Standard Routing

Standard Routing

The Standard Routing defines the non-material resources needed to support the production of items. An effective resource definition application should allow you to comprehensively identify all the enterprise resources needed to produce an item. It should also allow you to easily define the process steps required for production, and it should allow you to provide sufficient detail relative to process steps to clearly describe all the operations required. These definitions should be available to all other areas within the enterprise to efficiently conduct business in engineering and design, quoting and proposal writing, production planning and operations, and cost accounting.
