Use this form to create and update operations resources. Operations resources are the resources that are used to complete the production processes. They can be machines, tools, locations, people, or vendors that contribute to the production of an item or to completing a project.

An operations resource consists of one or more people or machines with identical capabilities that are considered as one unit for managing the planning of capacity requirements and detailed scheduling. After an operations resource is created, assign it to a resource group and specific productions.

When you reassign resources to different resource groups, use the Expiration field on the Resource groups tab to specify when the resource can be scheduled in production. This enables you to share a resource across more than one site.

You can create resources without assigning them to a resource group. However, a resource must be assigned to a resource group before it can be scheduled to perform work. A resource can only be assigned to one resource group at a time.

Resources are assigned jobs during the job scheduling process. Job scheduling is the detailed planning of capacity, and separates each operation into its individual tasks or jobs. For more information, see About job scheduling.

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

The information is specific to Process manufacturing production and logistics.
