Parllel operations


I'm having the scenario, i've 4 work centers. One work center will start the activity,it is going to the 2nd work center. At the same time 1st work center also will work. Like that 4 work centers will be working.

Each work center will work parallel.

To produce the quantity of 5040 EA, i need 90hrs labour time. For 90hrs all work centers will be work parallel.

How to maintain the labour hrs for each work center in routing.

My client wants they need to enter the labour hours in each work center as 90 hrs.

If we maintain like that system will calculate the labour hours as 90*4.

How to get the labour time for all operations as 90hrs?

For getting the 90hrs what i need to do in routing?

    I maintained parallel sequence of 4 operations and allignment i given in routing. Based on that while creation of production order the scheduling is taking properly. But when i'm doing confirmation for each parallel sequence i'm giving the labour hours individually and the cost is calculating based on the total quantity entered in the each 4 operation.

    Actually i need 90hrs to complete the finished product of 5040 pieces. 4 operations will be running for 90 hrs. So, my labour hours is 90 only. When i'm doing the confirmation i'm giving 90hrs as actual labour hours in each 4 operations.

    What setting we need to do, i'll enter the 90hrs in each 4 operation, cost has to calculate for 90hrs only why means its parallel operations.

    How can i get this calculation?

    Please help me..
