Advance routing supports the modelling of complex manufacturing operations, where routes are dynamic or conditional such as routing to a rework or repair process when certain quality tests have failed.
- Key functions:
- The same operation may be “visited” many times by the same item or job if required
- Advance routes can “jump” to other lines and back again, for example, to have a rework processed carried out
- Permits the “teardown” of a parent item into numerous child items (for example, when a batch is initially processed as a whole, but subsequently gets broken down into discrete items for individual processing)
