Defining a Resource

Use resources to define the time an assembly spends at an operation and the cost you incur at the operation. A resource is anything you require to perform, schedule, or cost, including but not limited to: employees, machines, outside processing services, and physical space. A resource and usage rate for all scheduled activities is required in a routing. Scheduled resources can include queue, setup, run, and move time.

When you define your departments, you assign the resources available in each department and the shifts that each resource is available. For each operation you define, you specify a department and list of resources and usages. An operation can use any resource that is available in the department, but you do not need to use all resources assigned to the department.
