Jobs are used to facilitate the building and tracking of items that are made up of 1 or more component items.
Create a Job
- Access the "Job" table. Two ways:
From the Dashboard: Click the “Warehouse Operations” tab, click the “Jobs” App, then click the “Job” Table.
From the Quick Actions shortcut: Press a dot (period) on your keyboard, then select “Job” from the list of Quick Actions.
- Click the Create New button in the top right. The "Creating New Job" screen appears.
- Select the LOB and Warehouse the Job should be associated to.
- Optionally assign a Job No the Job with something that will help differentiate this job from other jobs.
- Enter an Assembly Quantity for this Job, which is the the number of output items that need to be assembled as part of this job.
- Select the Fulfillment Plan that will be used when a Job created from a Job Recipe is executed, which will then remove the Job Inputs from inventory.
- Select the Layout which defines how you have your input items organized - Layout by Assembly or Layout by SKU.
- Select if Assemblies and/or Steps should be tracked when completing a job. Here are the implications of these settings:
- Track Assemblies but not Steps - Identify each assembly until the Assembly Quantity is met.
- Track Both Assemblies and Steps - Identify an assembly then see the steps for that assembly. This repeats until the Assembly Quantity is met.
- Track Steps not Assemblies - See the steps only each time an assembly is completed.
- Track neither Steps nor Assemblies
- Enter Assembly Instructions that will assist with a completing a job. For example, if assembling a Holiday Gift Basket, the Assembly Instructions could be something like, "Line basket with green paper insert, add 2 blocks of pepperjack cheese, 1 log of cured sausage, then fill gaps with 10 chocolate candies."
- Next, select which Input items should be included in the job and what output item(s) are produced by completing a job. Click the Add button next to each header then select the necessary Items and Quantity.
- Add the steps needed to complete the assembly of a job. Optionally add assembly instructions for each step. Using our Holiday Gift Basket example, the steps would look something like this:
- Finally, either Save or Save and Start Job once all necessary fields have been filled in.
