Machine Transfers

You are here:

The Machine Transfers page allows you to define transfer or move times between work centers or machine centers. MxAPS considers the move or transfer times between operations of a production order based on the work centers or machine centers involved (unlike Business Central using the operation level move time). For example, equipment that is physically close may have lower move times than equipment on the facility’s opposite end.

Create a move or transfer time

  1. Choose the equipment type (e.g., work center or machine center).
  2. Enter the duration to move the from equipment to the to equipment.
