Work Order Plus Management Manual 4

Production Detail

Application Overview

Production Detail Maintenance/Inquiry/Reporting is a multipurpose interface for one production.  It can be used to inquire the transaction detail of a production, change the order number, operation number and reported quantity of a production and report production transaction data.  If the production is a Batch Production, which contains more than one work order, the interface will look different than the one for a single transaction production.  The mode can be changed Single Transaction Mode to Batch Mode.

 

This interface is not available from any of Elliott’s menus, but can be accessed by drilling down from almost all the other screen programs provided in Work Order Plus.  The interface will be different according to the need of the program that drilled down to it.

 

Compared to the Production Activity interface, this is more focused on the operations and reported transactions of one work order.

Inquiry Mode

One of the most basic functions for this interface is inquiry.  Highlight a production in another interface and press the Enter Key to bring up Production Detail Inquiry. This interface will display information about the work order and operation of the production and the evaluation in machine and labor hours.  If production has been reported, the reported quantity and additional information will be displayed.  If the production is a Batch Production, all work orders and operations will be displayed.

Add Mode

This interface can be used to add a new production.  Usually Work Order Operation will be used to start a new production by entering a Work Order Number and Operation Number before gathering machine hours and labor hours, but the interface only allows starting one work order at a time.  This interface is required to start a Batch Production.  Press the F1 Key at the “Order No” field in Work Order Operation to bring up this interface.  Also, the interface is called when adding a new production in Work Center Operation or if an exception occurs.

 

Single Transaction Mode

 

(Figure 29) Production Detail. Add a Single Trx Production

 

Single transaction mode is used to initiate adding a new production in Work Center Operation.  Enter the Work Order Number, Operation Number and Planned Quantity, or press the F1 Key at the “Order No” field to change to Batch mode.

 

Batch Mode

 

If this interface is called from Work Order Operation, it will default to Batch Mode.  Either by this method or if it was changed from Single Transaction Mode, the system will allow you to add multiple operations into the production.

 

The following functions are available in this interface:

  • Use Up, Down, Page Up and Page Down to navigate the highlighted bar.
  • Use the Enter Key to view detail.
  • Use the Insert Key to add a new operation.
  • Use the Delete Key to delete one operation.
  • Use the F1 Key to change detail.

Reporting Mode

This interface can be used to report production.  Since production reporting is integrated into the time clock system in Work Order Plus, normally you would report completed quantity in Work Order Production.  If you need to report additional information, like scrapped quantity, or if you report production through the Work Center Operation interface, the system will bring up this interface for detailed reporting.

 

There are two ways to bring up Production Detail in reporting mode, through Work Order Production and through Work Center Operation.  When reporting the quantity completed in Work Order Production, press the F5 Key for detail reporting (Figure 31).  In Work Center Operation and in Started Production View, highlight one production and press the F2 Key for reporting.

Single Transaction Mode

 

Several fields need to be entered for each transaction:

  • Complete Quantity and Scrapped Quantity (optional).
  • Order Complete Flag (for last operation).
  • Actually Issued Materials.
  • Outside Process Information, like PO Number and Vendor Number.
  • Serial/Lot Information.

 

To change a single transaction production into a batch production, press the F1 Key in the “Qty Complete” field (Figure 32).

Batch Mode

 

(Figure 33) Production Detail Reporting. For Batch Production.

 

Batch Mode of the interface looks different than the Single Transaction Mode.  Every production detail must be reported before leaving the interface or the system will abort the whole reporting process.  Any production detail not reported will have an asterisk “*” on the left.  Figure 33 shows Order# 200064 is reported while Order# 200069 is not.

 

The following functions are available in this interface:

  • Use Up, Down, Page Up and Page Down to navigate the highlighted bar.
  • Use the Enter Key to report one transaction.  The system will bring up a screen similar to the one for single transaction reporting.
  • Use the Insert Key to add a new operation.
  • Use the Delete Key to delete one operation.
  • Use the F1 Key to automatically report for every operation in the production.  This will remove reported transactions and report each transaction based on the planned quantity.  If an error occurs, the system will abort the routine.
  • Use the F2 Key to delete all reported transactions.  This will not delete operations, but only the transactions.

Maintenance Mode

This interface can be used to maintain a production.  The Operation and Plan Quantity of a production may be changed, as well as Completed Quantity of a production transaction in maintenance mode.  The Order Number, Operation Number and Planning Quantity can be changed if the production has not been reported.  Otherwise, only the reported data, like complete quantity and issued materials, can be changed.

 

To bring up the Production Detail screen in Maintenance mode, use Advanced Options in the Work Center Operation interface.  In Started Production view, Complete Production View and Work Center Activity view, use the F3 Key to bring up Advanced Options and select “Production Detail Maintenance”.  The interface will be different based on the production status.

 

Before Production Detail Maintenance appears, the system will pop up an Exception Handling screen.  Changing production data is considered an exception and the operator should have authority to continue.  Otherwise, supervisor credentials can be entered to continue.

 

Single Transaction Mode

 

Production Detail Maintenance will be entered in two stages.  While maintaining a production which has not been reported yet, you can change Work Order Number, Operation Number and Planned Quantity.  The operation may be changed to another which is in the same work center.  Once the production is reported, only the transaction data, like Complete Qty and materials issued, can be changed..

Batch Mode

 

If the production is a Batch Production, the system will bring up a different interface which lists all operations in the production.  If the production has not been reported, the Order Number, Operation Number and Plan Quantity can be changed.  If production has been reported, only reported data for each operation can be changed.  Operations can be added or deleted to the production.

 

Changing complete quantity, adding a new work order or deleting an existing work order for a completed production may change the cost distribution.  For example, if the batch production increases from 2 work orders to 3 work orders, each work order would distribute less labor cost.  The production cost of a posted work order transaction cannot be changed.

 

The following functions are available in this interface:

  • Use Up, Down, Page Up and Page Down to navigate the highlighted bar.
  • Use the Enter Key to inquire single production detail.
  • Use the Insert Key to add a new work order.  New work orders need to be reported if maintaining a completed production.
  • Use the Delete Key to remove a work order.  Posted transactions cannot be removed.
  • Use the F1 Key to change data.
