I have been looking in to how to best group together production orders with similar properties. I have a customer who does metal fabrication and I need to be able to group together productions with the same sheet metal thickness when planning. I know Axtension has a very good solution for this, but it looks to be a solution to this somewhere under the hood in standard AX as well.
There is a feature for sequencing together productions with similar properties, but this looks to only be available for formula items. I cannot see why BOM items cannot be planned to a similar principal. Why the restriction?
I’ve looked in to properties, but it looks to only be handled for concrete time slots for work time in the calendar…
Does anyone here know of a good method to do this type of grouping when planning productions for standard BOM items?
There is something called "Finite Property" Scheduling. You can read more about this in the below article.
Hello Fredrik, Did you ever find a solution for your customer's requirements?
I am facing exactly the same issue with the same sheet metal thickness and tube diameter scenario . I thought sequencing would work as it seemed the perfect solution but as you said, you can only associate a sequencing ID with a 'formula' item.
Well... Kind of...
There is a great ISV solution from AXtension that can do the grouping based on attributes on the produced item. Advanced manufacturing or something. Not the visual planning, though that is also pretty cool.
I went for the manual approach.
Use the properties field on the finished item to reflect the raw material. In my case the customer used the thickness of the steel plates (4mm, 6mm, 10mm...).
Then just sort of filter production orders, tick the check boxes and run planning first on one thickness and then on another.
