Use this form to recalculate the activity cycle times of a production flow version. The function is useful if a version is changed after it is validated. Changes to a version that affect activity cycle times include the following:

  • Average takt time

  • Minimum takt time

  • Maximum takt time

  • Per cycle unit of measure

  • Quantity per cycle

You can set up synchronous processing or batch group processing. Validation warnings and error messages are displayed in an Infolog.

The following table provides descriptions for the controls in this form.

  3. Set any of the following options:

    • Caption – Enter a description for the job.

    • Batch group - Assign the job to a batch group.
