How to have a SFC active but not record labour??
My latest challenge from the shop floor is how to have an SFC still be active without anybody being laboured onto it (Visiprise 4.2)
We have several processes that require product to be placed in an oven for a long period of time, sometimes several days. Our production staff "sign on" to the SFC whilst they prepare the oven and load it. They then "sign off" and work on something else. When the process is completed someone (not always the same person) "signs on" to the SFC removes the product etc and the "completes" the operation.
This gives us the actual labour touch time and the actual cycle time , the problem is that when the first operator signs off the SFC it changes it status back to "In Queue" which then show in the WIP reports as being available for work, which it isn't.
So, is there anyway of signing off the SFC but not changing status to "In Queue" ?? That way it will not show in the WIP reports as being available for work and will stop our operators getting so confused .
Thanks for any help that you can give.
