    Hi,

    For the varying sizes, you will be maintaining different material.

    So for material 700ML, in routing, you can maintain the time taken for that size individually for all the operations. So work centers remain constant for the change in the material.

    Does this help you to solve your requirement??

    Hi,

    For different sizes of bottle the unit for WC(WORK CENER) will not change.It will be same as H(Hours).

    Maintain different material for each bottle and create master recipe for each material.And assign the rate for production to the master recipe against each operation.

    Also check if the machines are different for each bottle size.If it is so please create a new WC for each.

    Hope this will help.

    regards,

    kaushik
