Shop Control

Shop control is used to execute the master schedule. Jobs are released to production in the correct order of multi-level assembly based on material availability. Job sequences are assigned to workers in job priority order within work centers. Materials are issued to jobs in real time and job labor is updated as job sequences are finished. Subcontract service POs are generated and received in real time as needed. Finished items are received to stock and jobs are closed to complete the job processing cycle.
