Working With Several Work Centers
60 XP Fullscreen Share
Learn how to work with several Work Centers to manufacture different products simultaneously.
1. What do I have to do if I want to use an alternative work center when the primary one is already in use?
Put the first work center as the alternative of the first one. Then, create or edit a routing and add an operation using the secondary work center. Add the second work center as the alternative to the first one and that’s it. The alternative work center will be automatically assigned when the first one is in use. Add the primary work center as the alternative to the other one. Then, create an Assembly Route that goes through the alternative work center.
2. Is it possible to handle several manufacturing orders at the same work center, even if I set up an alternative one?
3. When planning a manufacturing order, I see on my timesheet that 45 minutes more than expected for the manufacturing are recorded. What could that mean?
