A work center is where an operation or a number of operations are carried out in a production and maintenance plant. A work center can represent a machine or a group of machines as well as a person or a group of people. A hierarchal structure of production and statistical work centers can be defined in the system and associated with respective cost centers.
Capacities can be maintained for a work center or independent of it. The system enables you to define machine capacity, labor capacity, reserve capacity for rush orders, emissions and energy consumptions for your work centres. These capacities can also be hierarchically accumulated. The capacity and other data defined for a work center is used for different purposes like costing, scheduling and capacity planning.
