The setup time and the run time from secondary operations are considering the load.

When you define a load on the secondary operation, both time (setup and run time) are considering the load during estimation. That means the calculated setup time and the calculated run time is a percentage of the setup time/run time of the primary operation.

Our customer except for another behavior. Normally an operator is needed to 100% during the setup process. During the running process, he can operate several machines in parallel. That means the setup time should be 100% of the setup time (primary operation) and the run time should consider the load.

Current behavior:

  • for primary operation the setup time is defined as 1 hour and the run-time is defined as 5 hours for 1 process qty:
  • and in the secondary operation the setup and run-time are blank and resource load= 50%
  • when we create and estimate the production order, the system estimates the production order time as per below.

That means both times are considering the load.

Expected result:

  • Setup time for human resources and Machines same = 1 (right now system updates runtime with 0.5 value which is the wrong behavior as per the business process)
  • and Run time = 10*50% = 5

Thank you for your feedback.

Currently this is not in our roadmap; however, we are tracking it and if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future.
