To All:

A client uses 2 sets of work centers for the same physical machine. One set
is for direct labor, the other for indirect labor.

The use of 2 work centers for the same physical machine causes problems in
both capacity reporting and shop order scheduling - capacity is doubled but
more importantly scheduling doubles up and schedules shop orders

The challenge the client is trying to overcome with this double work center
approach is avoiding a multiple on indirect labor

. an operator runs 3 machines in an eight hour shift - hours worked is
8, not 24.

. in the same work center an operator runs 2 machines in a 2nd eight
hour shift - hours worked is 8, not 16.

Disregarding the client's assumption having an operator monitor 3 machines
is indirect labor, how are you handling this multiple machines/1 operator
issue in your routings?
