Creating New Versions of Routings

The version principle enables you to manage several versions of a routing. The structure of the routing version corresponds to the structure of the routing consisting of the routing version header and the routing version lines. The basic difference is defined by the starting date.

To Create New Versions of Routings:

  1. Open the Routing List window. Select the routing to be edited, and then click OK.

  2. In the Routing window, click Routing, Versions.

  3. On the menu bar, click Edit, Insert New, and then press Enter. A new version of the routing (from which the function was called) is created.

  4. In the Version Code field, you enter the unique identification of the version. Any combination of numbers and letters is permitted.

    The newly created version is automatically assigned the status New.

  5. To create operations (lines), position the cursor on the version lines. Fill in the Operation No. field according to the sequence of operations. The operation lines are sorted in ascending order by operation numbers. To be able to make changes later, we recommend you to select adequate step widths.

    The Next Operation No. field refers to the following operation. The number of the operation can be entered directly. (Not all fields are displayed in the default setup of this window. To display more fields, use the Show Column function.)

    The correct sequence of operations is checked when setting the status to Certified.

  6. Fill in the fields. Some of the fields are filled in automatically when the machine or work center is entered.

    For Help about a specific field, click the field and press F1.

You can enter comments for each operation and assign tools, personnel and quality measures in the same way as you do for routings.
