Work Instructions can also show additional time details that provide insight into the production order routing as a whole beyond just the individual time card line details.
To configure, on the Shop Floor Setup change “Work Instructions Time” to “Show Prod. Order Time Details”.
When you do enable “Show Prod. Order Time Details” it will show both estimated times (if available) and actual times (if available) for the production order and operation that others have also worked on.
The following information will be displayed (values set to zero will be omitted):
The “Current” fields can be useful to give an understanding of overall time elapsed that is not yet clocked off.
Likewise “Work Instructions Quantities” can be shown. To enable this feature set “Work Instructions Quantities” to “Show Prod. Order Quantities”.
When “Work Instructions Quantities” is enabled, additional information is displayed in the Work Instructions box.
