In Artemis, zones can be any physical area where plants are stored and moved inside a facility. A zone could be a room, a row, a series of towers, or rafts. Zone names are customizable and should match how users normally think about your physical space.
Further, you can set up Subzones within Zones to track more detailed movement of batches.
Creating a Zone:
Step 1: Hover over your user name and click Settings.
Step 2: Click on Zones in the left menu bar.
Step 3: Scoll to find the Stage in which you want to create your zone and click the + Add Zone button on the right side.
Step 4: Name the zone in the Zone Name field. Name the zone whatever it's called in your facility. Example include Germination, Veg, and Nursery.
Step 5: In the Stage dropdown, select the corresponding stage or substage for that zone. As a note, when a batch is this zone, it will be listed in the corresponding stage/substage tab in the Production list.
Step 6: The Default Unit dropdown is to note the default batch unit. This will help later with utilization reports in the Reports tab.
Step 7: Input the Capacity in terms of batch units set in the previous step. For example, if you select Rafts as a default unit, input the total number of rafts that can fit into this zone.
Step 8: Grow Space Area is to note the square footage of the grow area or canopy. If your zone is vertical, the add the area of all your levels.
Step 9: Click the green Save button to save New Zone.
Creating Subzones (Optional):
Step 1: Once the initial zone is saved, you can add a subzone as second step. Click + Add Subzone and name each subzone. You can remove any subzone by clicking the Delete button.
