Work Instructions


Allows the user to set instructions for manufacturing on a product. The instructions are displayed on the work order for operators to follow. Instructions can include replaceable elements based on other fields of the item card, for example the instruction can be “Add 2g of salt to the mixture” where “2” is the calculated quantity of the particular work order and “g” is the unit of measure of the component.
