Omitting input instructions and output instructions
Asprova APS Introductory Manual
You can omit input instructions and output instructions. If you specify only a use instruction(s) for the process and reschedule, the input instruction and output instruction will be automatically generated. Since you can change values for the properties of the instructions that are automatically generated, you can take advantage of this to simplify and speed up data entry when you are creating a prototype. However, in cases such as the ones mentioned below, setting only a use instruction is not enough. You need to specify an input instruction and output instruction separately or modify the automatically generated input instruction and output instruction.
- When there are multiple input items or output items, for example, when you want to express a merging process or a branching process
- When the required quantity of the input item is a value other than 1
- When you change the starting point in the time relationship between processes
