Module 1: Introduction to Production Series I
This module provides a high level introduction to the main production concepts used in the Production Series I course. It contains basic conceptual information and a broad overview of the main core concepts, including: a description of the interactivity of the Production module with other modules; an example of a hypothetical work flow in a single company that illustrates this interaction; a definition of core concepts in production such as BOMs, work centers, work center groups, operations and routes; an overview of the production life cycle and, finally, a summary of how multisite functionality is used in production.
•Core Concepts in Production

•Provide a brief description of general improvements to the production module, including filtering and improved Gantt Chart features.

Module 2: Bill of Materials
This module contains a comprehensive overview of the role of the Bill of material (BOM) as the first of the Production modules core building blocks. Since BOMs are used in production to specify ingredients or subordinate components that are required to make each assembled part or item in production, they are essential to the functioning of production processes. The module describes single level and indented BOMs, as well as BOM and item configurations, BOM calculations, and BOM scrap and measurement configurations. The module concludes with an overview of the standard BOM reports and how they are used.
•Understanding BOMs

•Describe the use of BOM measurements that relate to BOM items.
•List and explain the uses of the standard BOM reports.

Module 3: Calendars and Work Centers
This module provides an overview of how to set up and use calendars and work centers. Calendars and work centers are additional core building blocks to the Production module. They are set up in the Basics module in a specific sequence which is reflected in the order of the lessons. Working time templates are created first, then calendars, work center groups and finally the work centers themselves. The module also contains a summary of how operation scheduling percentages, efficiencies and exclusivity can be applied to the work centers and work center groups that are created, as well as how finite capacity planning parameters are used.

•Create work centers and attach them to work center groups.
•Define operations scheduling, efficiency, and exclusivity settings on work centers and work center groups.
•Describe finite capacity and capacity planning for work center groups.

Module 4: Operations and Routes
This module provides a step-by-step overview of the setup and process of working with operations and routes. Operations and routes are set up in the Production module in a specific sequence which is reflected in the order of the lessons. The module also describes the use of, and set up of cost categories, an overview of the creation of route group parameters that pertain to all routes in the group, and a description of how to create routes which contain the sequence of events (or operations) that are used to produce an item. Finally the module contains a brief discussion of the way scrap is calculated in the production environment, based on a defined scrap percentage and how route networks are applied.
•Cost Categories
•Cost Groups
•Route Groups
•Route Networks
After completing this module, students will be able to:
•Set up and configure operations and relations.
•Set up and use cost categories and cost groups in production routes.
•Create route groups and attach them to the route.
•Create and maintain routes and operations in the routes.
•Describe how scrap is managed in production routes.
•Configure the route network parameters and identify route networks in complex routing.

Module 5: Parameters, Production Orders and Life Cycle
This module provides an overview of how to set up prerequisite production parameters and journal names in the Production module. These prerequisites guide how production orders are created, estimated, scheduled and consumed by the application, and must be established before the production module can be used for production planning. It also reviews the stages the production order moves through as it follows the production life cycle, as well as how to set up consumption feedback, and how cost accounting is handled. Finally, the lesson covers optional settings that can be used as advanced control of how production orders are posted and handled.
•Production Parameters and Journal Names
•Production Orders
•Production Process Overview
•Production Status
•Optional Advanced Settings
Lab : Manually Create a Production Order
Lab : Configure a Production Pool and Assign a Production Order

•Describe the estimation process.
•Configure advanced settings such as production groups and production pools.

Module 6: Production Scheduling and Subcontracting
This module provides a detailed overview of how to work with production scheduling, including locking production orders and dispatching scheduled jobs to specific work centers. Scheduling is the third step in the production order life cycle, conducted after the prerequisites have been set up, and production orders have been created and estimated. Besides a review of the scheduling levels, operation and job scheduling, the module also includes a description of planned production orders, and the role that the Master planning module plays in the scheduling function in production. The module ends with a brief review of the management of outsourced productions using subcontractors.
