To confirm or adjust operations, we are going to use the dispatching view. Go to Window and Select New Dispatching View option.
The Dispatching View shows the time on the vertical axis (see date below) and resources on the horizontal axis (see Assembly below).
This is .different from the Resource Gantt chart as it shows one operation on each line, to confirm and adjust easily. In this view, you can also choose what resources you want to display. Let’s just display the operations of the 2 Assembly machines. Go to Dispatching View and select Resource filter.
Set the property as “Resource code”, the condition as “==”, and the value as “Assembly 1”. In the next line, select “or” and set another expression of “Assembly 2” with the same setup as Assembly 1”.
Click the OK button. You will see that only the Assembly machines are displayed.
In this view, you can also move the operations from one machine to another as well as from one date to another just by dragging the operation.
