Visual Scheduling Tips & Tricks

What does the Production Order Status View (color mode) show?

The Production Order Status View helps you to quickly see where in your scheduling & execution process your production orders are.

The Production Order Status View differentiates production orders by their respective status and lets you define different colors for the following statuses:

  • Planned
  • Firm planned
  • Released 

The Production Order Status View is particularly useful if you want to quickly see where in your scheduling & execution process your production orders are.

You then can apply the Production Order Status View in two ways:

  1. On the "production simulations" page, you can choose it at "default view color type":
  2. When you are in the visual schedule, you can select Actions --> View Color Mode --> Prod. Order Status View:

 

Important to know: the production order status color is applied to an entire production order.
