Route Sheet

 

a document accounting for the output of production and tracing the sequence of operations of a batch of manufactured components. The route sheet is used in serial and especially individual production to show the workers’ output, calculate the wages of the workers, and exercise operative super-vision of the movement of parts in production. The route sheet accompanies the batch of components in all manufacturing operations to aid in supervising the observance of technological discipline and the preservation of all elements. Thus the route sheet combines the features of a managing and an accounting document, since it contains standardized data (such as time standards and cost) and information about the actual movement of the manufactured components and about the workers’ output in each operation. The route sheet has played a more important role since the introduction of automatic production control and of the use of network schedules.
