Hi Aan/Bjorn,Thanks for your valuable response. I have tried and mapped the above suggested scenarios. However, those are not good work arounds for some of the customers.Practically, my customer have fully labor oriented operations such as assembly. cleaning, inspection etc. which usually not connected to any work center as such and they only use tools. My customer use Mnafacturing Visualizer extensively and rely on those data. They put extra effort to streamline their basic data correct and realistic. When I propose dummy work center it also showing up in MV. Further, this customer process many shop orders per day with many operations. When I ask duplicate labor time as machine time and to hide dummy work centers in manufacturing visualizer, customer was bit worried and questioning, why we pay for IFS if you don’t have such premitive functionalities.However, we have a argument and proposal. At least, If system can consider Lead time calculation basis we use in Lead Time Calculation, w
Thank you very much for your valuable inputs. I have attached the steps which I followed based on your suggestions, but still no response from the application. Please make sure normal search works fine.See below attachment.Best Regards,Thushan.
Hi Bjorn,Thank you very much for your feedback. I believe, this would be really useful and fantastic option for our customers to make their life easier. Ultimately, these options will add more value to the Product and increase the demand for MV. BR,Thushan.
Hi Carsten,Your point is very valid. It’s like we are getting a snap shot of the optimum resource allocation which was real and will be used in similar projects as a Resource Forecast. I also cannot find such option. May be some one in IFS R&D may respond. I have a suggestion to IFS R&D to incorporate additional spread methods in to Project Navigator, so that we can Use Copy Resource Planning option when creating new Resource forecast. Correct me if I am wrong Carsten.BR, Thushan
If I am correct, the Department in IFS Manufacturing is used for information purposes. This can be connected to a work center hence it will be reflected in the shop order operations and consider in load logic. But there is no functionality to connect Department in to a Part number like in Production Line.Suggestion would be to enhance this as a customization.1. Establish Part number and Department relationship like in Production Line. 2. Establish Department Mandatory on Shop Order header.3. Establish the validation of department and part number relationship.
Thank you for all your inputs. I believe existing solution may not fully satisfy our requirement. However, my expectation is, IFS should keep the provision for user to define the WIP Level and the criteria.Example: User may decide it depending on the % operation sequence completion, % qty completion of the operation, % WIP Value, manual preference. This could be implemented in Shop order operation level together with basic data. Following shows different WIP Levels Criteria's (Included in a drop down) and Example formulas.
