Dear friends
We are having Oven & drying process, our process Parameters are given below
Oven capacity is 5 no’s
Process time is same up to 5 no’s 100 min

Base qty is 5 Process time is 100 min
Base qty is 1 Process time is 100 min

I have maintained routing as mentioned below

Scenario 1

Base qty is 5 Machine time 100 min If my production order qty 1 System proposal Lead time is 20 min But actual lead time is 100 Min

Exceptation

Scenario 2

Base qty is 1 Machine time is 100 if my production order qty is 5 System proposal Lead time is 500 min But actual lead time is 100 Min

Arun,

This is not an SAP question, just a modelling issue. There is no one way to model it, it is judgmental and depends on your experience.

In this case, your formulas in both examples are linear, not according to the step that you want in terms of 5. You may need to write your own formula, something like:

( round(quantity/5 -1) * 5 +1 ) * 100

if the quantity <= 5, round (quantity/5-1) = 0, therefore it is 100.

If quantity is 8 (>5 but <=10) then round (quantity/5-1) = 1, therefore it computes to 200.

..and so on.

Once again, this is just how I thought, soon as I saw your question. There could be other ways to do it.

Did you try to play with the individual capacities in the work center and the required split in the routing operation?


I'd define the work center with 5 individual capacities, and in the routing I'd set the 'required split' to 5.
Standard time 100 minutes per 1 pcs.

Being PCs the splitted quantity should be an integer. so with an order quantity of 2 you should have 2 splits with a run time of 100, with 15 pcs you should have 5 splits of 300 minutes each.

This will probably solve the scheduling part. Not sure about the capacity evaluation.
But it would be wrong also in your case, I think.
