The furnace resource is a resource where multiple operations start and finish at the same time. This can only happen when all of the specs of the operations are set up the same. In this article, we will show how to schedule the resources with the batch processing capabilities.
In this sample, the Resource class is set as Furnace resource (spec 1).
This means that orders with the same resource class set as spec 1 will be assigned at the same time.
In the order table, the Spec 1 of orders 1 and 3 is high.
The Spec 1 of orders 2 and 4 is low.
Run the Reschedule button. You will notice that the orders 1 and 3 are assigned to produce at the same time and so are orders 2 and 4.
