Grouping parts with same assemblies for production

Jase,
I am not sure this is exactly what you are looking for, but in the method
for the master part, you can go down to the subass in question and remove
the checkbox that says PULL AS ASSY.
This way, it will not process the build as part of the order for the master
part, but as a demand link for the subass itself. So, let's say that if you
were building a part that required subA, and you want to buiild 5 every time
you have to stop to build at least one, MRP would generate the suggestion
for the 5 (as stated in the plant record for the tab).

I would venture to say this could be done if the planning days was far
enough out and on all master assemblies, the sub assy has PULL AS ASSY
unchecked. - worth a shot.

Hope this helps.
Carey

Hi All,
We are running Vantage 8.00.809d.
Some of our parent part numbers use the same or similar subassemblies.
When MRP runs, is there any way that the system will schedule these
part numbers together to save machine setups? For instance, if part x
and part y have the same sub assemblies but different raw materials,
will the system schedule part x and y to run one after another, or will
we have to manually change the schedule for this to happen?
Thanks, Jase.

Since MRP creates an unfirm job and scheduling is based upon the job
priority (MRP being normal) and the due date, if the subassemblies are
similar and due the same day, its possible that it could happen. It's
also just as likely that a firm job could get in the middle of them.
Hello,



From our testing, MRP is driven solely by dates and does not care about
what part is needed or optimizing setup times.

You will need to manually schedule these jobs if you want a specific
order other than what MRP suggests.
