Operation Details

When a Works Order is created, the operation details are copied from the operations (or Route) on the Bill of Materials for the built item.  If version control is in use, the Active version of the BOM is used.

You can also add, edit and remove operations, if the operations required for an order differ from those defined on the bill of materials.

  • To add an existing Operation, click Add or click on the drop-down list and select Add From Operations Register. Then type a reference, or select one from the drop-down list.  The operation details are copied from the selected operation.
  • To add a new Operation, click on the drop-down list and select Add New Operation. Then enter all operation details manually.

Note: Adding a new operation to a Works Order this way does not add it to the Operations Register or make it available to other Works Orders.

 

To enter or amend the operation Details

Subcontract : If the operation is subcontracted to an outside company, select the check box.

Note: If you select this box, calculations are based on information entered on the Subcontract tab when you cost the works order.

Do not print operation : Select this if you do not want the operation to be included on printed documentation.

Overlap quantity : To start the next operation before the selected operation finishes, enter a quantity. This is the quantity of operations that may still be running when the next operation starts. MRP uses this value to calculate the time that must elapse before the next operation starts. This enables subsequent operations to start earlier, resulting in a shorter lead time for the works order.

Overlap percentage : To start the next operation before the current one finishes, enter a percentage. The percentage of the current operation will be overlapped with the next operation. MRP uses this value to calculate the time that must elapse before the next operation starts. This enables subsequent operations to start earlier, resulting in a shorter lead time for the works order.

Shrinkage : To shrink the operation time shown on route cards or job sheets, enter a percentage.

Run Time Defaults : The default run time to use when adding run time resource details to the operation.

  • Run Time Hours : Enter the number of run time hours.
  • Run Time Minutes : Enter the number of run time minutes.
  • Run Time Seconds : Enter the number of run time seconds.

Delay : To lengthen the lead time, enter the required delay time in the Delay – Hours, Delay – Minutes and Delay – Seconds boxes. The delay will increase the calculated lead time of the works order.

  • Delay Hours : Enter the number of hours delay.
  • Delay Minutes : Enter the number of minutes delay.
  • Delay Seconds : Enter the number of seconds delay.

Quantity Per Run : Enter an amount for the quantity per run.  Time details on Runtime resource details will be divided by the quantity per run when calculating lead time and cost.  Where it is not applicable to measure runtime per 1, for example when a large volume is produced in a short time, the quantity per run can be set to a higher quantity and the runtimes can be expressed in terms of this quantity.  Quantity per run should not be zero.
