Step 3 - Creating the equipment
|Show all Hide all|
In this step, we will create a new equipment object, and configure it according to our requirements.
In this case, Hall I will be designated as the equipment, as this hall requires specifically designed models (refer to Time model object). Whenever several different models are required for one same calendar day, you will be required to divide a project into several different equipment objects.
Expand the main node
Production & Facility Scheduler.
You should now see 3 additional entries.
Right-click on the
Equipment entry to open the context
menu, and click on the Create item. The
Equipment settings page specific to the
selected equipment is now displayed. The
Name field remains empty, as we are
creating a new equipment object.
Type Hall I in the
Name field - i.e. the new equipment
object's name. The equipment's designation (i.e. label) must be
unique throughout the whole of the PFS environment. In this
particular case, we are quite sure it is.
The Start of day (00:00:00) and End of Day (23:59:59) parameters can remain as such. These statements define the equipment's cycle for one full day.
Once you have made sure that the equipment
designation is valid, click on
OK to save these settings and create
the new equipment.
You can now see a new entry has appeared under
the Equipment header, called
I; this entry contains two further entries:
