Production Job Status Overview
Detailed below is an overview of the production job status options and how they are set
All jobs are allocated to a batch or routing template which can have a capacity set before they are released to the shop floor. Jobs are classified as filling until this capacity has been reached. It is not compulsory to have a capacity but common to ensure manufacturers get an economy of scale
|If single artwork items are being batched together than they will be at this status while the merged artwork file is generated. If items are in batches of 1 or not being merged together then this status is not used|
|If a RIP integration is used, once a batch is filled this status is used when the batch is que'd for the RIP|
Sent to RIP
|If a RIP integration is used, the batch is has been sent to be RIP'd|
Once generated, all jobs are classed as pending production whether merged or not and will remain at Pending Production until the job sheet or artwork is downloaded either manually or automatically
In Production (Stock Picking)
Jobs move to this status if a Stock Picking label has been downloaded for that job
Sent to Production
This status is used by our production integrations when we are communicating directly with a printer, server or hot folder and is set when we have sent the artwork file to that specific device
This is set once a job has been started this is triggered when the artwork or job sheet is downloaded or printed by using a scan point and when you manually or automatically download the artwork
This is set when we know the job is completed but has not yet been dispatched. We know this when we are notified by a production integration, a job is part of a multiline order or when a job has passed the QC scan point
When a job has been scanned as dispatched it is set to this status
Jobs are auto archived after a certain time frame dependent on the data protection rules in your country
We also have the option for a Batch Substatus which is usually set by scanning a bar code at different scan points and will simply display the name of the current department - jobs can be scanned in or out of a department or the substatus just used to display current location. Substatus is not related to the overall status of a job detailed above but is most commonly used when a job is "In Production"
Typical uses of Substatus are
