Autodesk Prodsmart defines a product as a series of operations through which a raw material goes.

After creating the product’s reference in the system, it is necessary to set the operations which transform the raw material into that same product and associate both the operations and the product.

1) Main Dashboard

From the Main dashboard, access the Products screen by clicking "Products" in the sidebar.

2) Products Screen

In Products choose the product to which you want to add a new operation, by pressing the code or the "Edit" button. 

3) Add a New Operation

In the Product window, click " +Add Operation".

4) Operation Form

In the Operation form, you must fill in the following:

  • “Code” – the unique operation identifier;

  • “Name” – which purpose is to easily identify any operation;

  • “Task Duration” – the average time that the operation usually takes to complete - in theory;

  • “Task Duration Customer” – time that was set in the budget;

  • “Quantity ratio” - Quantity of product produced in a specified period of time

  • “Number of times per product” - Execution of this operation per unit of product, i.e., the number of times an operation has to be performed to produce a unit of product.

The other fields are not mandatory and for now you can leave them blank.

5) Save

After completing the required fields to create a new operation, “Code”, “Name”,  “Task Duration”, “Task Duration Customer”, “Quantity ratio” e “Number of Times per Product”, click “Save Operation”.

Congratulations! You have created your operation and you have associated it with a product!

Now that you already know how to create operations, learn how to insert a machine into the system.
