Scanning onto More than One Job
The factory barcode scanning system does not allow a person to be scanned onto more than one job at one time - it automatically scans off the last process when the employee scans onto the next process.
There is an alternative method in the factory and WIP in the main system which allows the user to enter a job # and click start/end to selected processes on that job as they require - this does allow a user to record time against more than one job at a time
Also the schedule view in the factory allows more than one process to be worked on at one time
Batching a Process
It is understood that some times a person will ‘batch’ a process so that
a given process if being done for many jobs at the same time. There is a system that allows multiple jobs to be scanned into a process and the total time will be ammortised acrossed each job equally
