Documentation about how the finished product is actually processed (as it is manufactured) is captured in three types of information items used in the opentaps manufacturing:

  • The bill of material (BOM) describes the components and materials used in each stage of the fabrication or construction of the finished good. The BOM provides for capturing material costs as they are used up in production.
  • The routing tasks describe how each step of the manufacturing operations is performed and provides for capturing the cost of labor and time when executing each step.
  • The production routings are the documents which specify how the step by step (routing tasks) operations are combined in sequences resulting in a finished good. So, routings are the road-map or the orchestration for how the whole production run is conducted.
