Working with the schedule in the VPS

Schedule previous/next operation automatically

You can arrange for moving an operation to affect its linked preceding and/or succeeding operations automatically.

When operations being part of a production order are moved, the successors and predecessors can be automatically shifted with them while at the same time the float time is always minimized. This can be done with both sequential and parallel operations.

The according settings are made in the "Scheduling" area of the "Setup" dialog:

  • Whether or not predecessor operations should automatically be re-scheduled when an operation is modified.
  • Whether or not successor operations should automatically be re-scheduled when an operation is modified.
  • Schedule across Prod. Order Lines: Dependencies between several production order lines of a manufacturing order can be taken into account for the automatic planning.
