One point I can across on the topic is that on cost / speed point of view, the set up is at the workcenter level. It should be possible to have it at operation level instead.

Never got the opportunity to go further on this request thoughh

I'm struggling to model a fairly basic requirement.

There are 3 machines. (Actually 12 in total but only 3 affected)
Machine 1 can produce Product X and Product Y
Machine 2 can produce Product X and Product Z
Machine 5 only produces Product A

Machine 2 runs slower than Machine 1 (roughly half the speed).

The operator on Machine 1 is constant, however the operator on machine 2 may be assigned to Machine 5 depending on demand.

99 percent plus of orders are MTO.

The determinant of which machine is used for Product X is a bit complicated, but is decided at planning time based on other demand and setups.

Any ideas or hints to any docs/blogs for this?

I can't see anything to manage labour constraints in MRP whatsoever and I can't see anything to specify at planning to indicate a specific workcentre or to have a single workcentre load applied to a specific machine.
