OrderLink Back Out
The back out procedure allows you to remove not-yet-started production from FMS Insight. After the back out, material currently in the system or in the process of being loaded is retained but the FMS Insight jobs are adjusted so that no new material will start. OrderLink will then create replacement orders for the quantity of parts that were removed.
The simulation as part of the create jobs procedure takes into account the jobs currently in FMS Insight and will not over-schedule the system. Thus, backing out is not necessary on a day-to-day basis. Instead, the back out procedure is intended for exceptional circumstances. For example, if a machine breaks down and won't be fixed for several days or more, you could back out the not-yet-started production, adjust the flexibility plan to (temporarily) remove the machine, and run the create jobs procedure. Normal day-to-day operation should not use the back out procedure.
Starting the Back Out Procedure
The back out procedure is initiated by clicking the "Backout Jobs" button. After a confirmation, FMS Insight will remove not-yet-started production and report to OrderLink the parts and quantities that were removed. OrderLink will then create replacement bookings for each removed part, either by appending new bookings to the CSV Orders or by a customizable task in the plugin.
The parts and quantities are displayed in OrderLink.
