F0032 - Treat future Outwork orders as WO option in MRP processing

Date: 1 Aug 2001, version: 1.0107, rating: 20, platforms: All

Description: We have to flag our machined parts as outwork assembly type, not make type because we review our shop floor capacity weekly before deciding whether to raise a work order or Outwork PO. Unfortunately we cannot review our capacity based on MRP recommendations for these parts because the recommendations are to create an Outwork PO, and do not show as load on our internal work centres in capacity planning. An MRP processing option has been added to treat furture recommended outwork orders as work orders. This enables you to review capacity and subsequently descide which orders to outsource.

Get around: None

Date: 3 Aug 2001, version: 1.0107, rating: 30, platforms: All

Also operates when re-building the keyword data file but that is limited to a single segment only.

Date: 22 Aug 2001, version: 1.0111, rating: 20, platforms: All

Description: The new "Update from Internet" is a great enhancement and saves lots of grief with FTP software. Two things would make this easier: 1. It would be nice if the download window had a progress bar so that one could be sure something was happening - This is not practical. 2. An option to download the latest WishBug file as I'm finding that I need to always go and get this file to find out what has changed. {Previously: R0044}

F0040 - Work Orders can be ordered Kit then Route and include QA section

Date: 12 Nov 2001, version: 1.0116, rating: 30, platforms: All

Description: Work Orders now have a design alternative of putting the kit first then the route. A third section-set for the QA Test Regime can also included as a final section. This is illustrated with a new example Work Order class rWorkOrderQA. To use this before version 1.02, after upgrade copy the rWorkOrderQA class from Vision into your OpenVision and then proceed as normal to create your own version. The control of the Kit- Route and the QA is achieved by calculating two variables iKitFirst and iListQA in the $construct method to kTrue (the default to kFalse). For the QA Tests to print the WO assy must have a regime set up. Old WO design remain compatible.

Date: 15 Nov 2001, version: 1.0200, rating: 20, platforms: All

Description: Parts may be created in Caliach with very few specifications in place and frequently are, to allow commercial paperwork to be processed. However, manufacture should not be allowed to proceed before the full specifications are in place. Therefore we request that an option should be provided to prevent the issue of Work Orders for any part which does not have 1. formula (assembly); 2. process route; 3.
