I believe some fields are reference fields in BPCS 405 CD
and you can find this out by finding the program where the field is updated
then F1 help for info about what the field is for
of course sometimes that SSA documentation has found to be flawed or misleading

Perhaps we not using the same field.
There is a number of operators found in the routings and number of people in the work center


We use the crew size in the routings in our labor ticket formula
how many to print
We want enough labor tickets so that for every shift, every factory worker, fills out labor ticket showing what got done on their watch
so our formula starts with how many standard hours to make the stuff
and applies an assumption of performance of 80% efficiency which I think may be rather high on small orders (in other words I think the efficiency percentage should be adjusted based on the size of the order and/or on the efficiency seeded into the work center through CAP reaction to reality)
then there is the issue of whether we are using crew sheets
a labor ticket plus crew sheet listing all the people who worked on that, like on an assembly wheel or line (there is the possibility that we will be moving from reporting by employee to reporting by team so as to reduce how much labor keying, even with the crew screen ... we are not using bar coding for labor input)
plus allow enough tickets if work starts one day and ends next

Hello Roger,

You made me curious on how 'No. Operators' impacts standards...  I changed a
part on our test side, #of run operator from 1 to 2 then re-rolled it's
standard cost on that part; ended up no impact, i.e. this level labor cost
was .00366 and still is...  Hope this helps.  Good luck.

How does the #of run operators effect the load standards?      Seems like
we are missing labor.     Reading the help text on routing maintenance, it
says the rate is divided by the number of operator for backwards
scheduling.
