A routing defines the step-by-step operations you perform to manufacture a product
Each routing can have any number of operations
For each operation, specify a department that determines the resources for that operation.
Primary and Alternate Routings
A primary routing is the list of operations most frequently performed to build a product.
We Can define one primary routing and many alternate routing an item .
define an alternate routing to describe a different manufacturing process used to produce the same product
specify the item and alternate name to define an alternate routing
Bills and routings can share alternate labels
If there is no routing with the same alternate label, components are assigned to operations on the primary routing.
define an engineering routing as an alternate for a manufacturing routing
This would typically be used to prototype a variation from the primary routing that produces the same assembly.
Both engineering and manufacturing routings share the same resource, department, and standard operation information
Sequence of Operations
Routings define the step-by-step descriptions, or operations, for manufacturing an assembly. Each operation on a routing defines a specific portion of the manufacturing process for the assembly. We can use operations to identify the location, the quantity, and the state of completion of the assemblies you are currently manufacturing.
For each component item on the bill of material associated with a routing, We can specify the operation sequence where you require the item.
We can specify at what point in the routing you backflush component material
Moves automatically backflush the appropriate components at the time they are needed.
postpone the backflush of material at time-critical operations until a later operation
Minimum Transfer Quantities
set the minimum quantity that you move from an operation when you define a routing.
The Move Transactions window in Oracle Work in Process issues a warning when you move a quantity less than this minimum
You must define at least one department before you can create a routing.
BOM Allowed must be set to Yes for the item you are creating a routing for.
Completion Subinventory and Locator Fields
Define the completion subinventory and locator where you store finished assemblies upon completion.
Count Point and Autocharge Fields
The Count Point and Autocharge check boxes work together
We Cannot set Count Point on and Autocharge off
When We move assemblies from an operation with Count Point on / Autocharge on operation to another count point operation set the same way, Work in Process automatically completes all Count Point off / Autocharge on count point operations between them .
To transact a Count Point off / Autocharge off count point operation, you must explicitly move assemblies into and out of that operation
Moving assemblies past a Count Point off / Autocharge off count point operation acts as though the operation did not exist in the routing
If we issue components with a supply type of Operation pull to an assembly at a Count Point off / Autocharge off count point operation, Work in Process backflushes these components when you move out of the Count Point off / Autocharge off count point operation into a count point operation that allows backflushing .
Work in Process never pulls components with a supply type of Assembly pull from Count Point off/ Autocharge off count point operations
The Backflush field should always be turned on for the last operation in a routing .
Yes: Include this resource when scheduling an operation from a job or repetitive schedule and calculating manufacturing lead time for the assembly.
No: Do not include scheduling the operation or calculating the lead time.
Prior: Include this resource when scheduling a job or schedule by backward scheduling the previous operation from the end of this resource. Use this option when setup resources can work in parallel with previous operations. The lead time is calculated the same way Work in Process schedules the job or repetitive schedule.
Next: Include this resource when scheduling a job or repetitive schedule by forward scheduling the next operation from the start of this resource. Use this option when the teardown of the current operation can overlap with the execution of the next operation. The lead time is calculated the same way Work in Process schedules the job or repetitive schedule.
Charge Type Field
Determine how each resource is charged in Work in Process.
Manual: Work in Process does not automatically charge this type of resource to a job or repetitive schedule. We must manually charge it to a job or repetitive schedule using Work in Process
PO Receipt: Automatically charge this resource upon receipt of a purchase order in Oracle Purchasing. The assemblies are not automatically moved to the next operation upon receipt, so you must manually move them using Work in Process.
PO Move: Automatically charge this resource upon receipt of a purchase order in Oracle Purchasing and move the assemblies to the Queue intraoperation step of the next operation, or to the To move intraoperation step if this is the last operation.
WIP Move: Work in Process automatically charges this type of resource to a job or repetitive schedule when you complete an operation.
