Maintaining Technical Data in the Work Center
To carry out a standard value calculation with CAPP, you must maintain technical data in the work center. You can maintain the technical data when creating and when changing a work center.
You can find more detailed information on creating and changing work centers in the document PP - Work Centers .
Proceed as follows to maintain technical data for a work center:
You reach the initial screen of work center maintenance.
You reach the screen Technical Data where the number of processes that have already been allocated is displayed.
- Machine type: The machine type is used to group together work centers with the same technical data (for example, lathes or drills).
- Sort string: You can sort and search for CAPP elements using the sort string. For example, the sort string is used in the matchcode.
- CAPP planner group: Enter the person or group of people responsible for maintaining the CAPP elements and technical data.
