Understanding your capacities/constraints is paramount in maximising efficiencies in your business. Jobman can automate this process from the quote where labour operations can be assigned to products and when turned into a job will auto-populate the Jobs “Operations” time that it should take. This data can be seen in Jobman’s Checklist functionality.
This will auto-populate Jobman’s Target Calendar? The screenshot below shows how Jobman automatically divides the operation into working hour days and sets the target day as the parent and then assigns hours above normal working hours to the previous day. You can also assign teams to operations where multiple people can be assigned to an operation.
To set the above behaviour correctly we will have to set up the Labour Centre.
With Capacity Planning turned on, some new fields and tabs will be populated in the Labour Centre such as Capacity by Day and Capacity Date Range.Number of Staff
If one day a week there are less hours worked due to longer hours worked during the rest of the week ie Mon-Thurs 7.8 hours are done rather than 7.6 hr days so that Friday is two hours less, then Capacity By Day can be an override to the settings pictured above.
If a person is going on leave or a machine will be out of action for servicing, then an override can be set to reflect the reduced capacity.
The total capacity for that labour centre is calculated by the number of staff multiplied by the hours per day.
The amount of staff that you have working on each operation is set in the operation type as shown below.
