WIP Shift Patterns

The WIP Shift Patterns feature lets you establish schedules with different activities for work centers and machines within manufacturing and distribution facilities. Previously, you were restricted to allocating a full day for a specific activity.

Shift patterns can be defined at various levels (i.e. company, site, work center, production line, warehouse or machine) and a work day can have multiple shifts with different start and end times to accommodate shift requirements.

Allocating maintenance times ensures that machine time can't be booked for production time (i.e. avoids different activities coinciding at the same time on the same machine).
