Routings are stored in the PartsList table, and are nested at one level below PartNumbers.

They are designed so that users can have different sequences for different versions of a part number, but that results are stored under the same top level part number.

Add Routing to a Part Number

In the Parts List, double click on an existing Part Number, and go to the Routings tab.


To add a new routing, press the + Add button at the bottom of the Routings table, here you can set the name of the new Routing.


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 added, the new part number will be displayed in the Parts List (currently only after a refresh - exiting the Parts List window, then re-opening).


Adding Operations to a New Routing

Open the Parts Lookup to add operations and sequences to the new routing, the new routing part number. When you select a part number, routings will be nested below the top-level 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.

To copy, select a part that has an operation list defined.


Then click on the Copy To button,


This will copy the operations and sequences to the new Routing.


Once this is done, you are free to update the operations and sequences used in the new routing.

Loading Routing Serial Numbers

Once you are ready to release the new routing for production, you will need to include both the Part Number, and the Routing when importing works orders & serial numbers.


Running a Production Sequence

When an operator runs a production sequence, all they will see will be the top-level part number and the serial number - they will not be aware that a different routing has been used.

You can see what routing has been used on the Product Report > Summary tab.
