Segment Codes

You are here:

The MxAPS Segment Codes page allows you to configure the available segment codes. Segments (e.g., Setup and Run) are considered the smallest individual steps in the processing of an operation. They represent the required tasks on a machine center to successfully complete an operation.

If you add new segment codes and want to use them in place of the default Setup or Run, change the values in Setup Segment Code or Run Segment Code on the MxAPS setup page. You must also change the Filter statement in the styles section of the Graphical Scheduler configuration for existing Graphical Scheduler views.

Note: This version of MxAPS currently only reads production times from the Setup Time and Run Time fields of a production order routing line. Unless a custom code unit provides rates of production for new segment codes you have created, there is no reason to define more than two segments to represent a setup time and a run time as there is no default mechanism in place to use them.
