(Figure 23) Special Operation

 

 

In Work Order Plus, every action is defined as a 4-digit number so operators can use this number to report their time.  This number is a routing operation number for all actions directly related to production.  For actions not directly related to production, it is a Special Operation.  In the Labor Performance module, this kind of code is called an Indirect Code.  So, the operator will enter an ID and password and a special operation number to report a break, but the time reported would never be absorbed into any production.

 


Entry Field Descriptions

 

Name

Type and Description

1. Operation Number

4 numeric digits.

 

Enter a number for this Special Operation.  The Special Operation number should be 9000 or greater since 0 through 8999 are reserved for routing operations.  Numbers 9000 through 9499 are reserved for system-defined special operations that are built into the system and cover all the basics, like break (9020), meal break (9040), and end of day log off (9030).  You can create new special operations by using numbers 9500 through 9999.

2. Operation Type

1 alpha-numeric character.

 

Enter a type for the operation.  User-defined operations (from 9500 to 9999) can only use “P” and “N” types.

 

Options

P      - Productive type.  Time an operator contributes to this type of activity will be regarded as productive, ex. machine maintenance.

N      - Non-Productive type.  Time an operator contributes to this type of activity will be regarded as non-productive.

L      - Logon type.  This type of operation logs the operator onto the system.

B      - Break type.  This type of operation represents a payable break.

M      - Meal Break type.  This type of break represents a non-payable break.  An operator taking a meal break is regarded as logged off the system, but not left for the day.

E      - End of Day type.  This type of special operation is used when operators are leaving the facilities for the day.  The operator will be logged off the system.

D      - Monitor Department type.  This type of special operation allows the operator to change the time reported into shared labor for a specified department.

W     - Monitor Work Center type.  This type of special operation allows the operator to change the time reported into shared labor for a specified work center.

3. Description

30 alpha-numeric characters.

 

Enter a description for this special operation.

4. Obsolete?

“Y” or “N”.

 

Enter the obsolete status of this operation.  An obsolete operation will not be an option for the operator to choose.  Some of the system-defined special operations can be obsolete.

5. Prompt for Pre-Comment?

“Y” or “N”.

 

Enter whether to prompt for a comment when the operation is started.  For “L” type special operations the system will prompt for a comment when the operator logs on.  For “W” and “D” types the system will prompt for a comment when the operator clocks in to a work center or a department.

6. Prompt for Post-Comment?

“Y” or “N”.

 

Enter whether to prompt for a comment when the operation has ended.  For “E” type special operations the system will prompt for a comment when the operator logs off.  For “W” and “D” types the system will prompt for a comment when the operator clocks out from a work center or department.

 

Addition information about system-defined operations:

  • The Operator can never select “Logon” (9010).  This operation only serves to determine if the operator needs to enter a logon comment.  The system can automatically logon the operator when first clocking into the system.
  • Only “B”(Break), “P”(Productive) and “N”(Non-Productive) operation types are available in the Operator Time Clock.  “L”(Logon), “M”(Meal Break), “E”(End of Day), “W”(Monitor Work Center) and “D”(Department) operation types are used for special functions and not recording time.
  • Only 9050(Non-Productive) and 9060(Productive) of the system-defined operations can be obsolete.

 

Note: The Edit List can print a barcode of the operation number for all selected operations.
