ROU - Route Information Management

The CANIAS ERP Route Information Management program enumerates, independently of the production schedule, the production stages necessary for the fabrication or assembly of a product. The Routing forms a basis for production order control, the planning of capacity for machinery and labor force, and product costing.


The target is to provide a means to manage all data concerning
  • the implementation of operations
  • the sequence in which they should be carried out,
  • the production resources and necessary tools,
  • the work centers at which these operations should be carried out.


The core of the CANIAS ERP Route Information Management module is the routing itself. All materials for which a routing programm can be generated are recorded in the IAS material master.


The CANIAS ERP System distinguishes three different types of routing:
  • Normal routing
  • Alternative routing
  • Standard routingTrough the routing category (input field in the routing main mask), the
related routing is determined.

Normal routing

A normal routing is clearly for a particular material and contains data on all work processes which have to be carried out specifically for the production of this material.

Alternative routing

It is occasionally necessary to define different routings for a material for different business contexts. The Alternative Product Tree Management provides this service.

Standard routing

The multiple routing concept is useful to implement standardized production processes which then can be incorporated in various derived routings. The head of the routing contains the material to be produced, the period of its validity, the valid lot size range, the status which determines in which context the routing may be used and the work scheduler who controls the production.


Once a routing has been completed, it can be scheduled. The scheduling data can be recorded in the material master. This information can be used in the creation of rough-cut capacity load records for material requirement planning.

Work center

Among the data handled by work centers are:
  • Cost Centers/Activity Types
  • Capacity data
  • Calculations for scheduling and capacity loads
  • Proposed values for the routing
The most important input data in the CANIAS ERP work center are the activity types for a particular work center, and its potential capacity. Grundlage der Kapazittsberechnung bilden die Kapazittsbasen Maschine und Personal. Capacity calculations are based on labor and plant capacity figures. Additional input masks enable the planning of work periods of one week (standard working week) and for exceptions to standard working weeks, such as national holidays, company specific holidays or extended working hours due to increased production targets.

Planning types

CANIAS ERP offers the user three different types of work center and routing planning:
  • Regenerative planning
  • Repeat planning
  • Similarity planning

Substitute function

The CANIAS ERP Route Information Management module offers the following replacement functions to the work planner:
  • Work center substitution
  • Control of any operations substitution
  • Production resources substitution

Where used list

For components which are common to several Routings, the Where-Used List will display all of the Routings which are relevant to the item.

Print functions

Routings can be printed directly from the routing data displayed.
