The Capacity View looks as shown in the screenshot below.
There are three main areas:
Let's look at all three areas in detail.
The time scale covers the period that was defined in the simulation's filter. This is the time from the earliest date to the latest date.
You can change the resolution of the time scale and seamlessly zoom in and out. You can achieve this both with the mouse and/or with the touchpad.
In addition to this, you can also use the time scale to scroll left and right. This can be done by clicking the mouse on the time scale, keep the left mouse button pressed, and then move the mouse left and right.
The table shows you work center groups, work center, and machine center. A triangle indicates that you can expand or collapse the respective row. In the screenshot above, the work center group machining is expanded (down-facing triangle) and you see the work centers cutting, drilling, milling & turning, and paining.
The triangle next to e.g. the work center cutting is right-facing. This tells you that you can expand this work center and drill into more information. Here is how this looks like after you do this:
Now you see, that are three machine centers in this work center: cutting #1, cutting #2, and cutting #3. You also see a machine that visually stands out with its yellow background: the so-called standby resource.
The standby resource does not exist in your Dynamics 365 Business Central machine centers. It is a virtual machine center that we automatically create in every work center. It contains all production order routing lines/operations that are not yet scheduled from within the VAPS, and hence are just scheduled by the Business Central scheduling run.
In the work center row "cutting" or "drilling", you also see a right-facing triangle at the right-hand side. Again, this shows you that you drill down into more information by clicking in this triangle. The additional that you get is the so-called histogram for this work center. Here is how this looks like for drilling:
The histogram is a capacity utilization chart.
The diagram shows you which machine center is working on which production order routing line/operation when.
All the graphical elements can be seen from the below screenshot - with the blue production order being selected and hence showing the links.
