Copy production operations from one product to another to save significant time in setting up similar products. This guide details the process of using an existing product as a template to replicate its operations, streamlining production planning and reducing manual data entry.

Copying product operations from another product

  1. Navigate to the Items screen, select a product, and go to the Production operations tab on the product card (will need to have I make this product enabled).

  2. Click on Copy operations from at the top right corner of the operations table.

  3. FInd the product that you want to use as a template.

  4. If some operation steps have already been added to the current product, Katana will ask you to confirm the copy action before these operations will be overwritten.

Note: if the variant structure of the current product is different from the variant structure of the product you are copying from, then the variant selection will be -none- by default for all operations. You will then need to manually assign which operations apply to which product variants.
