Setting-up the VPS (for users)

The "Scheduling" settings of the VPS

The following settings can be 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.
  • How to handle conflicts conflicts between existing reservation entries and drag and drop actions users make in the planning board :
    • Warn and Reject: The message informs about the conflict, and then the drag & drop action is rejected. That way, the users cannot violate any existing reservation with the VPS.
    • Decide: The user receives a message about the conflict and can decide whether to cancel or confirm the interaction. If the action gets confirmed, the conflicting reservation will be removed.
    • None: No warning is giving about possible conflicting interactions and the conflicting reservation will be removed.
