Dynamic Setup times

I was wondering if anyone already has a solution for this type of scenario:

We have a 3 bottling lines. Within one line we can run multiple bottle sizes. If we switch from one product to another with the same bottle size then setup time is X. If we switch from one product to another and the bottle size changes, then set up time is Y. I know this can be covered manually in the Prod Order by the planner, but it would be nice to have a systematic solution. If we had to write a custom code for this, then I would look at the raw materials (specifically the bottle) in the previous Prod Order and compare that to the raw materials in the current order to determine the setup up time -which would trigger a set up time adder.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

    Hello

    You can use a setup time matrix to map this scenario. The setup time will be ajusted automatically when dispatching the orders in capacity leveling, according to the dispatching sequence. You can find more information on the link below:
