Finite Capacity Scheduling Instruments

Apply standard routing

This instrument is meant to help you efficiently bring production orders from the standby resource to a dedicated machine center

The function "Apply Standard Routing" can be found in the bar's context menu:

By ticking this item you add the operations of a production order to the schedule starting from the one currently marked without changing the schedule and using the standard machines from the standard Business Central routing.

The underyling principles of "Apply Standard Routing"

  • Changes the assigned machine center of the triggering operation and all successors (move
    from standby to a concrete machine center).
  • Changes the timing (start date; hence: end date) of all successors.
  • Adds this production order to the schedule with the lowest priority.
  • Will not change the sequence on any machine.
  • Will not violate the routing structure.
