1. What is the transit time in beas
- Transportation time from one to another place
- Drying time
- Expand lead times. In this way, urgent work orders can be squeezed in by reducing transit times in APS-calculation types or Priorities
1. Points to be considered
- The transit time is always the time from preview operation to next operation and is defined in the resource master data and it is specified from the previous operation.
- Transit time is entered in days.
- Resource calendar is not considered. The factory calendar is considered only if this was enabled in the Configuration wizard.
PATH: Administration > System Initialization > Configuration wizard > Production.
- A minimum transit time can be entered in Configuration wizard – Master data – Resources.
If you do so, all new resources master data will automatically receive this transit time when first created.
1.1. How beas calculates the total duration of an operation, including the transit time
Calculation of the duration of an operation sequence:
|--- Transit time --| |-- Planned time --| |--- Idle time--|
Example with 2 operations (First operation has no transit time):
Plan time operation 1
Idle time operation 1
Transit time of resource of operation 1
Plan time operation 2
Idle time operation 2
The transit time could be considered, for example, any of the time types described below:
- A transportation time from one place (resource) to another
- The drying time after an operation of paiting
- Expanded lead times. In this way, urgent work orders can be squeezed in by reducing transit times in APS-calculation types or Priorities
Step 1 is machine A, Step 2 is machine B
When the employee is finished with Step 1, he returns the goods to a collection point. Later, the next employee collects the goods from the collection point and starts with step 2.
This time in between is an average transit time.
Example with APS forward scheduling:
You have transit time 0.5 days
With forward calculation you get a result that does not make possible to deliver an order on the planned delivery date. Now it's possible to decrease the Transit time in APS-calculation types or Priorities
2.2. Resource-related transit times
It is possible to define different transit times to the next resource.
Example : 1 day to Resource A and 2 days to Resource B.
Click on yellow arrow in field "Transit time". In this window it is possible to insert the target resources with the resource related transfer time.
