Dynamic Update of Routing Operation Comments
Answers to the QAD Configurator questionnaire can be used to dynamically update the comments for operations in the variant routing.
Routing Maintenance in QAD EA has a Comments field. When this field is set to Yes, you can add comment text that is printed on shop floor documents for work orders for the item. Sometimes it is helpful to inform the shop floor of one or more answers from the questionnaire. To include information from questionnaire answers, you can refer to the QAD Configurator feature name in the comments of the applicable operation by putting the name of the feature in brackets [ ].
Example:  
Comments Operation 10 (Generic routing):
The required specifications for the product are:
Length = [length]
Width = [width]
Color = [color]
As soon as a new variant routing is created, the customer’s selected values (answers) for these questions are used to fill out these fields. In the previous example:
Comments Operation 10 (Variant routing):
The required specifications for the product are:
Length = 120
Width = 80
Color = white
You do not need to set up anything in QAD Configurator to make this work. It requires the definition of the routing comments for the relevant operations in the generic routing in QAD EA.
