Katana simplifies the process of editing production operations directly on product cards, allowing for adjustments in operations, resources, costs, and time. This guide covers how to access and modify operation details, providing flexibility in managing manufacturing specifications to better align with production needs and changes.

This will show you how to edi production operations one by one. If you're looking to edit in bulk, check out this article.

Note: On each manufacturing order (MO) you can edit the operations Resources and Time to change who is assigned to a specific task or update the actual production time. Read more about manufacturing orders.

Editing production operations

  1. Navigate to Production operations on a product card

    Production operations can be edited or deleted on a product card. To get to the Product operations tab, navigate to Items screen > Products table and click on the product you want to edit. The Production operations tab is next to the General info and Product recipe / BOM tabs (as long as I make this product as been checkmarked).

  2. Edit/delete Production operations

    Edit the Operations, Resources, Cost per Hour, and Time fields by clicking on the field and changing the values. Changes save automatically.

    Drag and drop operation steps if you want to change the order.

    Delete operations steps by clicking on the trash icon at the end of the row of an operation step. If you want to delete the whole production operations for a product, delete all the operation steps.

Note: Production operation changes don't automatically apply to existing manufacturing orders. A notification at the bottom of the screen on the Production operations page allows you to apply changes to all open MOs. You can also see a notification on the MO if the Production operations for the product has changed and you can choose to refresh the MO.
