A Resource is an employee or a workstation that, for example, is needed to complete a Production Operation step. In the Production Operations section of the product card, you can assign a Resource to each Operation step.

Read more about Production Operations.

Manage the tasks list for each Resource in the Tasks tab of the Make screen.

Read more about managing tasks.

If your existing Resources don't include the ones you want to use for a Production Operation step, you can create a new Resource in the Production Operations tab of a product card.

Creating new Resources

  1. Create a new product or navigate to an existing product in the Items screen.

  2. Click on Production Operations tab.

  3. Type a new Resource name to the Resource field.

  4. Press Enter or click on "Create new [resource]" in the drop-down menu. Your Resource name will be saved automatically.

Alternatively, you can also create new Resources from Settings > Resources and edit and delete existing Resources.

On the Resources page, you can assign a default Cost per Hour to each Resource. This Cost per Hour is added to the Production Operation step on the Production Operations page for the product when the Resource is assigned to the specific step.

Saved Resources are reusable in Production Operations for other products and save you time as you do not need to retype the Resource name.

In Settings, you can also drag and drop to reorder Resources. The same order of Resources is used in the Tasks tab of the Make screen. Read more about the Tasks tab.
