The rework option supports you in organizing your rework parts. You can capture rework parts in productionAssist and these are automatically displayed for further processing in productionManager.

When capturing a rework part, you can select the appropriate options from five error categories, each with six error reasons.

In addition, you can notify the responsible employee and add photos or comments so that a rework can be quickly and properly reintegrated into the production process.

To send rework to your cutting optimization, send the rework parts to intelliDivide or create an Excel file with the relevant information.

Back in the production process, you always have an overview of the status of the rework parts in productionAssist and productionManager and can track the rework in the order progress.

Add "Rework" workstation in productionAssist

You must purchase a license for this option in order to be able to use the rework option.
After purchasing a license, add the rework workstation in productionAssist and configure it.

Capture rework in productionAssist

As soon as a rework workstation has been created, a part can be registered for reworking. 

To capture a rework in productionAssist, scan a part ID directly in the workstation overview and select the Rework option or open the Rework workstation and scan a part ID here.

Only parts that have at least the status Ready for production can be captured for rework.

There are five error categories to choose from [1]. Six error reasons are stored for each category [2].

The value Other is preselected for both selection fields.

Comments, images and documents can be added and the notification function can be used for fast and targeted processing and assessment of the rework request in productionManager [3].

Note: If a part with a quantity greater than 1 is located at several workstations, the last workstation for this part must be selected. Otherwise, the quantities in the Order progress tab cannot be calculated correctly.

Tip: For a better overview, the columns Quantity produced, Quantity of rework and Quantity remaining are also available for each workstation in productionAssist and can be added via the table settings.

Overview of all rework in productionAssist

In the Rework workstation, all rework is listed. The Status column provides an overview of where each rework is located.

Status Status color Explanation
In progress gray After creating a request for a rework, the rework is given the status "In process".
Approved light green After the approval of a rework request, the part receives the status "Approved".
Rejected red After a request for a rework has been rejected, the part receives the status "Rejected".
Transferred dark green After transferring a rework request to a cutting optimization, the part receives the status "Transferred".


Overview and editing of reworks in productionManager

As soon as a rework workstation has been created in productionAssist, the Rework tab appears in productionManager. 

The Rework tab lists all rework jobs with the relevant information clearly sorted by status. 

Note: A green notification symbol appears in productionManager when a new rework request has been received for evaluation.

To process a rework request, it must be rejected or approved. 

After approval, the request is automatically moved to the Approved tab. From there, the rework request can be sent directly to intelliDivide or exported for another cutting optimization - such as Cut Rite. The rework request is then automatically moved to the Completed tab.

A rework request can also be rejected if, for example, it was unfounded or the part can be repaired. In this case, a reason for the rejection must be entered and the user who submitted the request is preselected for notification.

A rejected rework request is automatically moved to the Completed tab.

Overview of rework in the order progress for each customer order

The Order progress tab provides you with an overview of all the rework for each customer order and for each workstation. 
The quantity of reworkings per workstation can vary depending on whether a part to be reworked has already been reported as complete in a workstation or not.
