8.03 Resource Groups vs. 6.1 Work Centers

You need a resource group and a resource. We don't sure scheduling so
keep this in mind. But you don't have to link a group or resource to an
operation so you don't need a unique one. You have to add the assembly
op, then give the op a resource group and resource. You could have assy
be op 10 on every job and have assy. as the resource group and assy. as
the resource. No big deal. If you have a question shot me an email off
list and we can get together.

Subject: [Vantage] 8.03 Resource Groups vs. 6.1 Work Centers



For anyone live with or testing on data converted from 6.1 to 8.xx,
you've probably found this already particulary if you use job costing
and/or job scheduling. All BOMS need to be redone as the converted
ones do not work well. I'm hoping someone has begun re-building the
BOMs and may be able to answer this question. In 6.1 I have just one
operation for assy which was used by all my boms for all work centers
that do assembly. But so far it looks like I'll need a unique
assembly operation for each work center (now called Resource Groups) -
is that the way they should be set up?
