    Workcenters are decided by Machine wise, Tools are defined as PRT(Production Resource Tools) in SAP.

    In the routing for the product we use the workcenter(machine) and also assign the relevant PRT to the operation.

      I would like to describe you with one example.

      Suppose there is one product named 'X'. This X product has 20 tools and we have 176 press machine. Now this 20 tools of product 'X' can be loaded at any work center among 176 simultaenously. Now how many routing should I make. I can not dedicate the press for these 20 tools.In one press I can load 4 tools simultaenously.

      I think you are now clear with my problem.
