The commands registered in Scheduling parameter can be confirmed in the Command Editor dialog. Go to Schedule and choose the Command Editor function.
Each of the commands will be shown in the Default scheduling parameter. They will be executed from top to bottom when the schedule is run.
The following will discuss each command and how this works in Asprova:
Prepare for assignment The orders registered in the Order table become the subjects of this command to be prepared for the processing by other commands later.
This will exclude any unnecessary order.
Unassign all It is used to cancel the assignment of operations. By executing this command, the already assigned operations become unassigned.
This is where all the corresponding operations will be generated from the orders and its master data. As a result, the process-related operations are generated where the generated operation will be assigned later.
Assign privileged operations
The operations with statuses: “Competed”, “Started”, “Frozen” or “Released” will be assigned.
Assign time fixed operations
The time fixed (by manual adjustment) operations will be assigned.
Assign result constrained operations/Assign time fix constrained operations
These are necessary when we use “resource lock and “time constraint MAX” options. Assign/peg orders
We can assign operations that are newly generated or have not yet been registered.
The setting of the assignment direction will be explained in the topic “Scheduling parameters”.
Adjustment This is used for forced assignment of the operations before the “Scheduling basis time” within the “Scheduling period”. In this case, we will need to adjust the starting time and the order of operations.
Evaluate the Schedule
This will generate report where we can confirm the total number of late manufacturing orders, the total setup time, etc.
So, let’s take advantage of the schedule adjustment by controlling the resource load, lead time, etc. The scheduling parameters can be switched through the combo box.
You can schedule with different parameters, which can be registered and selected as explained. You may refer to the online help about Scheduling Logic for the details of the commands.
