Once a Part Routing has been setup, you'll need to add a Manufacturing Routing for it, from the Sequence Editor > Manufacturing Routings tab.

From the Works Orders screen, select the orders to change, then click on the Change Routing button.

This loads up a screen where you can change which Product Routing to use.


You will be able to see which Parts Routing a product executed from it's Product Report, in the Summary section.
