Capacity Planning


AX 4.0

I have single workcentergroup (A) with attached 3 workcenters (B,C,D) in this group. I have defined 3 qty of workcenter in route to allocate the multiple workcenters when we run the master plan. Now when I check the results in plan orders it shows like this

 Operation Priority  Workcenter   Start time End time 
  10  Primary       B     10:00   20:00 
  10  Primary       B     10:00   20:00 
  10  Primary       B     10:00   20:00 

 Logically  instated B Workcenter on the 2nd and 3rd line, it should have to show C and D Workcenter.

I am using Finite capacity.

Can anyone please tell that what setup I am missing to get Workcenter C and D in 2nd and 3rd line.

  • Can you post a screen shot of your route, and where you have selected finite scheduling? Work centre, master plan, etc. Version 4 is now 10+ years old so seeing it may assist.

    Thanks for reply Adam

    Yes I have activated finite Capacity on Work center, Master plan and production.

    Please check the attached screenshot of the route and generated plan orders.

    You need to strip it back - take the load restriction out at 33%, not sure why you have that when it is group scheduling at that level. I cannot see the WCG configuration or the WC configuration, but assuming you have this working in another setup for 4.0 I suggest you review the differences. No access to an AX4.0 system so difficult to advise.

    I have check this by updating load100%. but this time I am getting this error " "The referenced work center cannot comply with the work center quantity requirement of the route.
    I also have created WCG and WC manually to check the same issue with same setup and it's working fine.
    Now I have the same setup for the old and new WCG & WC but I still have the same problem for the old WCG & WC.

    You will have to get a developer to debug it, or hope someone on here has access to AX4
