6 Through IMPACT Cast Planning module, elements can be assigned to cast units (beds, tables or pallets). The configuration of the cast module is done in the Resource Manager and includes settings in:
7
8 * Working Calendar
9 * Factories
10 * Divisions
11 * Cast Units
12 * Status
13
14 = (% style="color:inherit; font-family:inherit" %)Simple example(%%) =
15
16 We have created a simple example, this example illustrated the basic functionality of the cast planning module.

23 Casting an element can be divided into three steps:
24
25 1. Selecting the element/elements that we wish to put on a cast unit.
26 1. Positioning the elements, optimizing the area used for casting.
27 1. Marking the cast unit (bed, table or pallet) as Produced.
28 1*. This also changes the status type of the elements on that cast unit, from planned to produced.

39 = Selecting elements to cast =
40
41 Selecting elements for cast can be done both in the Project Manager and in the Resource Manager.
42
43 There are two main differences when working with one or the other:
44
45 1. In the Project Manager, marking an element can be done both in the model view and in the element ID grid. But only from one project at a time.
46 1. In the Resource Manager, marking an element can be done only in the element ID grid. However, it can be done for several projects at the same time.
47
48 = Positioning the elements on cast =
49
50 Now, we are in the cast module. The element has been selected for a cast, either from the Project Manager or the Resource Manager.
51
52 There are two different views where we can insert the element:
53
54 * Calendar view

56 [[image:1542723825942-720.png||height="515" width="1024"]]
57
58 Figure 2, Cast planning - calendar view
59
60 Also, double-clicking on a cast in the calendar view will send the user to the detailed view for that cast.
61
62 * Detailed view

65
66 Figure 3, Cast planning - detailed view
67
68 We may now rotate and modify the position of the elements so that an optimum fit and area usage can be achieved.
69
70 There is also a third view, the Cast view, where we can mark our tables and see the elements that are on that table, please see figure 4.

86 (% class="wikigeneratedid" %)
87 By modifying the filter, the user may show the desired casts.
88
89 = Marking the cast unit as Produced =
90
91 When the cast is done and the elements are ready to be either delivered or sent to storage, the cast unit should be marked as Produced. This can be accomplished in all three views of the cast module:
92
93 * Calendar view
94 * Detailed view
95 * Cast view (don't (% style="background-color:#f6d5d9" %)forget (%%)to use the filter)
96
97 If the user wishes the elements that have been positioned on a cast unit to change status, this needs to be set in the Resource Manager settings.
98
99 = Exporting from the cast planning module =
100
101 Exports from the cast planning module can be done directly on the cast unit/units. The following exports are available:
102
103 * Pallet Queue
104 * Unitechnik
105 * BVBS
106 * PXML
107 * STL
108
109 = Element Control System =
110
111 A user can add controls to elements from Cast Planning, to be able to add a control the element must be planned for production. As displayed below you can see an icon for going to the controls.

117
118 When the user clicks on the icon a new window will appear. From the you can add controls to the element.

123 Figure 7, Opening the dialog for adding new controls
124
125 This will yet again open a new window where controls can be selected and added to the element, these controls have been defined under settings in Resource Manager.

128
129 Figure 8, Adding a new control to an element
130
131 Once done the controls will be added. As can be seen in the image below, each controls have sub-controls and images attached to them. There are two kinds of sub controls, simple and measure.
132
133 The measured controls may also have images attached to them. The status of each control tells the user if the control is check or not. If using the status machine the status of an element will change to planned and approved or produced and approved depending on what kind of status type the control has.
134

136
137 Figure 9, Viewing and editing a control attached to an element
138
139 There are three kinds of status types, No status, Planned and Approved, Produced and Approved. In the calendar, in Cast you can turn on Element Colors to see what elements have passed their checks and which haven't.
140
141 Inspection Images are also available for every control. This allows the user to attach images as proof or guarantee that the element has been inspected correctly before checking the control. Here it's possible to upload images or view and delete existing images. To be able to directly upload Inspection Images with a timestamp this is available with [[Impact Go>>https://wiki.impact.strusoft.com/xwiki/bin/view/IMPACT%20Applications/IMPACT%20Mobile/]].

150
151 Now the cell in the calendar will change color if they to red if they have planned/produced elements where at least one of the elements have a control of the type "planned and approved" that has not been passed.
152
153 If there are elements that are produced but have a control of the type "produced and approved" that haven't passed the cell will also be red.
154
155 However, if the controls have passed then the cell will be green.

161 == Add controls for multiple elements in the calendar view ==
162
163 This feature enables the user to select multiple elements at the same time in the calendar view. The user can then add element controls for the selected elements, see figure 12.
