Shop Floor Work Centers connect to existing Business Central Work Centers or Business Central Machine Centers. These are used for capturing information for Production Orders, such as recording productive time to production orders, rework time, recording manual output, recording manual consumption, and using the scheduling feature.
If you do not plan on capturing data from the shop floor for Business Central production orders, then you do not need to create work centers.
You only need to create Shop Floor Work Centers for those Business Central Work Centers or Business Central Machine Centers that you plan on using in the Shop Floor interface.
Shop Floor Work centers also allow configuration to automatically split time, as well as advanced costing options outside of the scope of this document.
As a pre-requisite to setup in this section you must already have Business Central machine centers or Business Central work centers configured.
