Scheduling & Routing Rules Manual Settings




Use autofit to drop a selected job in the first available time slot regardless of where this is manually dropped onto the planning board

Schedule Around

Use Schedule Around to automatically schedule dependencies for a job that has been manually rescheduled. Schedule Around uses the established sequencing and timing of connected operations.  Check the Right box to include operations after the selected operation. Check the Left box to include operations before the selected operation. It can also be manually activated with a mouse click or the Alt key when dragging a job to the planning board. This will maintain the proper sequence of operations on a job.

  • Use Move ASAP to schedule a new operation or job, unschedule the existing and reschedule it in the first available slot.
