(Figure 10) Department Operation/Inquiry

 

Application Overview

In WO+, each work center can belong to one department and they can be monitored by department with this interface.  A supervisor can inquire the status of all current laborers and work centers from the selected department and drill down to each work center.  Plus, this interface provides a feature to monitor the status of all work centers status at once no matter what department they belong.  This provides overview information for the whole shop floor.

 

This interface contains three stages:

  1. Enter a department ID or leave it blank to inquire the whole shop.
  2. Use an Operator ID and password to sign in.  Use the F1 Key to toggle between scanning mode and typing mode.
  3. Inquire or modify information for the department.

 

If you drill down from another interface where the Department ID and Operator ID are given, the first two stages are skipped.  Once you are signed in, the system will display general department and shop statistics on the top 4 lines and view information below the double-line separator.  Similar to Work Center/Operator Inquiry, this interface has three views which can be toggled with the F1 Key.

 

The following functions are available:

  • Use the F1 Key to toggle between different views and monitor the status of a department or shop.
  • Drill down to Work Center/Operation Inquiry and other related interfaces.

Or drill-down from another interface

 

(Figure 14) Work Order Inquiry

 

Application Overview

Work Order Inquiry is an interface that provides work order header information as well as current production progress.  Current production progress, like Complete Quantity, Scrapped Quantity and Last Production Date, will be updated whenever a transaction for this work order is created.  Also, this interface displays routing, bill of materials and production transactions for the work order in different views and drill downs are available for more detail.

 

A work order number must be specified unless you have drilled down to Work Order Inquiry from another interface, ex. Sales Order Inquiry.  All the information about the work order will be displayed.

 

Basic information from the work order header will be displayed on the top four lines, including item number, production location, order status and revision number.  If this work order was copied from a COP order, sales order information will be displayed on the top-right side.  The middle of the screen displays numeric statistics about the order, including quantity ordered, quantity completed, balance quantity, planning start and due dates, and actual start date.  “Balance Qty” is for orders where the ordered quantity is not an exact quantity.  “Exact Bal Qty” is for orders where the order quantity is an exact quantity.  Balance Quantity of an order is the difference between quantity ordered and quantity reported.  If order quantity is an exact quantity, balance quantity is ordered quantity minus completed quantity.  Otherwise, balance quantity is ordered quantity minus completed quantity and scrapped quantity.  “Outstanding Qty” is the number of pieces that have been started but not yet finished.

Views

Below the numeric statistics is a view of the work order.  Like many other interfaces in WO+, Work Order Inquiry has three views, Routing View, Bill of Material View and Production Transaction View.  Use the F1 Key to toggle between these views.
