You can use the Designer form to create different versions of a production route because of variations in the production of an item or to provide additional production process control.

For example, if a small quantity of an item must be produced, it may be more economical to run it through a different route using machines with less capacity and that cost less to run. It could be more cost efficient to use the original route for large production orders that use high-capacity machines.
