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:
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||operation||The operation name consuming and producing items.|
|quantity||number||The quantity of item consumed or produced. A negative quantity should be used for consumed items and positive quantity should be used for produced items.|
|item||item||The item being consumed or produced.|
This field is used to specify whether the stock should be consumed/produced at the start or at the end of the operation.
Possible values : “Start”, “End”, “Fixed start”, “Fixed end”.
Start : This is typical to consumed items. The item is consumed at the beginning of the operation.
End : This is typical to produced items. The item is produced at the end of the operation.
