Q: Can we make a dispatch per area? For instance, if I send someone to clean up an area, it doesn’t make sense to make a dispatch per machine.
A: Because of the data hierarchy, every event must have a machine. But, machine is a loose term. There is no reason that on a line you cannot have a machine that is called '5S Assembly' for example. An administrator can add this to the system. Go to 'Main Menu>Setup>Machines>Add New' and add this. Then select the line you wish it to be attached to. Note: You will want to give each a unique name like '5S Assembly' or '5S Maint Shop'. This is because you cannot have duplicate codes in the system and a machine can only be assigned to one line at a time.
