Visual Scheduling Tips & Tricks

Drag & drop operations

Operations can easily be scheduled and rescheduled interactively by drag & drop

Move operations in time

To schedule an operation, you can move it horizontally along the time scale both in the Production Order View as in the Resource View: As a consequence, the operation will be worked off at a different time.

Assign an operation to another resource

In the Capacities View, an operation can also be moved vertically when scheduled – to a different work or machine center. As a consequence, the operation will be worked off by the work or machine center it was moved to. While moving the operation, a “phantom” bar will remain at the original place until the mouse will be released.
