How do I add time to a operation.

How do I add time to an operation? Sometimes we have inprocess inspection or gauging as part  of the machining op. I need this extra time to roll up so it is reflected in the total time at the end of the program.

Traditionally, this was done with the TIME/ post command when we used a CLS file, but there is no OOTB event to do the equivalent. You can do this if you are experienced with posts.

 

Within the post, you need to add the time to $mom_machine_time.

 

If you have an event for your inspection, then in the proc for this event, you can adjust the time.

 

If you do not have an event, then you can either create a new UDE for time, or add a replacement MOM_text proc to account for the TIME major word.

Hi Mark,
I have been trying to use the to $mom_machine_time. I wrote a ude that allowed the programmer to add time to the operation. I was able to get the machine time and the added operation time to add together and output the total time. The issue become when you add the next operation. The new total time does not roll up into the next operation. $mom_machine_time seems to be running in the back ground and totaling based on the operation. Any added time from the operation does not stay with $mom_machine_time.

At the end of the program $mom_machine_time is the total run time without any of the added time from operation.

I hope this is not to confusing.
Thanks for your response.

Roland,
I talked to the developers, and they say you can add additional cutting time and non-cutting time during posting for each operation (for any reason). The variables you should use are mom_sys_add_cutting_time & mom_sys_add_non_cutting_time. They get zeroed at the start of each oper. These extra times will be added to the total mom_cutting_time & mom_machining_time. When the additional time is passed to the post using these 2 variables, it will get accumulated.
