Workorder Item/ Workorder “Schedule By” Date


The “Schedule By” date is the date you want the parts in the workorder to be nested and scheduled on to a plate for cutting.


The schedule by date is calculated in one of two ways:

  1. Backward from each workorder item cut by date by a specified number of working days.
  2. Forward from the workorder created date by a specified number of working days. (Workorder is “created” at the point the workorder is first saved)


Each workorder item will have a schedule by date according to these rules. If we choose method one items with different cut by dates will have different schedule by dates.

The overall workorder schedule by date will be the earliest item schedule by date.
