Best way to managing people resources as a constraint on shop orders

    We are trying to determine the best way to get dynamics to account for people resources on shop orders.  In our facility we have machine resources as the primary capacity constraint for planning but we are also resource constrained by our human resources.  Specifically we have differing numbers of production labor based on the production shift.  As a simple example, we have 9 machines and each machine requires 3 people.  On first shift we have 21 people available, on second shift we have 18 people, and on third shifts we have 15 people.

    Hi Scott, below are common approaches:
    • Machine is constraint and people working machine are not - make the machine a Primary operation and the people a Secondary Operation tied to the machine.
    • Machine and people are both constraints that must be planned/tracked - use individual operations for both machine and people running in parallel.

    Question back: will a single job on a production order need to be job scheduled across two or more shifts?
