Supported in ERP?
Different ERP applications support different scheduling parameters to manufacture a product.  (i.e. Queue, Setup, Wait, Teardown, Move, Sub Contract, Transfer/Overlap). Where supported, Visual APS will read the parameters from the operation/routing in the ERP application.  Parameters can optionally be set manually in Visual APS by using the Edit Job function.

Refer to the table below for an explanation of all settings on the Scheduling & Routing Rules > Routing Tab.

 

Scheduling & Routing Rules Routing Settings

Setting

Explanation

Hide completed operations

When enabled, completed operations will not be visible on the schedule board and capacity is available for other operations to be scheduled. Note this setting does not hide the operation in the Task Panel.

Schedule when status is complete

When enabled, an operation can be scheduled where it is marked complete and there is outstanding quantity to produce. 

Use Queue Time

Queue time is the period of time during which the product awaits transfer to the next operation in the routing. When enabled, queue time will be scheduled.

Apply as hours instead of days

When enabled, queue time will be treated in hours instead of days.

Auto schedule to next day

When enabled, queue time will be scheduled to the next day when auto scheduled.

Apply after previous

Determines whether queue time is applied after the previous operation.

Use Setup Time

Indicates the time it takes to prepare the manufacturing work unit for production.  When enabled, setup time will be scheduled.

Apply even when no run or open quantity

Indicates that setup time should be scheduled even when there is no run time or open quantity.

Use Wait Time

Indicates the amount of time between the end of the current operation and the availability of the product to be moved to the next work centre. This forms part of elapsed time

Apply to Operation (off = unit)

When disabled, wait time will be applied to the operation.  When enabled, wait time will be applied for each unit.

Wait Time Resources

Indicates whether resources will be consumed during wait time.

Apply To Non Working Time

When enabled, wait time can be scheduled during non-working time.

Apply even when no run or open quantity

Indicates that wait time should be scheduled even when there is no run time or open quantity.

Use Teardown

Indicate the time taken to close down the specific machine, line, or work center used in the operation after production is complete. It forms part of the elapsed time. Typically, no usable items are produced during the teardown period.

Apply to Operation (off = unit)

When disabled, teardown time will be applied to the operation.  When enabled, teardown time will be applied for each unit.

Teardown Resources

Indicates whether resources will be consumed during teardown time.

Apply to Non Working Time

When enabled, teardown time can be scheduled during non-working time.

Apply even when no run or open quantity

Indicates that teardown time should be scheduled even when there is no run time or open quantity.

Use Move Time

Indicates the time required for the operation to move between work centres.

Apply as hours instead of days

When enabled, move time will be treated in hours instead of days.

Apply to Non Working Time

When enabled, move time can be scheduled during non-working time.

Auto Schedule as Next Day

When enabled, move time will be scheduled to the next day when auto scheduled.

Apply after previous

Determines whether move time is applied after the previous operation.

Apply to operation (off = unit)

When disabled, sub contract time will be applied to the operation.  When enabled, wait time will be applied for each unit.

Use Transfer

Indicates which operation will be overlapped when transfer or overlap is supported by the ERP application 

  • Previous Operation
  • Next Operation

Status 1 & 2 Code

Indicates the status code for completed operations.  By default, the Status 1 code field is automatically configured based on the ERP application LYNQ is integrated with.  Status code 2 can be mapped in the SQL SourceProductionOperationsView, if status needs to be mapped to an additional field.
