At Level 2 the following scheduling capabilities are included:
Highlights included in JobTime5's Level-2 Product include the following items:
Explicit Work Stations. Each work center contains one or more work stations. Most commonly, work stations correspond to machines, or work benches, and represent places where work is being done. Work Stations can be defined as implicit (as in Level-1) by simply entering a number of number of active work-stations per shift. Level-2's Explicit Work Stations feature, lets you define each work station explicitly with a number and a description.
On the left screen below, you can see an example of defining 2 work implicit work stations for the PAINT work center. On the right, you see an example of 4 Explicit Work Stations defined for the PROD work center:
Preferred Work Stations. When we define a number of work stations, sometimes we want to route all tasks to the work center, and have the scheduling system assign tasks to work stations in the most efficient manner possible to maximize work center utilization. But other times, some work can only be done on a subset of the work stations. In the Plant Example above, only Station C and D can make large size pieces. Another example is that only Station-A has the ability to make parts with 0.0001 inch tolerance, and some work orders will require this precision.
To recognize your need for 'Preferred Station' constraints, JobTime® 5 lets you assign these constraints to individual operations of specific work orders, to be certain the Operations of these Work Orders will only be performed on one of the allowed Work Stations. In the following example on the left, we restrict the PROD operation to be performed only on Station C or D. On the right, we restrict the PROD operation to be performed only on Station A:
