This feature was added in vintrace Version 6.1.1
In countries outside of USA, a Work Order is referred to as a Cellar Note. In keeping with regional terminology differences, please substitute Work Order for Cellar Note below.
This example will show you how to schedule a topping operation to instruct a cellar hand to use specific barrels in the group and then complete the operation from vintrace. Firstly, we will create a work order for a topping operation where the topping material is in a barrel group.
Go to File – Work order from writer to bring up the work order writer. Click on Add job and select Multi topping.
This will bring up the Multi topping operation screen. Select a barrel group in the vessel field of Top From section then click on the barrel config icon.
In the Barrel group list screen, select the barrel you want the cellar hand to use as the topping material and then click on Ok button. The selected barrel is highlighted yellow in the screen and will show up in the printed work order.
Click on Add to work order to add the job and then save the work order.
Let us assume that the job has been performed by the cellar hand, so we go into vintrace and complete the operation. Bring up the work order for the topping either by using the barrel scanner to scan the barcode on the work order or typing the TWL number into the barcode entry. In the example below, we have clicked on the barcode icon and entered the TWL number into the barcode entry field.
Click on Complete button on the work order.
Click on the barrel config icon beside the barrel group in the Top From section.
This will bring up the Barrel group list screen, and the barrel that was selected as topping material during scheduling is highlighted in yellow.
Let us assume that a quarter of the barrel was used as topping material, so we want to set the new volume of the barrel that was used for topping to three quarters.
Firstly, you need to select Work out volume from Barrel details option. In this mode, you can specify the fill status (Full, Three quarters, Half, Quarter) of each individual barrel at the end of the topping job.
Next, since a quarter of the barrel was used, set remaining volume in the barrel by setting the the Fill state of the selected barrel to Three quarters (this will be the status of the barrel at the end of the topping operation).
After setting the Fill status of the barrel to Three quarters, the Volume out is updated automatically to 15 gal (quarter of the barrel’s current volume). Click on Ok button to save.
In the multi topping operation screen, the Out (gal) is set to 15. Click on Apportion Out(gal) button to apportion the volume out among all the barrel groups to be topped. Then click on Now+Save button to complete the operation.
