I've tried to find a way to change it but I wasn't able to find it.
Currently there is no way to change the setup time for a specific operation. As you may know, the setup time is currently a single constant that is inputted under the General Tab in the Costing Template, but we do not offer the ability to individually change operation setup times at the moment.
I can see this as being very useful- if we were to offer such functionality, would you prefer to set the default operation time like current functionality allows, and then modify as necessary? Do you foresee any other setup operation options that could be implemented as a result? ie. Machine Setup vs Operation Setup, etc...
It would be good to have a default value that can be modified, maybe this would be done in the machine section of the settings. I just started playing with this tool so I am not too sure of it capabilities or limitations yet. And not being a machinist I am not as familiar with the actual steps that a shop would go through to get a part made, but splitting the machine/operation setup might be good. Your software includes all of the ones that I can think of right now.
So far though I am pretty impressed with the program.
If I think of anything else I'll be sure to let you know.
Glad to help Dan, thanks a lot for the feedback
I wish it could drive setup time as a function of the number of different tools used. This makes sense as a component of turret punch or mill setup. My company is very low volume. Accurately accounting for setup times is far more important than run time.
