Scheduling Rule Card

You are here:

The MxAPS Scheduling Rule Card page allows you to define the parameters, processing order, and rule logic of a scheduling rule. Scheduling rules define the way operations of production orders are sequenced within each production cell to create a pick list for the scheduling engine. The parameters of the rule are considered attributes of the operations on production order routing lines.

The scheduling rules are hierarchical and considered in ascending processing order. For example, if you create a rule using Due Date in an ascending sequence with processing order 10 and then Operation Number ascending with processing order 20, the system first organizes production order operations into groups or buckets based on ascending due date, and then sorts by ascending operation number within each bucket’s due date.
