Move production orders, production order lines, or operations to standby in one go

The VAPS allows moving unhandled production orders, production order lines, or operations back to standby in one go

Definition of "unhandled"

  • Unhandled future processes, i.e. that are to start after the scheduling start date. In case users have "played around" a lot and then may realize that they are no longer 100% satisfied with the plan, this feature helps them to quickly replan starting from a certain date by moving the selected process to standby and then applying the "add all" function.
  • Unhandled past processes, i.e. the routing status of which is not “in progress” or “finished”, meaning operations that should have started before the current work date but haven't.
