When developing a work order, it is very important to know the possible flows through which an order could pass in the plant. Configuring this correctly will allow operators to correctly see the work in their modules and the progress at the end of their work.

The flows can be found at the bottom of a work order:

Before starting, it is important to mention that the flow is standard in everything that happens, including the "press" state. The different options will only assign the flow to what comes after that state. The previous flows to press in various scenarios are as follows:

OFFSET AND DIGITAL SHEETFED 

Colour test > Approval > Assembly > Pre-press cut > Press. If the paper fits directly into the machine, skip to "Pre-press cut".

FLEXO AND DIGITAL IN ROLLS 

Colour test > Approval > Assembly > Die-stamping > Press. If it does not have a die and/or it is digital, it does not go through die-stamping.

NOTE 1: If the work order involves some type of service such as "roll revision" or "unit revision", then the last state of the order after dispatch will be "revision". If a service of this nature is not involved, the last state after dispatch will be "completion".

That said, when we speak of flow, we refer to the path that the order will take after printing and before revision or completion as appropriate.

1.- Cut Flow:

After finishing, the printing will go to "cut termination" (followed by "termination" as per NOTE 1).

2.- Cut Flow + Services

After finishing, the print will go to "cut termination", then to "services" (followed by "termination" as per NOTE 1).

3.- Flow Court + Services + Court

After finishing, the print will go to "cut termination", then to "services" and "cut termination" (followed by "termination" as per NOTE 1).

4.- Flow Service + Cut:

After finishing, the print will go to "services", then to "cut termination" (followed by "termination" as per NOTE 1).

5.- Flow Termination + Service + Cutting

After finishing, the printout will go to "termination", then to "services" and "cut" (followed by "termination" as per NOTE 1).

6.- Flow Termination + Cut + Service

After finishing, the printout will go to "termination", then to "cut" and "services" (followed by "termination" as per NOTE 1).

7.- Cut Flow + Termination + Service

After finishing, the print will go to "cut", then to "termination" and "services" (followed by "termination" as per NOTE 1).

8.- Flow Termination + Cutting

After finishing, the print will go to "finishing", then to "cutting" (followed by "finishing" as per NOTE 1).

9.- Service Flow

After finishing, the printout will go to "services" and finally to "termination" (see NOTE 1).

Having said all this, there is one unresolved question. How does the system know when to go from a status of "services" to "termination" or how to exit "review" and go to "dispatch"?

Each service (laminate, die, etc.) of the platform can be assigned to "services" or "termination".

Once all services (laminate, die, etc.) are marked as completed, the order will jump to the next step (termination, for example).

If we have a "roll revision" or "unit revision" type of service, then once this service is finished, it will jump to "dispatch".

On the other hand, if we have the module printing active labels once we have printed the total number of labels for each box, the order will "jump" to "dispatch".

To finish, when the dispatch traffic light (dispatch menu, colored traffic light) illuminates, it means we have registered deliveries for the overall order (with quantity and delivery date) and then the order will jump to "dispatch guide".

NOTE: Twist autonomously offers flows according to the services assigned, depending on whether they were assigned to "services" or "terminations" in the configurator. However, we suggest that in any case they are reviewed by the person in charge at the time of creating the work order. They may modify it according to criteria.
