Use this form to view capacity reservations for the selected resource or resource group. Capacity is the percentage of the resource that is available for use in production. Scheduling is possible in different versions.

Reservations can be made on the following load types:

  • Operations scheduled - Reservations made based on a production order with the status Operations scheduled or on Operation scheduled production orders that are subsequently started.

  • Job scheduled - Reservations made based on production orders with the status Job scheduled or a job scheduled production order that are subsequently started.

  • Marked for deletion - Use when scheduling has been stopped, in which case you can return to the starting point.

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

Tab

Description

Overview tab

View reservations on the capacity of the resource or resource group selected. You can see the date the reservation was made and other important information, including reference, number, type, and times reserved.

General

  • View the requirement version in which the selected reserved capacity has been generated by using master planning.

  • Check the work group, resource number, date and load type.

  • Check the percent of the maximum available capacity that has been reserved for this capacity reservation, the scheduled or reserved properties and the start and end times of the capacity reservation.

Reference

  • Check references to see if the capacity reservation was generated from a production order, planned order, or a project.

  • Check the job type that reserved the capacity and the priority of the operations on the resource. Priority is used for simultaneous operations. If you are not working with simultaneous operations, priority always shows as Primary.

  • Production - Reservation generated based on a production order that has at least been operations scheduled.

  • Planned order - Reservation generated based on planned orders.

  • Project - Reservation generated based on projects.

Number

Shows the ID of the reference that created the reservation.

Type

Shows one of the following load types:

  • Operations scheduled - Reservation made based on a production order with the status operations scheduled or an operations scheduled production order that is subsequently started.

Shows the capacity or reservation for the resource in hours.

Start time

The starting time can either be the expected starting time with the status Job scheduled or the starting time for available capacity. The value of reservations with the load type Operations scheduled or the reference type Planned order is 0. Therefore, for operations scheduled production orders and planned production orders that are not yet firm, you can only read the reservation in hours.

End time

The end time is either the time when a production order with the status Job scheduled is expected to end, or when capacity will no longer be available. The value of reservations with the load type Operations scheduled or the reference type Planned order is 0 (Zero). Therefore, for operations scheduled production orders and planned production orders that are not yet firm, you can only read the reservation in hours. As a result, process time for the production is not established.

Resource group

Shows the identification of the resource group.

Site

Shows the site where the resource is physically located.

Type

Shows one of the following the load types:

  • Operations scheduled - Reservation made based on a production order with the status operations scheduled or an operations scheduled production order that is subsequently started.

  • Job scheduled - Reservation made based on a production order with the status job scheduled or a job scheduled production order that is subsequently started.

  • Marked for deletion - Used when scheduling has been aborted, in which case you can return to the starting point.

Load

Shows the percentage of the maximum capacity that is reserved. This percentage depends on the Efficiency in percentage field in the working-time calendar, the Efficiency percentage field for the resource, and the Load field for the related operation on the production route.

Property

Shows the scheduled or reserved property.

Seconds

Shows the number of seconds that are either reserved or available.

Locked

If this check box is selected, you cannot reschedule or change the reservation. This function can be used for rush jobs or other important productions that must finish on time. This ensures that the production is not rescheduled. You can lock productions in the Production orders form.

Oper. No.

Shows the operation number in the production route that capacity is reserved for.

Task type

Shows the job type that reserved the capacity. The job type is specified in the production route and is a part of the operation. The following job types exist:

  • Process

  • Overlap

  • Transport

  • Queue after

For more information, see the Task type field in the Jobs (form) form.

You set up the priority in the production route. For more information about prioritization, see the Priority field in the Route operations on route version (form) dialog.
