Shop Floor Control - Dispatch Report



The Shop Floor Dispatch Report lists all work orders with outstanding production requirements by scheduling priority (as assigned in the Work Order Entry task). It can be used to identify which jobs are to be worked on for each work center. Within each operation , work orders are listed in required date sequence with daily requirements totals and totals by week.


In the AddonSoftware Shop Floor Control module, a work order’s critical ratio is calculated by dividing the number of hours until the scheduled completion date by the number of standard hours of uncompleted work. Work orders that are behind schedule will show lower critical ratios than work orders that are ahead of schedule.
