Routings or operations are steps or tasks used to manufacture a product, which can be carried out on internal work centers or by contracting external providers. Typically, a routing is made up of a series of operations, also called routing steps or routing positions.
In Beas, inside an item’s routing, we will find the following information:
- A list of all the internal or external tasks required to manufacture it
- The standard, alternative, and parallel resources:
- The quality control inspection plans linked to the tasks or operations
- The setup and production time required for each operation
- Details about the work centers at which they are carried
Routings determine the lead times for manufactured items and through Beas’ scheduling functions, determine the start and end dates for production. Also, routing production time and the resources’ cost rates determine the conversion costs associated with a manufactured item.
In this document you will learn how to manage rounting master data in Beas. We have also included a document to explain the different operation types.
