Implement Manufacturing process

Let’s take a look at the following example to see how work centers and work orders are applied to the process of manufacturing Table:

  • Work Centers

    • Assembly team: 10 person

      • Time Efficiency: 100%;

      • OEE Target: 90%;

      • Regulated working time: 40 hours/week, 8 hours/day;

      • Cost per hour: 500.000 VND/hour.

    • Spray paint team: 3 persons

      • Time Efficiency: 100%;

      • OEE Target: 90%;

      • Regulated working time: 40 hours/week, 8 hours/day;

      • Cost per hour: 300.000 VND/hour.

  • Operations

    • Spray paint operation:

      • Time: Time: On average, it takes 30 minutes for 01 person to spay paint a table.

    • Assembly operation (this operation will be operate after Spray paint operation):

      • Time: On average, it takes 15 minutes for 01 person to assemble a table.

  • Bills of Material for Table:

    • Table top: 1 unit;

    • Table legs: 4 units;

    • Nail: 10 units;

    • Screw: 12 units;

    • Spray Paint (Pink): 0,1 liter.

Configure Work Centers

To create 2 work centers Assembly and Spray paint team, you go to Manufacturing ‣ Configuration ‣ Work Centers, click onting Create to create a new work center:

Configure Work Centers

Then, fulfill the information below:

Work Centers in details
  • General Information:

    • Work Center Name: Name of the work center;

    • Alternative Workcenters: Choose the work center replacing this work center in case it is used to execute other work orders;

    • Code: Fulfill the code for the above work center;

    • Working Hours: Select working hours for the work center. The working hours are the foundation to make work orders for the work centers;

  • Production Information:

    • Time Efficiency: Time efficiency is calculated by %. The figure is a basis for calculating the expected time of a work order. For example: With a time efficiency of 100%, this work center can manufacture 1 unit of product in 1 hour. If the time efficiency is 200%, it means that 1 unit of product can be manufactured in 30 minutes;

    • Capacity: The capacity of the work center. It means the number of units that can be produced in parallel from this work center. For example: A employee of the assembly team can assemble 1 desk in 1 hour, but in a team with 10 people working at the same time, the capacity of the team will make 10 working tables in 1 hour;

    • OEE Target: You can declare metrics to check the Overall Effective Efficiency of the work center is;

    • Time before producing: Time in minutes for the setup before utilizing the work center such as the preparing or warm up before running;

    • Time after producing: Essential time in minutes after utilizing the work center such as the cleaning time after utilizing.

  • Costing Information:

    • Cost per hour: Cost of the work center per hour.

  • Description: Fulfill with the detailed description of the work center.

At each work center, you can see the statistical reports as follows:

The statistical reports of the work centers
  • OEE: Performance report of the work center;

  • Lost: Report of the duration of the performance loss and the reasons for the performance loss during manufacturing execution;

  • Load: Report of the executed duration of the work center;

  • Performance: Report about the performance of the work center.

Configure Operations

With 2 manufacturing operations as Assembly Table and Spray paint, you navigate to Manufacturing ‣ Configuration ‣ Operations, click onting Create to create an operation.

Configure manufacturing operation

Then, fulfill the information below:

Manufacturing operation information
  • Operation: Name of the manufacturing operation;

  • Work Center: Select the work centers that execute the manufacturing operation;

  • Bill of Material: Select the bill of the material linked to the operation;

  • Duration Computation:

    • Compute based on tracked time: Compute based on tracked time: If checked, the system will automatically calculate based on the actual time data of the declared number of work orders. For example: You can choose to compute based on the 5 nearest finished worker orders;

    • Set duration manually: If checked, you will be allowed to set the estimated duration manually for the operation.

  • Default Duration: Declare the estimated time for this operation. In the above example, it is 15 minutes;

  • Work Sheet: Select the format of the drawing/instruction file uploaded for the operation;

  • Description: Fulfill with the detailed description of this operation.

How to apply Work Centers, Operations and Bills of Materials

After configuring work centers and operations, navigate to Manufacturing ‣ Products ‣ Bills of Materials, choose the above selected BoM, at the Components, you will see the bills of materials that you configured.

Components comsumed in the manufacturing operation

In addition, on the Operations tab, you can see the manufacturing operation where the components of the materials to be consumed.

Apply the bills of materials

Create the Manufacturing Orders

You can navigate to Production ‣ Operations ‣ Manufacturing Orders to create a new manufacturing order for Table:

Create a manufacturing order

The information to set up the manufacturing order includes:

  • Product: Choose the product as Table;

  • Quantity: Fulfill the number of product;

  • Bill of Material: Select the Bills of materials for the product. When selected, the information of components of bills of materials will be automatically suggested in the Components tab;

  • Scheduled Date: Scheduled date at which you plan to start the manufacturing operation.

The detailed manufacturing order

Click on Confirm and Plan for the manufacturing order.

Create a manufacturing order

You will then be able to track the status, scheduled start date, expected duration and real duration for each manufacturing operation in the Work Orders tab.
