Use this form to monitor the jobs in a production. Jobs are generated when you run job scheduling after operations scheduling on productions that use operations scheduling. Job scheduling is the detailed scheduling of capacity. It divides operations into their individual task times or jobs. You can use this division to increase the accuracy of the detailed schedule by monitoring the individual tasks.

Operations resources are also assigned to jobs through the job scheduling process. You can increase your control over jobs by establishing maximum capacities for each operations resource per job order. You can also control jobs by monitoring the type of job that is performed.

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

Tab

Description

Overview tab

View information about the jobs that comprise the operations in the selected production. You can monitor the job type, assigned operations resource, status, start time, and end time.

General tab

View more detailed information about the selected job, including the production and operation numbers, job type and links, operations resource information, job management and status, and whether the job is measured at an hourly or piecework rate.

Scheduling

View or reschedule times and dates if necessary. If the Locked check box is selected, the job cannot be rescheduled or moved when a new job scheduling process is run.

NoteNote

You can use Locked to prevent rescheduling, such as when an express item has a high requirement and a fixed delivery time.

Feedback

Check the selected line to compare the quantity of good items to the error quantity for the selected job.

  • Started

  • Ended – Displayed when the operation or production is reported as finished. The job status can be changed to Ended by using the job journal or route journal, or by reporting as finished.
