Understanding your capacities/constraints is paramount in maximising efficiencies in your business.
In the job checklist you can adjust the amount of staff working on each operation of that job. Changing this will affect scheduling. You may want to change this if you have multiple jobs with similar schedules.
For Operations longer than the Labour Centres “Staff hours per day” the target date will now populate from the Target Date backwards. The example shown below is for an Operation that has been estimated at 45.3 Hrs. This is broken up into segments reflecting what can be done each day by the settings in the Labour Center and the amount of staff assigned in the checklist.
Days can be adjusted from left to right by click on the bottom of the Operation and dragging. The Operation to the right will automatically adjust to compensate. Repeat as required.
There are many examples of why you might need to Split an Operation. To do this simply right-click on the operation and Split.
There are several features combined with dragging operations around.
Having the Long Term Capacity Planner open in another window/screen or tab and using the refresh button will update Capacity Planning so that you can see changes made in the Target Calendar.
