Capacity Planning: WO Completion Date Change

WO Completion Date Change

WO Completion Date Change

This window enables you to review a Work Order and re-schedule its completion date by selecting a new date in the list. The window opens when you double-click on a Work Order in the Work Centre Make-To List or in the Work Orders window which is opened by double-clicking on a load line in the Work Centre Loading Chart window.

Using the list on the right of the window you can select a new completion date. If you then confirm with an OK all Capacity Planning lists are re-calculated to reflect the new completion date.

Change Route…

Click to amend the route operations that will apply to the Work Order. Any changes will effect operation loading listings, when confirmed.

This button control opens the Work Order Operation List Maintenance window to permit changes to the operational route for the single selected WO. After amendment, if the Apply To WO button is not clicked, the selected WO will have the assembly’s standard route of operations.

Note NOTE: Every time a Work Order is created on the system a copy of the operational Process Route is created and held against that specific Work Order. When the WO is cancelled or completed, the route is automatically deleted. Work History records the operational activity. At the time of creating the WO you can amend the standard route, that can contain alternate operations. Capacity Planning takes account of the stored WO-specific route. Shopfloor activity and Work History reflects the stored route rather than the design Process Route. When creating a WO you can even drop standard operations which have no alternates and add completely new operations specific to the particular WO. Once the WO has been created, it is independent of the design Process Route.

There are some rules and restrictions that apply:

  • Any change can be made to the operations of a WO before it has been saved to the database.
  • If the WO has not been kitted or backflushed, changes can be made to the operations.
  • If any outwork operation has been placed on a Purchase Order or RFQ, that operation cannot have it’s operation number or work centre changed while it is still subject to a PO or RFQ.
  • If some of the WO has been received, or Shopfloor data collected for the final operation, the final operation number cannot be removed or changed, nor can a higher operation number be added to the WO route. However, the details of the final operation, including Work Centre, can be changed.
  • If an assembly has a Process Route, you cannot eliminate all operations for a particular Work Order. At least one must remain.


Aborts the process currently in session. The keyboard equivalent is the Esc key for Windows computers and Command-.(full stop or period) for the Mac.


The OK button updates the data you have entered, or confirms the selection and/or processes the function you have called.
