What's New in 17.2

DWOS Version 17.2 contains numerous New Features and Workflow Enhancements to vastly improve Traceability, Processing Flow challenges, and Order Lifecycle Visibility.  

Rejoin Tool

The DWOS Order Rejoin gives DWOS Users the ability to combine previously split Work Orders. Orders may only be ‘Rejoined’ with Orders with identical PO values and Parent Orders (The Order from which the Split was originated). In order to Rejoin, Work Orders must also be located in the same Current Department, with the same Order Status in DWOS. Original, Split, and Rejoin Order History and Traceability will be available in the Order Entry Dialog.

(See Instructional Slides for additional instruction)

Serial Number Editor

With the use of Basic and Advances Serial Number functionality, DWOS Users can now track and manage specific Part and Order Traceability. The Serial Number Editor work in conjunction with the DWOS Split and Rejoin workflow to accurately monitor and report Serial Numbers within Work Orders.

Custom Fields in Order Processing

Another New addition to DWOS is the use of Custom Field Values in Order Processing Answers. Users can now modify Process Answers or dictate and flow-down to Users, specific Answer parameters and tolerances. Utilization of this workflow will also provide time-saving options when creating and modifying DWOS Processes.

Custom Field Default Values

DWOS users now also have the ability to preset Default Values in Bulk and Customer-Specific applications. Default Values can be setup in New and Existing Custom fields within the Customer Manager.

Manual Scheduling

DWOS Users also now have the capability to Manually Schedule Orders, sorted by Department, and flow-down to Operators via the WIP Screen and DWOS Mobile. After prioritizing Orders, Schedules can be printed or viewed from all connected DWOS devices. To access this feature, choose Manual from the Scheduling Type in General Administrative Settings. Be sure to enable Scheduling via the checkbox before exiting the dialog.

Auto-Thickness Calculation in Order Processing

The DWOS Process Manager now contains three ‘Smart’ Answer Type for Process Questions. To Utilize this feature, Users must add Questions for ‘Decimal Before,’ ‘Decimal After’, and ‘Decimal Difference’ within a Process Step. Upon Answering Process Questions for ‘Before’ and ‘After,’ DWOS will automatically calculate the ‘Decimal Difference’ and populate the field with the calculated value. This workflow was designed with the intent of assisting DWOS Users gather and manager Coating Thickness data.

Statement of Repairs

DWOS 17.2 also contains the capability to create an automatically populated Statement of Repairs. The Statement of Repairs organizes all required data required by Brokers and US Customs for shipments crossing the United States and Canadian border.
