• Question

  • Hi all,

    I'm trying to schedule some work in a machine shop.
    Say 3 machines (M1,M2), 2 operators (O1,O2), 2 Jobs (J1,J2)
    I have machines and operators on the resource sheet as work.

    As it stands the system will allow machine 1 to work simultaneously on two jobs if two different operators are assigned.
    I need the machine to be free AND the operator to be free. at the moment it seems to be working in the OR mode.

    Maybe this is a case where I need to manually organize schedules.

  • Andy --

    If you are trying to use leveling to meet your requirements, you are probably missing a leveling option that will help you.  Click Resource > Resource Leveling.  In the Resource Leveling dialog, DESELECT the Leveling Can Adjust Individual Assignments on a Task option, and then click the OK button.  During the leveling process, this will keep the machine and the operation working together.  Just a thought.  Hope this helps.
