Capacity Planning Routing

  • Maintains standard operations with time study notations
  • Maintains work centers
  • Supports labor rates by work center
  • Supports fixed and variable burden rates by work center
  • Maintains multiple routing steps for each part
  • Supports copying of routing steps to another part
  • Allows for tooling, additional description, and drawing reference by routing step
  • Supports move and queue by routing step
  • Provides work center where-used information
  • Provides for FINITE loading of critical work centers and/or infinite loading of all non-critical work centers
  • Calculates manufacturing lead time based on routing steps
  • Shows capacity requirements graph by work center
  • Identifies planned orders and released work orders with separated totals for each
  • Prints work center load detail in a spreadsheet format
  • Allows rough cut loading by work center
  • Allows scheduling by individual machine within work center
  • Uses shop calendar in capacity planning process (with on screen calendar interface)
  • Calculates lead times based on realistic average run times
