Scheduling Multiple operations on one resource


(Jayaram Krishna) #1

We make large mining trucks and the assembly stage of the truck include multiple operations that need to be started and completed on one resource. The resources represent truck build bays. All trucks (with multiple operations) are scheduled to one resource groups which encompass multiple resources. The issue I am facing is that the operations are not staying at the same resource where the first operation commenced. Its jumps back and forth from one resource to another. In addition to this problem, it also creates gaps between two consecutive operations. This in our world means that the “truck moves from one bay to another after start” plus there are weeks gaps between the two operations (Too big of a WIP). No physical space to stage a truck.
