Reduction of Available Capacity

Post by lotus74 » Thu Aug 25, 2005 4:00 pm

Using CM01 with the Standard Overview: Details view there is a field to display Remaining capacity requirements for Processing. The value displayed is only reduced when qtys are confirmed. Does anyone know of a way to display standard hours minus confirmed hours regardless of the confirmed qty.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I believe that the capacity looks to the remaining quantity to be produced to determine the remaining hours for a production order. SAP does not look at the hours to date against the total planned hours to determine the remaining hours required.

Where PP hours are entered via CATS we modified the program we created that transfers CATS to the production orders to calculate the yield for each confirmation. This is a bit rough if you have small production quantities, i.e. if production quantity is 2 you can only enter a yield of 1 or 2 typically. If you are using MRP and planned orders you will also need to set the MRP control parameter "scheduling" to 2 (planned orders - lead time scheduling and capacity planning) otherwise planned orders are not included in the capacity requirements.

lotus74, did you ever come up with a solution to this issue? We would like accomplish the same type of thing. We want the capacity reduction to occur as a result of clocked labor NOT confirmed quantities.
