Routing instructions provide details about the operations and resources that are required to complete the quantity of items requested from the shop floor. APICS defines a routing as " Information detailing the method of manufacture of a particular item. It includes the operation to be performed, their sequence, the various work centers involved, and the standards for setup and run. In some companies, the routing also includes information on tooling, operator skill levels, inspection operations and testing requirements, and so on."

Routings are set up and maintained via the Enter/Change Routings program (G3011/P3003). After the creation of a work order header, a routing may be attached using the effectivity date of the routing (P3003). The routing instructions are not attached automatically once a work order is created.

There are four methods for attaching the routing instructions:

  • Manually, by entering each work center on the Work Order Routing form (P3003) individually.
  • Interactively, by using the Work Order Entry program (P48013).
  • Automatically, by setting a processing option for the Work Order Parts List program (P3111) after attaching a parts list using the work order entry program.
  • Automatically, using the Work Order Processing program (R31410).

Regardless of the method used to attach routings to work orders, it is recommended that routings be attached to work orders at the same time that the parts lists are attached. The system uses the routing instructions to verify information about each item on the parts list. Confirm that the Line Type (LNTY) for the parent item is a valid value in the Item Master (P4101) and Item Branch (P41026). An invalid or blank value can cause a routing to fail to attach to a work order when running Work Order Processing (R31410). Note that there is no application to perform mass updates of routings. Manual changes can be made, and re-attaching the routing to a work order, either by running R31410 or interactively, can be performed.

This document covers major topics and examples of functionality for work order routings (P3112) and explains the use of the fields that appear in the manufacturing routing grid.
