For items you can setup a flushing principle, e.g. Start or Finish, but on resources, you can only setup IF it should be flushed (using the Route group).

Even if you set resources to be automatically consumed, it doesn't work if you do report as finished using the Report as Finished journal.

My suggestion is:

1) For each "time type" (Setup time, run time, quantity) instead of have a no/yes slider, have an enum for Manual, Start and Finish, like for the flushing principle on the item master.

2) Keeping it on the route group is fine, but it could be considered moved to the Resource Group and the Resource (defaultet from the Resource group).

3) Using the function Production control -> Production order -> Process -> Report as Finished you can setup a route cards journal and whether resources should be flushed - the same functionality should be available using the Production control -> View -> Journals -> Report as finished, pressing New.

4) And finally the logic for creating and posting the route card with the resource consumption based on the finished quantity.

I see an issue in "Setup time" as this should propably only be posted on the first rep.as.fin on the specific resource.

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.
