Prioritizing Work Orders

Is there a way to prioritize work orders with the same work start day?

@gjohnson

There are two ways to prioritize work orders. You can change it for a line in a workorder or change it at the customer level. To change it for an individual line when you add the part hit the pencil icon. Once you’ve done that click more options and scroll down until you see priority rank.

To set a priority for a customer go to a customer profile. Then hit edit. Scroll down until you see priority rank which will be on the right hand side. Once you set this that will be the automatic rank for all workorders for that customer.

Let us know if you have more questions!

Is there a way for the priority rank to show up on the production order list screen? so the operator doesn’t have to open each work order to figure which ones should be done first?
I.e.
Work order 1234.1 priority rank 1
Work order 5678.1 priority rank 2

@gjohnson

Currently there isn’t a column that shows priority rank. You can create a bonus column for it on the QuoteLine bonus columns and make it searchable. That would be the only solution.

Is there any way in CETEC to sequence/schedule production build work orders that are scheduled for the same date and same work center/location. For example, if we have 10 production work orders scheduled to build on the same day in the same work center, we want them performed in a specific order. How can we use CETEC to communicate this priority?

@gjohnson

Adding a bonus column is really the only option. Just add a bonus column in the QuoteLine columns and make it searchable.

We apologize that there isn’t anything else supported for that currently.

@gjohnson - heads up! We are having Cetec ERP engineering add the “priority” field that currently exists on Work orders (order >> edit) to the Production Order List. It won’t show up until release 4.06 (July/August 2022).

In the meantime, you could also model this using a user defined field (QuoteLine Bonus Column) and make that searchable… which will mean it is available to report on via the Production Order List.

How do you edit the the bonus line column to include a priority number?

I am getting this error when trying to add a number to the bonus column.
