I am using MS DAX 2009 5.0.15 and need better understanding of the relationship of these three in order to set up work centers and routes for items with formulas and then do cost rollups of items (individually and by groups) to include labor and overhead. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Your "route" is the path a product takes through the manufacturing process. This could be "Saw", "Machine", "Weld" and "Paint" for example. Each of these "steps" is an "Operation" and will have time associated with it and a "Work Centre" which is where the work is undertaken.
This means a portion of the route (end to end to convert raw material into a finished product) is an operation, so you "Weld" and this operation is performed in a particular place (your work centre) and will have associated timings and costs.

This forum post is my own opinion and does not necessarily reflect the opinion or view of my employer, Microsoft, its employees, or other MVPs.
In production process Route is sequence of Operation and Work Centres are locations where operations will be carried out.
All there are required to be setup of better accounting of Production Process
WIP (Work In Progress) is calculated with the help of these setups
