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 batch 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.

Tab

Description

General

View general information about the selected operation.

Setup

View setup criteria that are used to process the selected operation. These criteria include the method for calculating consumption that includes scrap, the cost categories that are used, and the costing resource.

Update

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

Times

View the times that are associated with the operation. Time details include the queue times before and after the operation, the 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.

Feedback

Check the number of good items that are reported as finished against the number of defective items. You can also view the hours spent on the resource for the operation.

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.

Button

Description

Start

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.

Journals

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

Production order

Open the Production data on current job form to view all production data related to the current job.

Materials

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

Route

Open the Route form to view information about the planned production route for the current operation.

Route transaction

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

Jobs

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

Field

Description

Production

The identification for the batch order.

Oper. No.

The operations position in the sequence of operations.

Priority

Indicates 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

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

Set up job ID

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

Operation

The operation in the production route.

Next

The number of the next operation in the production route.

Link type

The type of link to the next job.

Property

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

Route group

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

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

Formula

(Consumption calculation)

The method that is used to calculate consumption.

Scrap percentage

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.

Factor

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

The resource used to estimate costing information for the operation.

Setup category

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

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

The cost category selected for the quantity.

Setup

(Estimation)

The estimated setup-consumption in number of hours.

Process

The estimated process time in hours for the operation. The process time is calculated for the cost estimation.

Quantity

The quantity from the scheduled production.

Started

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

Report 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, a warning is issued.

Processing percentage ─ setup

The current total processing percent for setup.

Processing percentage ─ process

The current total processing percent for process.

Queue time before

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.

Run time

The run time category to be used when the operation runs. You can specify a cost price for the run time category to be used in estimating production order. Cost categories are managed in the Cost categories form.

Process qty.

The quantity that can be produced in the specified process time.

Transit time

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

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.

Hours/time

The operations factor for times specified by the operation for conversion to hours with two decimals. You schedule setup time according to the calendar for the work center. It is independent of the production quantity.

Transfer batch

The quantity that can be moved between sequential operations resources.

Overlap quantity

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

Quantity

(Resource requirements)

The number of resources involved if a resource group is identified.

Load

The percentage of maximum capacity that has been reserved. The maximum capacity is specified in the work calendar.

Requirement type

The type of requirement that is selected for the route.

Requirement

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

Operation scheduling

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

Job scheduling

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

Resource

(Feedback)

The quantities and catch weight quantities of good items that are reported as finished against the error and catch weight quantities of defective items.

Good quantity

The number of good items to be reported as finished for the current batch order.

Error quantity

The number of defective items to be reported as finished for the current batch order.

Hours

The number of feedback hours in the current record.
