A typical Gantt Chart indicating production schedule for different products DISPATCHING Dispatching is "the selecting and sequencing of available jobs to be run at individual workstations and the assignment of those jobs to workers." A dispatch list is "a listing of manufacturing orders in priority sequence. The dispatch list is usually communicated to the manufacturing floor via hard copy or CRT display, and contains detailed information on priority, location, quantity, and the capacity requirements of the manufacturing order by operation. Dispatch lists are normally generated daily and oriented by work center". -APICS Dictionary Dispatching starts with input as route sheet and schedule chart. It concerns itself with starting the processes and operation of production. It triggers the starting of the production activity on the shop-floor through the release of orders and instructions, that are based on pre-planned times and sequences contained in route sheets and schedule charts. Dispatching determines the person who will do the job. Work order and authorizations are issued to perform the work according to a planned sequence, using prescribed tools and a time schedule. It is the duty of the dispatching function to issue requisition for material and tools on a production order. Dispatching is a process of translating production plan into output (action). This is because orders are issued for the movement of material, parts, and tools to the work centers, and it also includes instructions for the inspection and' recording of the work.
