Dynamic Timing

Dynamic Timing enables you to update production order start times based on a change to another production order. If you run a 24 hour brewery, you need to schedule each production order and have changes to one PdO affect all future production orders. The Dynamic Timing function will update the start time of production orders in the future (within a limited time frame) based on a change to a PdO start time that precedes it.

Initial Setup:

Warehouse Interval Setup: This is what tells the system how much time to add to each production order.

  1. Click on Administration → Inventory Folder → Warehouses (Fig. 1)
         Tip: Be sure 'User Defined Fields' are displayed. 
  2. Switch to 'Find' Mode by click on the Binoculars or Control+F on your keyboard, then search for the warehouse that you are brewing into.
  3. On the right hand side of the screen, locate warehouse interval, and put in the interval of your brew house in HOURS. (Fig. 2)

Item Master Data Setup: This sets up the interval used in planning your production on the Production Order Creation Wizard

  1. Locate your 'Wort' items (generally starts with 'w')
         Tip: Again be sure 'User Defined Fields' are displayed
  2. Open your wort item and input the Lead Minutes/Lead Hours for each turn. (Fig. 3)

 

How do I use it?

  1. Open the Brew Sheet, and open the first production order you want to change. Change the Production Time and click Update.
  2. Select the production order you just updated and click under Timing (Fig. 4)

 

Other Information:

 

  • The system only moves wort items located on the Brew Sheet
  • Dynamic Timing is set at the warehouse level only
  • Timing is currently set to move forward up to 10 days
  • Dynamic Timing does roll over to the following day
