Finite Capacity Scheduling Instruments

Schedule successors

With this instrument you tell the software to give the current production order the highest priority from here.

The function "Schedule successors" can be found in the bar context menu:

By ticking this item, you schedule all successors of the currently marked operation (if you marked the first operation of a production order then, of course, the complete production order will get scheduled).


The underyling principles of "Schedule Successors:

  • Changes the timing (start date; hence: end date) of all successors.
  • Will not change the sequence on the machine where it is triggered.
  • Has an impact on other machines (as successors will get moved).
  • Will not violate the routing structure.
