Routings are used to configure each Operation used within a Manufacturing Production.
Navigating the Manufacturing Routings window
Manufacturing Routings is located on the Sequence Editor
Configure a Routing using the tabs on the Part Number window
Use the icons at the bottom to edit or add Routings
Routings are stored in the Parts List table, and are nested at one level below Part Numbers.
In the Parts List, double click on an existing Part Number, and go to the Routings tab.
It's important to add a routing using this process, as this establishes the link between the top-level part number, and the routing part number.
Once the routing has been added, it will have no operations defined, you can create a new operation list for the routing, or copy it from another part number.
Releasing a Routing
As well as releasing a sequence, you can also release a routing for a part number.
You access this function from the same window as Releasing Sequences:
Sequencer Editor > Edit > Edit Sequence Revisions, then click on Release Parts
Select a part number to load up it's Routing, you can then select which operations to release - this will mean the sequence revision that runs for the operation cannot be changed (although you can De-Release, to change the sequence revision).
Instead of creating new routings each time, you can simply copy the same routing from one part number to another, or to multiple part numbers. This saves time and ensures consistency across different parts.
Use the filter option to narrow down your search.
Select all the rows that are required to copy to another Part Number.
