Click Production control > Setup > Lean manufacturing > Production flows. On the Versions tab, click Activities.

Use this form to obtain an overview of the production flow activities that are created and configured for the selected production flow version. In the activities overview, multiple activities are listed in the order that they were created.

On the Predecessors and Successors tabs, you can view the upstream and downstream activities that are defined for the selected activity. These activities are configured with activity relations that define an activity sequence. You can update production flow versions that are not activated by adding or removing an activity relation.

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