QuickWIP provides an easy way quickly enter actual start/stop time on a routing sequence, or to just mark a sequence as Done when it is completed, without having to enter all of the data required by the WIP Data Collection window in Manufacturing. The WIP Data Entry window requires entering a number of fields that are not essential if the purpose is only to track the status of a routing sequence.
Navigation: Tools >> Setup >> Manufacturing >> MFG PowerPack Setup
Mark the box next to “QuickWIP*”.
Double-click on “QuickWIP*” to open the QuickWIP User Defined setup window.
Create labels for the user defined fields. Only fields with labels will be editable on the QuickWIP window.
The data for the User Defined fields is stored in existing manufacturing table fields (discussed below).
Navigation: Transactions >> Manufacturing >> QuickWIP. Also from the Additional Menu on Manufacturing Order Routing View (Inquiry >> Manufacturing >> Manufacturing Orders >> Routing View).
MO Number: enter an MO Number, or select one from the Lookup.
Sequence: after selecting an MO Number the window will display the first Sequence. Scroll to other Routing Sequences, or enter the Sequence.
Data Entry Fields: the dates, times, quantities, and Done box are all informational and have no effect on costing.
Start Time Button: Clicking the Green Start Button fills the Start Date/Time with the current Date/Time.
Stop Time Button: Clicking the Red Stop Button fills the Stop Date/Time with the current Date/Time.
QuickWIP should only be used with routings that have backflushed labor and machine time. QuickWIP updates tables that store summary records of the WIP data, which does not affect costing, but could be overwritten if the Manufacturing WIP Data Collection window is also used.
Working Routing (WR010130): The User Defined fields are stored in the following fields:
- UDF1 = CLOSEDBY_I
- UDF2 = TOOLID_I
- UDF3 = TAPENUMBER_I
- UDF4 = USERDEF1
- UDF5 = USERDEF2.
The Start/Stop Date/Time will be set with whatever information is displayed on the window. Since there is only one record for the routing sequence in this table, each time you click Save with the same Routing Sequence, it will update the previous record. Marking Done does not have any effect on the ability to enter/update/change data on the current, prior or subsequent Sequences.
Data Collection Master (SF010014): one record is added for each Routing Sequence.
Data Collection Line (SF010115): Each time the Save Button is clicked a new record is created in the Data Collection Line table (SF010115). This table stores the Start/Stop Date/Time, Elapsed Time, Pieces Completed and Rejected, as well as the Change Date and User ID. The Employee ID and Labor Code are set to QUICKWIP.
ICJC_DataCollection_Link (ICJC5000): a new record will be added to this table for each new start/stop date/time combination (there will be one record for each pair of Start/Stop Date/Time records. In practice this means a new record is created when you:
- Click the Start Button (or enter a Start Time) and click Save
- Click the Stop Button (or enter a Stop Time) and click Save.
