Operation materials

The Operation Materials table defines what item(s) an operation is consuming and producing.

If an operation Op is consuming 2 units of part A and 1 unit of part B to produce 3 units of part C, then this table should contain three records:

operation quantity item type
Op -2 A Start
Op -1 B Start
Op 3 C End

If the same operation produces 1 units of part C you can leave out the third record. It’s implicitly assumed from the item field in the operation table.

operation quantity item type
Op -2 A Start
Op -1 B Start
