Job Card Device is missing functionality to manage Process Manufacturing and other functions included with Job Card Terminal
The touch screen functionality of the Job Card Device and ease of use provides enhanced application needed for Shop Floor, however, the current design is limited and will need further enhancements to meet very important business requirements.
Customer has identified the following requirements (most available with job card terminal which is meant to be replaced):
-Ability to RAF
-Ability to change batch disposition status / inventory status when RAF
-Edit job list
-Ability to print pick list
-Non conformance creation
-Quality order creation
-View Balance and Log Book
You could take a break and log back in immediately to bring back to System Waiting. So there's no Standard solution to stop indirect activity and start a new production Job or Project Job directly.

Some of the manufacturing companies require the possibility to print BOM information when releasing production orders, similarly as route card information can be printed. After printing on paper, this documentation is then sent to production floor. The production BOM will provide an overview of the parts and the afferent quantity needed to assembly finished goods. This overview is used as information by production workers to assembly the main products.
It would be great advantage to be able to not only report a good quantity as finished with the mobile device menu items "Report as finish" and "Report as finish and put away", but also be able to report a scrap quantity at the same time.
The handling/posting of the material for the scrap quantity should then be executed exactly in the same way as it is already done when you report as finish from the Client and enter the scrap quantity there.
To say it in simply words, what works from the client should also be supported from the scanner!
Thank you very much!
In the proces industry we are often using the flushing principle "Avaliable on location". We also use staging concept and pick complete LP´s to the prod in location. However due to yield and over and under production we are not always consuming according to work and we want to return from line and "unpick" the quantity from the prodution order. I image a new mobil menu item "Retur from line" and then being able to key bin the LP and quantity and then have the system suggesting the original pick location. Once the return fro line has been ended, the pick list will have a inverser pick list with correct set of dimensions. We see this as a mobile app feature because this is not done in the back office.
In accounts receivable there is a parameter "Picking route status" is set to "complete" it will perform the pick as part of the "Generate picking list" function.
A function is required on the picking list form in production orders to perform the same functionality.
E.g. I have 70 lines on the production order and I do not want to pick each line separately.
The business requires that all items are configured with an item model group where "picking requirement" is ticked.
Exceptions in the process will be handled by un-picking a line.
The suggestion will improve productivity.
The current estimation process takes the cost of sub-contracting items from the manage cost tab of the released product card.
In scenarios where the sub-contracting cost fluctuates significantly from one production order to another this feature becomes non-manageable. It would be more suitable to take the sub-contracting cost from the related purchase order for the sub-contracting item when estimating the cost of a production order.
When the user creates a routing for site 1, and gets to the "resource reqs" tab, he can only pick resource groups from site 1.
But if he picks resources, he can easily put a resource from another site in !
This is allowed by the system but it creates showstopping error during scheduling with the general error "no capacity can be found".
Suggestion here is to have a warning message of the type 'red' (showstop) when the user makes the mistake (it is really a mistake) to select a resource from another site in the routing.
Currently, the bulk item must directly exist in the packed item formula lines. This assumes a single level formula structure. I would like this feature extended to support phantoms - where D3fO will look to additional Formula levels to extract the bulk item.
Overproduction with raw material used frequently on the production line
Customer don't know the output from production orders upfront (it varies), ie they calculate with 50 kg of finished goods (production order quantity), but in the end the output could be 60 kg of finished goods.
The overproduced quantity should be reflected in extra raw-material consumption needed.
When supplying material to the line (raw material picking) the customer always supply full pallets (staging concept) which should cover for the unknown extra demand of raw material. The raw material supply to the line is used frequently on the line.
Issue with current support: When processing the production wave, unreserved material on the production input location is always selected first (and reserved against formula lines)
Idea: Setting on the production wave to be able to control if unreserved material on production input location should be taken into account first or last when calculating quantity to supply to the line.
Example: Precondition – raw material 1 included in production wave template with setting to select unreserved material on production input location at last.
Production order 1 has a demand of 50 kg of raw material 1. LP quantity is 100 kg. Processing the wave will create work of 100 kg, leaving 50 kg unreserved on the line (using staging). Production order 2 also has a demand of 50 kg of raw material 1. When calculating demand for this production order 2 a new LP (100 kg) is supplied to the line without taken into account the unreserved material on the line, leaving 50 kg again unreserved.
The scenarios will require a line clearance (back to main warehouse) on a regular basis.
