Bin substitutions made easier

Bin Sub new

When a weigh scale goes to a slow fill status due to running out of material the operator is able to use the bin substitution facility by clicking on the weigher box which will be red to indicate it is in alarm condition. This facility has been completely rewritten to provide a more intuitive interface for operators. Fundamentally the old version would ask a series of questions to ascertain how the operator wanted to deal with the short fall of material. In the new version the operator is presented with full details of the shortfall and several buttons that allows them to quickly select and perform one of the following options:-

  • No substitution – ignore shortfall and move to next ingredient
  • Retry at end – weigh other ingredients required for scale and then retry weighing this shortfall at the end
  • Bin substitution – select another bin on another scale with the same material
  • Standard substitution -select other ingredients to weigh in replacement of the shortfall using a pre-configure standard substitution
  • Manual substitution – manual select other ingredients to weigh in replacement of the shortfall
