Auto Merge - Relaxed Router

Hi Folks,

We are using relaxed routers and a single SFC with a qty, we have set up a non conformance code for when operators accidentally complete an operation and this non conformance code has a disposition group of 'return to any previous' .

We have set up the auto split and auto merge but we have an issue where after the non conformance is dispositioned the SFC gets slip into two SFC's and doesn't get auto merged back again (since we didn't complete anything)

We are using a work center POD and this shop order now appears as two lines on the POD work list which is not ideal. The correct qty is moved to the previous operation as required its just the multiple SFC's that are an issue.

Is there any other settings I'm missing that will auto_merge them back together again after dispositioning?

    Hi Kev!

    It should work as described here.

    In List Maintenance, there is Status field which has a list of allowed values. There is no Invalid status - so if the SFC of zero qty after auto-merge has Invalid status, then it should not be shown in POD Work List.

    BTW what do you mean by "we didn't complete anything"? Completing a child SFC (that you get after auto-split) and returning it from NC routing to the original production routing should trigger auto-merge. If you "didn't complete anything", then it could be the root cause why the child SFC remains available.

      Hi Sergiy,

      Agreed, I already suggested to the client using a dummy step and demonstrated it working but they don't want that extra step, so they are going to use SFC Step Status (carried out by a supervisor).

      I would be a nice additional feature for future releases if this scenario was added 😉

      Thanks for you help.
