Repeating Operations Not Wanted

Each subassembly is machining a separate piece, isn't that right? Now
you may be running both sub assembly parts together at the same time. In
that case you would not have actual set-up time on the second assembly,
but the setup is there in case you don't. In that situation you are
setting the machine up twice. You want to allow for that in your
schedule and your estimated cost.

For all practical purposes, the grey matter on the floor should be
running both pieces back-to-back so you don't encounter the additional
setup time. Sometimes that is not possible.

Subject: [Vantage] Repeating Operations Not Wanted

There has been some concern about operations and the bill structure.
Within a top assembly there is usually two main sub-assemblies.
Normally these two sub-assemblies have the same parts other than maybe
one or two components. Here is the problem, when the routings are
printed out they list all the operations for one sub-assembly then
re-list the same operations for the second sub-assembly. So the
operator is doubling his/her efforts when machining parts, because
they are setting up the machine twice for the same part.

Has anyone else ran across this?
