Assigning priority to a production order routing line, involves the assigning of priority to all, uncompleted operations of this production order.

The workload categories are displayed in date order, which is determined by the system setup paramater:

• Start date of the order
• Start date of the order routing operation
• Delivery date of the operation
• Due date (delivery date) of the order

By using the priority facility, it is possible to change the sorting so that the orders sequence are modified in the total workload.

It is possible to use different codes that appear when pressing the “Modify priority” key on a certain line at the bottom of the screen.

The codes 5–8 prioritize the order FORWARDS through the total workload order stack, with 8 being the highest priority of expediting. When selecting the priority 5 – 8, the delivery date of the order will be secondary, so that the orders are sorted in relation to the delivery date within each priority code.

The codes 2-4 prioritize the order BACKWARDS through the workload with 2 as the most powerful figure lowering the priority of deferring. When choosing priority 2-4, the delivery date of the order will be primary, so that the orders are sorted related to the delivery date and within each priority code.

The codes 0 and 1 can be used to determine if orders shall be shown at the planner screen only, or on the planner screen and the operator screen.

A planner can, if an order should be held, or the like, at any time remove an order from the operator screen. (Or remove remaining operations), by changing the priority code from 0 to 1. (This only applies, if “Automatic release” has been selected).

• Please observe that the priority change is done on all non-finished routing operations for the order. In a multi order line environment on the same production order you determine yourself if the priority update shall be made for the single order line or all order lines.
