When scheduling machines APS loads the times assuming multiple machines are doing the operation when it should allocate time to each machine serially

Hi Angie,

I’ve seen that the Machine Schedule will schedule Machine Time using all machines configured for an operation’s work center. It will split the machine time among all machines instead of planning on 1 machine. For example, if the Work Center for operation 0010 has 3 machines configured, the Machine Time for that operation will get split up among those 3 machines.  Is that the functionality to which you are referring?  If so, this is the standard functionality.

This could be a great idea for improvement, though! If you add it to the Idea page in the Community, that will give others a chance to vote on it, and our developers will see it as well!
