Bundled production and redistribution of job time
When a bundled production run is finished, The spend time needs to be distributed back to the originating (different) production order routing lines.
2 different principles apply you can read about below.
Where can the different Allocation Methods be used advantageously
Actual time in relation to the expected standard operating time
You can benefit from using this method, in case that several productions are processing at the same time as a family, and where productions are processing simultaneously. In case of reporting partial completion, the total time will not be allocated to the product that has been reported as partial completed, until the end of the production. Typically reporting partial completion will result from an urgent order.
Actual time in relation to the number of items reported as finished
You can benefit from using this method, when several orders are started at the same time as a family, but where there is only one order/item processing at a time, thereafter partial reporting as completed is made regularly. Typically start of the orders at the same time, will have more the nature of a reservation of the particular order to a certain employee/production resource.
