The production summary shows how many batch Jobs are at each production event and when it is due out on any given day. In this article, you can click on a Batch Job to view where it currently is in the production process. Also, you can create custom filters to narrow down your results, print the Batch sheet, send the Batch to a device, or select to complete a Batch.


Production Summary

Click the PRODUCTION tab (see #1) and open CURRENT WORK > Summary (see #2)

The below table shows a summary of all Production jobs that are coming into assembly from another step.
The number of Incoming, Waiting (in green), Due Soon (in yellow), Overdue (in red), Over Capacity (grey), and Total production jobs at each Event (Cut, Laminate, Print, ... etc.). Please note that these numbers reflect the jobs' statuses within this production step and not out of the shop for shipping. Also, Over Capacity jobs are those whose deadlines were missed and cannot be met.

Notice that the Total number of Jobs in the Production Summary table matches those found next to each event name under Current Work on the left-side menu. In the below example, there are a total of 10 Cut, 10 Laminate, and 9 Print Jobs. Note that the Current Work events are listed in alphabetical order.
