Set Changeover Mode

Sets the calculation parameters for changeover timing.

The Set Changeover Mode command allows you to use Visual Logic to change an Activity's method of initiating and timing changeovers.

Parameters

  • Activity - Where to set the mode for changeover timing
  • Changeover mode - How the Activity decides when to add change over time on the start of the working time

The options for this parameter are Every Nth Work Item, After Working Time, When Label Changes, and No Setup Time

  • Parameter - The Work Item count, Time, or Label name (eg “Label 1”) required for the changeover mode

Examples

Visual Logic Section
'The below command will remove any changeover from occurring on Activity 1
Set Changeover Mode Activity 1, No Setup Time, ””

'The below command will set Activity 1's changeover to occur each time 5 work items are processed at the activity
Set Changeover Mode Activity 1, Every Nth Work Item, 5

'The below command will set Activity 1's changeover to occur every 60 minutes
Set Changeover Mode Activity 1, After Working Time, 60

'The below command will set Activity 1's changeover to occur every time “lbl_ProductType” changes
Set Changeover Mode Activity 1, When Label Changes, “lbl_ProductType”


Furthermore, you can use this in combination with the Activity property Change Over Time. Using the SET command, you can SET the timing value for the changeover itself.

SET Activity 1.Change Over Mode = 60
