    Hi All

    Just getting started with manufacturing and trying to decide on some setup stuff

    Does wait time use a calendar? I would think not, for example, paint can dry happily over a weekend or a holiday

    Thanks

    From my understanding, "Wait Time" is not affected by the Shop Calendar. But the "Shop Calendar" will pause until the "Wait Time" has expired. That secondary clock starts as soon as you do a capacity journal for the line. So when look at the "Allocated Capacity" you will see the "Wait Time" has kicked in and the next operation on the Routing is paused. Play with it in your test environment to get the right mix for your business model.

    Mark - to add to the comments a good use for wait time is with subcontractor operations. An example would be 5 days that you will have to wait before the subcontract work comes back. When you refresh the production order the wait time on the subcontractor route steps is used in the date calculations. Since wait time is in calendar days you can plan the 5 days reasonably well.
