This procedure is used to enter or maintain queue and transportation times. These are used to calculate lead times for services.
A positive queue and transportation time increases lead time, and a negative value decreases it. Overlapping occurs when the queue and transportation time is negative.
Before you begin to enter queue and transportation times, the following prerequisites must be met:
Select 'Work Center. Enter Queue & Transit Time' (PDS020).
Create a queue time by specifying From and To work center.
Specify the queue value in panel E.
To end use F3 = End.
This procedure results in queue and transportation times which are used in calculating lead times of the product, as well as start and finish times for a work order and included operations.
The start time for the operation is also the basis for calculating material requirement times for work orders.
