Entering or Editing Total Demand
When the demand for a demand window is Set on Work Centers, the Total Demand for the work center must be manually entered for that demand window. These are the demand windows which have a Calculated Demand value of No. If the TAKT value for the demand window is being calculated by DPM, it is automatically recalculated after the Total Demand is changed.
To manually enter or edit the total demand for a demand window, complete the following steps:
1. On the Work Center Demand table, click Edit icon in the Total Demand column for the demand window. The edit icon appears in all Total Demand fields, but edited values are only saved for demand windows with a Calculated Demand value of No.
A small window opens with a Total Demand entry field.
2. Enter the work center’s total demand for this demand window in the entry field. The value must be 0 or a positive number up to 13 digits and can include decimals.
3. Press ENTER or click outside of the window to submit the changed value.
If the entry is valid, the change is immediately saved. If the entry is not valid, the change is not saved and the previous (currently saved) value is retained. Entries for demand windows with a Calculated Demand value of Yes are never saved.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to enter the total work center demand for additional demand windows.
