Support for parallel or overlapping operations in BOM and scheduling

Many manufacturing companies', particularly those that use work cells, production process includes overlapping operations where an operation will start before the previous one is completely finished. For instance, a forge work center may have a work order for 200 units and the trimming operation that follows will start after the first 20 are complete.

Currently, scheduling is based on operations being completed sequentially. Adding support for overlapping or parallel operations will provide needed functionality. This has been a gap we have failed to overcome in several deals.

    Just a big hole in the mfg and will affect anyone who has any kind of overlapping scheduling requirements. This is costing us deals as we move macola customers as this is standard functionality. But it should be standard regardless.
