Index with Groups

Activities can be “tied” together, so that they allow their Work Items to exit at exactly the same time as other Activities.

This is known as Indexing and is particularly useful for applications where a Takt time is required.

Access Index with Groups through the Activity dialog Routing Out > More. This requires the relevant Activities to be added to a Group.

When set, the Activity will only allow an item to leave when every other Activity in the Group has also finished their jobs. Hence every Activity in the Group will input and output at the same rate, regardless of the Cycle Time of the individual Activities.
