Using the Infor ERP SyteLine Scheduler, you can group several potentially different items on different jobs into a batch and process that batch through, for example, an oven or a paint booth. After the batch is processed, the different jobs then continue on their own routing. Batching affects only the Scheduler, not the Planner.
Each batch definition describes how batches are formed, including a routing that processes the batched parts. The operations forms include a batch definition field. Any operation on which a batch definition is specified is referred to as the batch operation.
