The scalable formula lines. Let us get into more discussion about it. So as you notice, if you have a formula size as an example, you have a polymer quantity that has been sent as a scalable, solvents quantity as a scalable, and catalyst quantity, which should be not-scalable, it should be always the same regardless of the formula size. Let us say you are increasing or decreasing the formula size, what will happen? As you notice, if you are reducing the value of a scalability depending on what you are doing, the constant value of a catalyst should stay the same, therefore the combination of these is going to reduce the formula size or vice versa. If you are increasing the polymer and solvent, it is going to increase the formula size as you saw. So let us see it in action. And look at the scenario. USPI has a new mixer, and it is going to produce a specific product PW4000, which is 2.5 times the size of a current mixer, which has a capacity of 2,500 pounds. So your engineering departments would like to have a ratio of the materials to be changed however one of them stays the same. Everything will be changed except for the additive, which should only double. We need to basically create this formula. All we need to do, define certain scalable formula, which we saw a bit of it. But now, based on a scenario, we try to put everything into perspective for you. So again, go to the USPI. I am indeed starting by going through the Product information management, Released products. Search for the product that has already been defined, I did not want to waste the time, that is polypropylene pellets. And as a matter of fact, if you take a look at the Engineer, and look at the Formula version, you have already took the liberty and set up all of the raw materials in this formula. And the formula says it is 1,000. Let us say this is 1,000. But based on a scenario, you have a new mixer, so you have bunch of raw materials from MW4004 goes through 4008, et cetera. And these are the quantity 867, 97, 87, 59, and 18 pounds per 1,000 series. However, what we like to do? You like to take a look into a brand new formula. Based on the scenario, we take advantage of the copy feature for the large mixer as you have seen before. And if I go to one of the sites, which happens to be only one in this demo data, I pick and choose the formula version, and I copy it over. So everything comes over, you have already seen that before. And that is a new formula ID. And here, I need to adjust some of these quantities. As you see, none of these values has been changed. Everything has been copied over for the large mixer, but we need to adjust a few things. So we go back to the M4004. And as a matter of fact, you notice that every single value that I had are exactly the same. But based on the engineering department and their recommendation, I need to turn on the scalability for all of these items but the additive. So the only item that is not going to be changed, the checkbox is not scalable to be indeed additive product. Now let us see what would that be the difference in regard to selecting it or not. If I change the formula size easily to test it before I even take it to the production from 1,000 to 2,500 which actually has to be set up anyways for this new formula that dictates my scenario for the large mixer. As I go through this, I say from what formula size it is going to be valid? I say from 2,500. You use the large mixer. This is important not only for finding out the raw materials and their adequate quantity that needs to be brought over into the shop floor, but also is taking advantage of supply schedule board and perhaps finding out the capability resources and all that which schedules it accordingly. And in case, the Production Floor Manager wants to reschedule, they need to also consider the validity of the formula. But now take a look at this, everything has been scaled up. Now you have the first through the third line that have changed but the fourth line has not. So 2,167, 242, 217, they have all changed but the 59 has not. And you can compare them. The additive was the only one that was not scalable. And if I wanted to do a quick comparison by clicking back on the original formula, you notice that indeed 59 stays the same but the rest of it has been scaled up. So that is a very nice feature, in regard to the formula, makes the job a lot easier, save time, and more accurate. So now you have seen this. Of course, you could override it and say, you know what, you just have to double this. Remember, based on my scenario, 59, you double, it becomes 118. You do not want to make it scalable, you want to make it constant as twice as much due to the engineering fact.
