Complex jobs such as assemblies, split jobs, lots and jobs
with multiple fabrication routers can be linked together
in a tree structure for scheduling, tracking and costing.
The Job Tree shows how the component jobs
are related and displays key information about each one.
You can quickly drill down to display all
job detail for any component.
Complex Job Schedule
A Gantt Chart display shows the overall schedule for each
component job in a tree.
A change in the schedule for any component
will automatically re-schedule all related jobs.
From this screen, you can quickly view the
detailed operation by operation schedule for any job component.
Often it is desirable to link manufacturing
jobs together for scheduling the manufacturing process and
totaling job costs. The Complex Jobs (Trees) module provides
an easy way to link jobs and to graphically view the relationships
Following are examples of where the Complex
Jobs (Trees) module can be used:
Assemblies - The finished
product comprises many parts, each of which is manufactured
separately. As parts are completed, they are then assembled
into the final product. An example is the manufacture of
Repair – A product
has to be disassembled in order to work on each component
separately. For example, an engine needs to be torn down
for evaluation and possible repair of components.
Similar Parts - Similar parts
may be run together in the initial manufacturing steps,
but then are separated for different processing of the final
manufacturing operations. For example, an order for several
door panels of different colors may be fabricated together,
but separated into different jobs for finishing and painting.
Lots - The same part may
be manufactured repeatedly, with each lot requiring a different
Split Jobs – An order may be received
for a quantity of 600 parts, but after the job has started,
the customer requests quick delivery of 100 parts. The order
is then split into two jobs for finishing, one with a quantity
of 100 for rush shipment and the other with a quantity of
500 to be delivered later.
