Explain how Split Addressing works?                      Split addressing will split work between multiple
                                                         operators in the same operation. If a criteria is used it
                                                         would also split work based on the selected criteria
What is the ELC Link and why is it important to keep Elc Link connects the computer (and Database) to
it running during production?                            the ELC. This is how the system (ELC)
                                                         communicates with the Computer
What happens if you Stop the ELC Link during             The computer can no longer send routing
production?                                              information to the line or keep track of employee or
                                                         production data. Start it right away if this happens
Why is the End of Day process important to run every End of day closes out that days(or shifts) production
day?                                                     information and performs necessary tasks for
                                                         keeping the database running properly. Reports are
                                                         also created at this time.
When does the backup process occur                       Backup occurs during the end of day process. Once
                                                         end of day is complete, the final stage is to run the
                                                         backup.bat file. This file copies the database to a
                                                         backup location.
When is off standard used?                               Used to log Non-Productive time. For example:
                                                         when a sewing machine is broken, this would be
                                                         considered Off Standard Time.
Write the terminal command an operator would use to Enter 50 F3
go into off standard for a machine breakdown. Use        To exit, Enter 0 F3
off standard code 50 for this example.

Create a prun. Use criteria‟s from the list you created. Connect it to the style /            Done on computer
operation list you created above.
Has everything been done now so you can start to run the line / production? If not,           Done on computer
list what is missing below:

Reserve Rail 1006 for Criteria 20. How could the reserve rail function be used?               Done on computer
Answer below:
Reserving a rail can be used to force work of a specific criteria (based on what
criteria is used for the chosen addressing type) to go into a specific station. This
would lock that station for only the specified criteria. It is important to remove
the Reserve once complete or else no other work will be sent to that station (until
the reserve is removed)

9. Explain the following message on the terminal:

           @1034              The clamp is AT station 1034

           St:1039 Fifo:2               The clamp is located at station 1039, position 2 of the FIFO

           Hdl>2056(3)                The clamp is on the headline and is 3rd in line for station 2056

Error! Number cannot be represented in specified format.                                                         3

1. What is FIFO?

First in / First out

2. Why is it so important that the FIFO is correct?
The fifo determines what work is being worked on now and where its heading next. If this is
Wrong then it is possible work will go to the wrong station and cause errors on the system.

3. There are two different situations of FIFO errors, how do you correct them if:

    a. ELC says 5 clamps in FIFO, but you can see 4 clamps:

Check fifo (910 F4), find the wrong clamp and delete it (903 . cl# F4) or delete the top clamp in FIFO

    b. ELC says 4 clamps in FIFO, but you see 5 clamps:

Find where there is a HOLE and insert the clamp missing from the FIFO into that position

4. What do you do when you get the message “UNKNOWN CLAMP” in the terminal?

Enter . Clamp# F7

5. When you get the message “Send clamp on” in the terminal, what does it mean and what do you do?

The clamp is in the wrong station but the system is correcting this by sending it to the correct station

6. How do you find this information:

     a. Why a station is LOCKED

Enter F7 – or -- . F7 -- or – 500 F4 / 11 F4 (these commands will answer why a station is locked)

   b. How can the operator check her quality on the terminal?
Enter 38 F4 on the operators Terminal
Error! Number cannot be represented in specified format.                                              4
7. What do you do when a station is blocked?

Check the reason why. Usually it is because the next operation is 100% full. In that case look at
Balancing issues. Move the operator who is blocked temporarily until he/she can work freely again.

8. How do you change the supervisor function of a station, i.e. temporary inspection?
Find the station in workplace status, right click on the station and select Workplace Settings. Check
the box for Temp Inspect.

9. Here you have three scenarios, find the best solution for them: Show in the operation list what would
   you do and describe what would you do on the production floor.

     a) There is a Bottle neck on the Sideseam operation, and you want to insert “1023” as a Balancing
     Add 1023 next to station 1014, Block 1023 at operation Hem Bottom. Save your changes

     b) The operator at workplace 1018/Attach collar is sick and goes home.

     Delete station 1018 from the routing, save changes. Then feed all of the work out from that

     c) You have a machine breakdown at Hem bottom at workplace 1024. You have another machine at
        workplace 1010.

     Remove 1024 from the routing and add 1010 in its place. Block 1010 under Topstitch sleeve.
     Save changes. Then feed out all of the work from 1024 so the system will automatically send the
     work to 1010
