The total hours required is correct. The costing will account for all
the time.

Are you trying to schedule start date / completion date?
There is a move time field. You can use < move > to overlap
operations. Problem this is a fixed number of time not PPH.


Does anybody knows how to route 5 operations/machines simultaneously?

If all 5 happen simultaneously like in a cell / continues flow.
You could create a work center that represents the cell (all 5 steps).
Then adjust the number of operators to calculate labor hours.

If all happen in a flow do you really want to report at each step?

Eriq,
I haven't had a chance to deeply look at your particular scenario in LX
yet, but there isn't anything in BPCS that keeps track of each individual
Unit of a shop order. You basically just report what has been completed.
So you can report on any of the operations some quantity completed. When
the total quantity for an operation has been completed you mark that
operation complete. The next operation is still open and the difference
between the Needed vs Finished is the outstanding - obviously. So it
would look something like this....

SO creation - No work completed yet.
OP1 - Req = 261 Fin = 0
OP2 - Req = 261 Fin = 0
OP3 - Req = 261 Fin = 0
OP4 - Req = 261 Fin = 0
OP5 - Req = 261 Fin = 0

First piece on OP1 completed.
OP1 - Req = 261 Fin = 1
OP2 - Req = 261 Fin = 0
OP3 - Req = 261 Fin = 0
OP4 - Req = 261 Fin = 0
OP5 - Req = 261 Fin = 0

Second piece on OP1 completed.
OP1 - Req = 261 Fin = 2
OP2 - Req = 261 Fin = 1
OP3 - Req = 261 Fin = 0
OP4 - Req = 261 Fin = 0
OP5 - Req = 261 Fin = 0

Third piece on OP1 completed.
OP1 - Req = 261 Fin = 3
OP2 - Req = 261 Fin = 2
OP3 - Req = 261 Fin = 1
OP4 - Req = 261 Fin = 0
OP5 - Req = 261 Fin = 0

Fourth piece on OP1 completed.
OP1 - Req = 261 Fin = 4
OP2 - Req = 261 Fin = 3
OP3 - Req = 261 Fin = 2
OP4 - Req = 261 Fin = 1
OP5 - Req = 261 Fin = 0

Fifth piece on OP1 completed.
OP1 - Req = 261 Fin = 5
OP2 - Req = 261 Fin = 4
OP3 - Req = 261 Fin = 3
OP4 - Req = 261 Fin = 2
OP5 - Req = 261 Fin = 1


There isn't anything to keep you from starting on the next operations just

because the first one hasn't been completed for the total quantity.

[BPCS-L] Routing Logic



Hi,

I am new in the manufacturing concept and we are trying to reconcile the
routing of our client.
Does anybody knows how to route 5 operations/machines simultaneously.

Example we have 261 units as orders and we will route it in 5
operations/machines. The problem is we can't route it simultaneously in
ERPLX where after the first operation for the first unit, it will go
directly to next operation. It should run one after the other. And the
first
machine should get the next unit.

On the set up we have, the first operation finish first the 261 units
before
it goes to the next.

Regards,
Eriq
