Job Acceptance Rate

The Job Acceptance Rate is the percentage of jobs accepted by operators dividing the jobs completed during a time period by one or multiple part programs running on a machine tool.

Operators are able to input the number of acceptable jobs for each part program or for a whole shift (if set up) to calculate the Quality metric for a machine tool in a more accurate and controllable way. It is calculated using the following formula:

Quality = Acceptable jobs / Total jobs done

That is, the more complete the acceptable jobs you enter, the more accurate the Quality metric.

See OEE for details on each of the OEE metrics.

Note

This feature is ONLY available for machine tools with PRO or PRO Trial subscriptions.

Enter Acceptance Rate

Note

Standard users could edit or input the number of acceptable jobs after an asset administrator enabled this function.

To enter the job acceptance rate for a whole shift, you need to set up a production schedule in which shifts are included for the asset firstly. See Creating a Schedule for details.Schedule Management

Tip

To check the shift associated with the current asset, see Modifying Asset Properties for details.

  1. Click the Enter Acceptance link on the Asset Detail View.

    Tip

    If you set up a production schedule that includes more than 7 shifts, scroll down within the Shifts area to view the complete shifts.

  3. Select a part program from the Programs list and click the Edit icon or the input box to enter the number of acceptable jobs into the Acceptable Jobs column.

    Note

    The number of acceptable jobs cannot exceed the number of completed jobs.

  4. Repeat Step 3 to edit the acceptable number for the rest of the programs until all programs in the shift are processed.

    You'll see the Acceptance Rate will be calculated automatically at the bottom left corner.

    • The number of Acceptable Jobs is the total sum added up by each of the numbers you entered for the part programs above.

    • Similarly, the number of Job Completed is the total sum added up by each number of jobs completed for each program.

    • Acceptance Rate = Acceptable Jobs / Job Completed

  5. Click Save.

    Note

    Please note once an acceptable number is entered into the input box and saved, the part program will disappear from the Programs list and you are not able to edit the value again.

If you prefer to enter the job acceptance rate for an individual part program, follow the steps below.

  1. Click on the All outstanding jobs tab.

    Here displays all jobs completed for different programs but have not been accepted by operators yet.

  2. Select a time period from the time range.

After completion of entering acceptable jobs for part programs, check the OEE pane in the Asset Detail View. You'll see the Quality value is re-calculated based on your entered rate. You can switch to different time ranges by clicking on the Date selection button on the Utilization chart to check the corresponding Quality metric.
