Capacity planning and levelling

My client has around 8 different production areas and I have created 8 different order types,production schedulers,capacity planner groups and production scheduling profiles for the same. I have also created a list profile,selection profile, graphical profile, optional profile and an overall profile with my understanding.
1. I want to see for a given production area, In the morning, the user has to take the list of work centres pertaining to his area and fix priorities. In case he wants to move certain orders to next day and want to insert new orders in place of that, how to do this?
2. How can I utilise the feature of capacity planning, to evaluate my capacity requirements for new projects?
3. I want the step by step instructions for doing the capacity levelling both in graphical/tabular forms. Also please explain the purpose of different profiles used for capacity planning like selection,option,list etc.

Capacity planning comprises the following partial components:
Capacity Evaluation
In the capacity evaluation, available capacity and capacity requirements are determined and compared with each other in lists or graphics.
You can use capacity evaluations to analyze capacity loads in your company.
Capacity leveling
The objectives of capacity leveling are:
1.     Optimal capacity commitment
2.     Selection of appropriate resources
3.     In most applications, you can use two types of planning table (graphical and tabular versions) to display the capacity situation and to carry out capacity leveling.
4.     In some applications such as Repetitive Manufacturing (PP-REM) or Sales and Operations Planning (PP-SOP), there are application-specific planning tables for capacity leveling.
The objectives of capacity leveling include:
u2022     Leveling overloads and under loads at work centers
u2022     Achieving optimum commitment of machines and production lines
u2022     Selection of appropriate resources
Dispatching Operations
Dispatching operations is the main function of capacity leveling. Operations are dispatched to the time when there is sufficient capacity for them to be executed. You can also dispatch sub-operations and work elements.

  • Capacity planning and hardware sizing

    I would like to know in detail about capacity planning and hardware sizing while deploying oracle database products. I need to know about properly planning the infrastructure and configuring and deploying the products. Moreover, when should we use RAC,how many nodes, exadata, DR etc. How to size hardwares RAM,Disk for this kind of implemetations.
    I know it depends on budget and environment. Still if anyone kindly give some links/docs I will be able to have a decent start in this domain.

    See , they all depend on your company policy and the database size that they are going to have.
    1. Size : i have worked on databases sizing from 80G to 2000G , all depending on the client or the industry you are catering to.
    2. hardware and Ram : Server Team should know this better , you can have a simple small server if the DB and application are small and the usage would be less. If it a full fledged system with high load then you need to get in touch with your server team and raise an oracle SR for exact specifications for that database and also plan for some future growth.
    3. RAC : depends on the project if it requires such a setup.
    4. DR : is for disaster management. Also all companies implement this by adopting data guard ( physical standby).
    5. For having a good start , start reading the books and refer to oracle documentation. More you refer , more knowledge you will get .
    Start with the basics.... make your basics strong.. and then move ahead with complex setups.

    Is thee any configuration for capacity planning.
    Thanks in advance

    Hi, the following configuration steps involved in the capacity planning: SPRO --> IMG --> PRODUCTION --> CAPACITY REQUIREMENT PLANNING Capacity Requirements Planning: 1) Define time units 2) Define Capacity Category 3) Set up Capacity Planner. 4) Define parameters 5) Define Standard value key. 6) Define Move time matrix. 7) Define Setup matrix. 8) Define Control Key. 9) Define Shift Sequence. 10) Define Key for performance efficiency rate. 11) Define Formula parameters. 12) Specify Scheduling type. 13) Set up Production scheduler group 14) Select Automatically. 15) Define Scheduling parameters for Production orders 16) Define Scheduling parameters for networks. 17) Define Reduction Strategies planned/ production orders. 18) Define Reduction Strategies for network/process orders. 19) Define Control Profile. 20) Define Selection profile. 21) Define time profile. 22) Define Evaluation profile. 23) Define Strategy Profile. You can follow these above configuration steps in capacity planning Yes you need to active your all work center for the finite scheduling at the bottom of capacity view. Use all standard SAP configurations, Capacity Leveling Profile. Define time profile in OPD2. Define the strategy profile in OPDB Define the Overall profiles in OPD0. Then only you need to to active your all work center for the finite scheduling at the bottom of capacity view in work center.(CR02) Then run MRP with scheduling- 2 Lead time scheduling and capacity planning.(MD02) You will get your capacity requirement in CM01, or CM25/CM21. In rem you can use MF50. -

  • Capacity planning and schedulng production order based on availabe capacity

    Hi Gurus,
    I am trying to use capacity planning, when the production order is created it takes the order start date as the requirement date. Then when i do he capaity check it says capaity not available. After finite scheduling again it proposes to shift operations by certain days.
    I need the capity to be check in MRP and the palled orders to have start dates based on aviable capity, currenty all the palled orders are starting on the requirement date irresptive of avaiabe capaity. I tried using finite scheduling option in MD02 still it does not take in to account exsting production orders for giving dates of the planned orders.

  • REM Planning table - Capacity requirements and Levelling.

    Hi i have few queries in REM planning table.
    In REM planning table MF50 my selection is based on entire plant. Here in total capacity data tab for any particular plant it will show the list of work centers which are maintained in particular plant to know the capacity details as per our requirement.
    1.When i select any WC line and click on change capacity display from CRP it is giving break up with required and available capacity hours for any particular WC available time is assume 22.5 hrs per day which is given in operating time in capacity header in WC but in MF50 it is showing 23hrs.I have defined shift sequence in OP4A and assigned in capacity header grouping which have 3 shift with 30 mins break in each shift which results in 22.5 hrs working for a day so in shift sequence and operating time it is mentioned as 22.5 hrs is the time available for day but in MF50 it is showing 23 hrs available for day?
    2.What is due% in MF50 total capacity data for any work center and how required time would be calculated?
    Appreciate if any one has any example.

    Hi bump for any suggestions?
    i have noticed one thing the time available is a round up value actual time available as per capacity header is 22.5 but in MF50 it is showing as 23..if i change to 21.5 then it is showing 22hrs available per day is this the standard behaviour?
    can anyone tell me how the required time is calculated?

  • Capacity Planning vs. Capacity Leveling

    My production facility is looking to divide up our shop floor by work centers.  There are about 20 individual work centers that are composed of 10 people each.  Each material we make is divided up into 3 operations which go through 3 separate work centers.  Each operation has a corresponding work center that it goes through.
    Right now we are unsure which program suits our needs better, Capacity Planning or Capacity Leveling.
    Our goal is to measure each individual work center (not the workers that make up the work center).  Each work center has a specific goal involving the number of materials they can produce, whether or not they reached that goal and by how many.
    In a nutshell, we want to be able to measure how long it took each work center to reach their individual goals by the materials they produce.
    This is all about measuring the individual work centers and how efficient they are.  Our goal is to be able to utilize this data within SAP.
    What is the difference between Capacity Planning and Capacity Leveling, and which would better suit our goals?
    Our production facility is not very complicated and we're looking for something simple and basic within SAP to accomplish these goals.
    All help is appreciated.  What would be your recommendations for this type of situation?

  • What is the basic difference between Hyperion Planning and HFM

    Hi GURU'S,
    what is the basic difference between Hyperion Planning and HFM and when do we choose them.

    On a high level the difference is this:
    1. HFM is best for global collection (collecting data from scattered entities), group consolidation and for easily structuring financial reporting (mainly consisting of financial data)
    2. Planning is best for modeling your business, starting from a demand forecast and arriving to capacity planning and finally to financial statements, by utilizing business drivers (non-financial data like volumes, prices, productivity rates etc)
    Of course, differences may be analyzed at several levels down to technical, but the discussion may turn out to be too long, yet adding little value to the question: "when do we choose the one over the other". Bear in mind that your requirements may turn out that you need both.

  • Issue in Capacity Planning

    Hi Experts,
    I am using process orders in our project. When I use the capacity planning to level the capacity through transaction CM21, I can despatch the operation without any issue and the associated phase also is getting despatched.
    But if I want to deallocate the despatched operation, Iam not able to do that. System says the message, phase can not be deallocated. But once I despatch I find only one line assigned and not two lines as before despatch.
    How to select the operation after despatch and how to deallocate?
    Please help

    Hi Experts,
    How to go about Capacity Planning? For  instance if clients wants to upgrade to new server and new storage and asks us how much additional storage do you need for next 5 years, how can calculate the amount of storage.
    I don't have any baseline info about the server of past years. Where can I start and any scripts you guys use for doing capacity planning?

    Dear PP GURUS,
    can any one pl. help me by explaning what r the imp. points to b considered during implementing capacity planning
    thanks and regards

    1) You need to maintain work scheduling view for all E parts.
    2) In customizing mainatin the overall profile for capacity planning and assign this to materoal master in work scheduling view.
    3) In production orders and planne dorder scheduling paarmeeter (in customizing) enable the indictore "generate capacity reqs".
    4) Control key in rotuings must have the same indicator checked "gen cap reqs".
    5) MRP must be run to create cacapcity reqs if you are using MRP.
    6) You must be aware about the resources lke work centers and labours. in the capacity you must checked the capacities are relevent to "finite scheudling".
    7) Work center must hace formulas...all sormuals must be relevent for scehduling and capacity requirements.

  • Capacity Planning & capacity leveling

    Dear All,
    If we have two Sales Orders in the same date for two different materials which will use the same work center for processing, and if we run the MRP then two planned orders will be generated. Here according to the capacity planning the system will calculate the number of days required to process in the work center and the job will be assigned to the work center for planned order 1. Then when the system tries to allocate jobs from the planned order 2 to the same work order then the system will show the over load. Then we have to do capacity leveling to remove the over load.
    But the clientu2019s requirement is that when the system calculates the available capacity of a work center in the planning horizon, the system should not consider the time for which the job is already assigned from the planned order 1. And the system should assign the job from the planned order 2 to the work centeru2019s available (capacity) time excluding the (capacity) time for which the job is already assigned from the planned order 1 in that planning horizon. If there is no Available capacity in that planning horizon then the system shall show the over load and then the client shall go for the capacity leveling.
    How to go about Please help.

    Hello Satish,
    Let me understand you issue:
    You would like system to give overload only when there is no capacity available in planning horizon.
    Did you try using tabular planning board ? Tabular planning board uses bucket principle. It will give overload only when the whole bucket is full. It will not check the date and time of planned order # 1. While allocating capacity to plannined order # 2, the bucket's full capacity will be checked.  In your case try allocation bucket size equal to your planning horizon period.

    I assume that you have Capacity Requirement Planning set up in place .
    You can check the Work Centre capacity overload  or capacity analsisy in CM05/CM01 day wise /week wise all those set up .
    Please enter work centre , plant code -Hit standrad view -goto general option -setting -select periods Day .By default it will come  as week .Or you can execute and then choose Profile -Option Profile -Select SAPB010 day wise .Like wise you can analise the caapctiy situation .
    Capacity level in spossble throuh CM21-Work Centre wise Graphaical View -Select the operationj against planned order -Hit dispatch button at the top -if you have available capacity on the required date , time , then those operation will be dispatched and also you will recieve the Scehduling Log.
    I think you should try this frist in sandbox to simulate the business requirement based on your CRP set up.
    You can also use call function  : CBP_EXC_WC_CAPACITY_REQUEST'  for   available capacity of a work center and use CY01_DISPATCHING_OPR_DATES_CHK  for dispatch
    refer my earlier thread : Capacity Leveling of Work Center

  • Enterprise level capacity planning

    I am trying to look at capacity planning at an enterprise level and wish to get summarized views of captured data across a number of hosts and instances. I would like to be able to see the tablespace stats for all of our instances in one graph or report, and not have to view each one separately. The OEM capacity planner does not seem to provide any such views and from what I have discovered in the repository it looks as though separate tables are created to hold captured data for each instance eg table space data for prod01 will be in table a, tablespace data for xcpt02 will be in table b.
    Has anybody got any ideas on how to use the Capacity Planner for Enterprise Level Capacity Planning?

  • Transferring Open Items, Instalment Plans and Dunning Level

    Hi all,
    We are implementing SAP IS-U for a water suplly company and we have a process in which an Installation is transferred from a Business Partner to another. For this we are using the Move-in / Move-Out functionality (trx EC60).
    So far, so good. The problem is that we also should transfer also the Open Items, Instalment Plans and Dunning level to the new Business Partner and new Contract Account.
    The questions is: can we transfer these automatically?
    We thought in different scenarios in case this is not possible, so I would appreciate if you can give us an opinion:
    1 - Use FP40 transaction and transfer FICA elements manually
    2  - Create a FOP process to perform step by step the process from CIC0. The only problem I have found is that there is not any object that allows me to transfer the open items. Does it exist? If not, this option is not valid
    3 - Use the "Change CUstomer" Functionality. Did you have any experience using this funcionalidty? The main issue I have with this is that the system generates a dummy invoice, the Move in Date is in the future, and the Account must be closed.
    Please any information will be very helpful. Thank you very much in advance!
    Best Regards,

    Hi Lucas,
    You can transfer the open items and the dunning level manually to the new BP and CA through transaction code FP40.
    You need to maintain the following configuration settings in the posting area 1055-
    Curr-Currency of the Cocd
    Clearing Reason-Clearing reason used for transfer
    Document Type-Document Type used for Transfer
    Only all items- blank
    Transfer DL-X
    Moreover, you cannot transfer Instalment Plans through FP40, as instalment plan items are statistical in nature.
    Hope it clarifies.....
