The scheduling by production order view allows you to have a macro visualization of the different production orders of the account, enabling the visualization of the different workloads and capacities of the company considering the different available filters.

In case you're interested in knowing more about the calculations for load and capacity, we recommend reviewing this article. It provides several examples, offering a more detailed explanation of how the load and capacity are calculated considering multiple scenarios.

Available Filters

There are several filters available to help you understand partial loads and capacities in the production order scheduling menu.

  • Scale: Periodicity that will be displayed on the Gantt chart. The values available are hour, day, week, month.

  • Shipping: Only the production orders with the shipping identified on the filter will be displayed. The load and capacity will be adapted accordingly.

  • Product: Only the production orders that have the identified product will be displayed. The load and capacity will be adapted accordingly.

  • Production Order: Only the filtered production order will be displayed. The load and capacity will be adapted accordingly.

  • Client: Only the production orders with a shipping linked to the filtered client will be displayed. The load and capacity will be adapted accordingly.

  • Product Families: Only the production orders that contain at least one product assigned to the filtered product family will be displayed.

  • Worker Groups (capacity filter): Only the capacity of the workers assigned to the filtered worker group will be shown

  • Section (capacity filter): Only the capacity of the workers assigned to the filtered worker group will be shown

  • Hide Weekends: If selected, the weekends will not be presented on the Gantt chat.

  • Date filter: Time slot to be displayed on the Gantt chart.

Available Functionalities

1. Edit the production order start date/date and duration

  • Drag the Start and End Date of a Production Order:

To edit the start and end time of a production order, 'click and hold' the production order you want to re-schedule and drag it to the desired date. You can also enter the production order by clicking on its bar.

  • Alter the duration of a production Order:

If you want to increase/decrease the production order duration, you can also do it by expanding/shrinking its bar size on both borders. See the image below:

Depending on the production order status, they can have multiple colors to help differentiate their progress. Their meaning is detailed below:

  • In Progress: There are open production records in that production order.

  • Completed: All units on the production order have been completed.

  • Delayed: The production order end date is in the past, and not all units have been completed.

  • Scheduled: The production order end date is in the future and not all its units have been completed.
