In Asprova, it is also possible to schedule the setup time for changing molds and jig tools. This can be specified in the Integrated Master Editor. This article will show you how to generate a schedule setup by switching the main resource and the sub-resource.
In this sample, we will produce item “AX”. Press 1 will be used as a main resource. Mold 1 and Mold 2 will be used as a sub resource.
Let’s register in the Resource setup table a 120m-setup-time to switch Mold 1 to Mold 2 on Press 1.
In addition, let’s set a 20m-setup-time to switch Mold 2 to Mold 1.
Press the reschedule button to see the result. At the Resource Gantt chart, you will see that there is a 120m-setup-time on Press 1 when Mold 1 to Mold 2 is switched. Subsequently, there is a 20m-setup-time on Press 1 when we change Mold 2 to Mold 1.
