all necessary information to the shop floor using setup and run labor
operations and sub-contract operations, with full text descriptions.
You define the steps necessary to manufacture an item using this tool.
You can have any number of process sheets per item, and multiple items
can share a common process sheet. You can create a process sheet by
copying from an existing process sheet, shop order, or quote. Unlimited
text gives you the ability to document procedures in detail. Links
to the Engineering Management module provide the ability to associate
labor operations with required material to facilitate just-in-time
Copying an existing process sheet to create new process sheets will
save time and increase accuracy. Only the information that is different
needs to be entered or changed.
The text editor allows you to enter as much detail as you need,
both in labor steps and sub-contract steps. Text associated with
a Process Sheet step will print on future shop orders.
You can search for all the places a work center is used, in a single-level
or indented format, which allows you to see the effect of changes
before you make them.
View options include: header information, labor steps, sub-contract
steps, single level bill of materials, or all steps summary. You
can view optional process sheets or alternate operations.
Common Process Sheets
You can share process sheets with multiple manufactured items. This
includes items with different bills of material that share a common
Options and Alternates
Each process sheet can include optional process sheets. These optional
process sheets can be combinable or replacement routings. Using the
combinable method, multiple process sheets can be merged to create
a unique process sheet. Using the replacement method provides the
ability to manufacture a single item using multiple methods. Options
are selected when the shop order is created.
operations provide the flexibility to produce an item multiple ways
using a single process sheet. For each step (operation), within
the process sheet, you can specify alternate operations. This allows
you to define two or more machines that can complete the task but
may have differing rates. You can also specify standards for producing
the item in-house or sub-contracting the operation.
