open a selection of journals that are used to report on the current operation, such as picking list and job card and route card.


View detailed information about the planned production route for the current operation.

Route transactions

View all journals that have been posted for the related route.


If job scheduling was used to schedule production, you can view the list of jobs for the current operation.


View detailed information about material expected to be used in the current operation. The information is linked through the Oper. No. on the BOM line.



Oper. No.

Shows the operations position in the sequence of operations.


Shows whether the operation is a primary or secondary operation. When two operations must use the same resource at the same time, the resource is allocated to the primary operation.

Process job ID

Shows the ID of the process job that is related to this operation.

Set up job ID

Shows the ID of the set up job that is attached to this registration.


Displays the operation in the production route.


Displays the number of the next operation in the production route.

Link type

Shows the type of link to the next job.


Shows the property needed for the operation by the related resource. For more information about properties, see Properties (form).

Route group

Shows the route group that controls how the operation is handled for calculation, scheduling, job management, and reporting. For more information, see Route groups (form).

Route type

Shows whether the operation will be completed with an external vendor or at an internal operations resource.


The method that is used to calculate consumption.

Scrap percentage

Shows the percentage of expected materials overuse for the operation. Overuse is included both in the estimate of material consumption and in the operations resource consumption for the current operation.


If the finished product has a formula defined to calculate material consumption, this field shows the factor that is used in the formula.

Costing resource

Displays the resource used to estimate costing information for the operation.

Setup category

Displays the setup category for the operation. The cost amount is calculated based on the setup time specified for the operation multiplied by the rate for setup time retrieved from the setup type.

Run time category

Displays the run time category for the operation. The cost amount is calculated as the process time set for the route * the scrap percentage * the rate for operator time.

Quantity category

Shows the cost category selected for the quantity.


Estimated setup-consumption in number of hours is displayed here.


Process time is calculated for the cost estimation. Therefore, the field indicates the estimated process time in hours for the operation.


The quantity from the scheduled production.


Indicates whether the operation has started. If you start the operations one after the other, you can see which ones are started.

Reported as finished

Indicates whether the operation is finished. If the operation is reported as finished and you try to record a quantity or time for the operation, Microsoft Dynamics AX will issue a warning.

Processing percentage - setup

Current total processing percent for setup.

Processing percentage - process

Current total processing percent for process.

Queue time before

Displays the waiting time for the operation. This is always a positive value. Queue time is scheduled according to the Gregorian calendar, and can be used with subcontractor work.

Setup time

If selected, the setup time for clearing the related operations resource is included in the estimate. The time is scheduled based on the calendar of the operations resource, and does not depend on the production quantity. Capacity loading of the operations resource time is performed similarly with scheduling.

Transit time

Displays the time that is required to transfer the items to the next location. Transit time is scheduled based on the calendar assigned to the related operations resource. No capacity loading is performed for the operations resource for scheduling.

Queue time after

Displays the amount of waiting time after the operation is finished. This time is scheduled according to the Gregorian calendar and can be used with subcontractor work.

Transfer batch

Quantity that can be moved between sequential operations resources.

Overlap quantity

Displays the minimum time that must be used for production before overlap is allowed.

Requirement type

The type of requirement that is selected for the route.


The requirement selected for the route. The value depends on the requirement type selected in the Requirement type field.

Operation scheduling

Shows whether the resource can be reserved when you use operation scheduling.

Job scheduling

Shows whether the resource can be reserved when you use job scheduling.

Financial dimensions

The financial dimensions that were set up in the Financial dimensions form.

Where the %1 dimension is used

The account structures and advanced rule structures that use the financial dimensions that you selected in the Financial dimensions or Default financial dimensions field group.


The name of the field depends on the selection in the Financial dimensions or Default financial dimensions field group.
