How to model equipment as a constraint in Work Center?
I am trying to model the scenario where I have a Finished good routing. One of its operations has a work center constrained by the equipment used in the work center. This operation is an inspection and uses a standard prototype to carry out the task. Each product has a unique prototype and there is only 1 prototype per product to verify against. How can I model this in routing since its a constraint on the resource but not a constraint to produce Finished good. The operation takes 10 min per 1 Unit/EA of product.
I am using APO to generate plans and the reason I need to consider this as a constraint is for a fact that I can generate plans for other products for max. resource utilization. Appreciate your inputs.
