POINTS TO CONSIDERED IN 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
Raj

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.
for more details go for the SAP help.

  • How to consider production capacity plan on sales order's delivery date.

    HI experts,
    How to consider production capacity  on sales order's delivery date.
    Say for example :
    Production workcenter capacity to produce the XYZ material 10qty in a Day.
    today i have created the sales order XYZ materail qty of 100. lead days has give based of MMR 21 days 17-07-2010( 3 sundays)
    and in same day i have created other sales order XYZ material qty 5000 ,the lead days again it will came 17-07-2010.
    Now my client requiremnt is when the schedule days is confirming in the sale order it sholud also consider the production capacity planning also
    Even though my work centers are overloaded it is confirming the sales order on 17-07-2010 (based on leads days in MMR)
    Thanks in Advance..

    Sudha,
    Tell your client he needs to install SCM.  Here, you can use either CTP or MLATP to confirm orders based on production capacity.
    There are a couple of standard workarounds available in R/3. 
    One is to create a constrained forecast for planning materials, consistant with capacity, convert the forecast to PIRs, and then perform ATP against 'Planning' rather than against product, using MRP Strategy 63.
    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp60_sp/helpdata/en/a2/4e799a927d11d1800f00c04fadcb73/frameset.htm
    Another method is to leave the Sales orders unconfirmed at original order entry (eg, no lead time).  Run MRP, run capacity levelling, firm the levelled planned orders, and then run BOP (called 'rescheduling' in R/3) against the unconfirmed backlog, with an ATP that considers firmed planned orders as supply elements.  The sales orders will confirm against the planned orders, which are scheduled according to available capacity.
    Either of these two methods will work, but the CTP SCM solution is by far the better answer.  Downside of SCM solution in general is the substantial implementation effort required.

    Need your Inputs on issue

    Hi,
    This is a complex issue; best solution is by using APO/GATP.
    If not, then in ERP only, the second best is:
    1) Work with assembly processing in SO, meaning that a production/planned order is automatically created in the customer order during order creation.
    2) Then, after the order is created it is scheduled, and the delivery date proposal is based on that.
    3) Now you can check in the order that there are no capacity overloads, and all capacity required to produce on the proposed date is available. If yes, you're done. If not, it gets a bit complex, since you actualy need to switch to capacity planning, do capacity leveling and dispatch (PP), and the you get a new feasible schedule proposal based on that.
    APO/GATP could do all that automatically!

  • Capacity Planning for External Procurement Material

    Hi, I have the following requirements.
    MRP Scheduling is getting executed material level (material no, plant) with scheduling type 2 which means lead time scheduling using MD02 Transaction Code. This is works fine for the Inhouse Product. In order to achieve lead time the functional team has maintained the necessary routing/workcenter configs.
    The business needs the same functionality "Capacity requirements calculation" for the external procurement material. Business is willing to maintain routing/workcenter config.
    Currently standard program (MD02) is not considering the Capacity planning for the external Procurement material.
    Could you please suggest is it can be controlled through programming.
    Kindly suggest the function modules for Capacity Planning - materialwise, plantwise.
    Please suggest.
    Thanks
    Giri

    Hi Giri
        I think the requirement is not mentioned clearly. Capacity is required only if the material is assembled/produced in house.
    Anyway try this. Set the Procurement type to X in the MRP views in material master. You might have to define your custom material type so that it does not force the procurement type to F. Try the feature called "Quota arrangement". The idea is to define the material in such a way that it can be procured externally or produced in house. With quota arrangement you can say what % has to be bought and what % to be produced in house. If it is produced in house then you can have capacity requirements.

  • Consider preventive maintenance schedule into PP order capacity planning

    Hi PP experts,
    My client's requirement is that when a preventive maintenance order is created in PM module for a particular work center (used in production) on a given date, NO production order (which is processed on that work center) should get released or confirmed. In other words, the capacity should be blocked at all for the subject work center.
    Could you please guide how to make this effective?
    We are using discrete manufacturing with capacity planning. At the time of PP order release, system shows capacity situation so as to decide whether go-ahead even with overloaded capacity.
    Regards,
    HKV...

    First, you should assign the PP work center in the location tab of the PM equipment which refers this workcenter.
    Secondly you should enter the sytem condition in the task list of the equipment.
    During preventive schedule  the work center  will be reserved by PM orders for maintenance and this can be seen from capacity planning from PP side.

  • Purchase Requistion,Purchase Enquiry, Sales Enquiry,Capacity Planning & Sch

    Hi All,
    I am working in SAP business One for quiet long time as Functional Consultant and i am very much aware with its design. And Now SAP is bringing SAP HANA also for Mid Size Company or you can say in SAP Business One.
    BUT ...............
    In any industry vertical there is always requirement of Purchase Requistion (Department Wise) , Purchase Enquiry and sales enquiry is Must to buy or sell the Item.
    Why dont SAP is providing three different FORMS like sales Quotation , (Sales Enquiry) , Purchase Quotation (Purchase Enquiry) and Material Indent or Purchase Requisition (Dept. Wise) This i am spcifically asking just because the requestor doesn't knnow the Suppliers Name.
    And This functionality is in SAP ECC .
    This will reduce ADD ON
    MRP is enhanced so beautifully in Latest Version but only Capacity Planning & Sceduling is Missing.
    Capacity Planing and Sceduling if possible then I think Maximum Industry accross the World will consider SAP Business One
    I hope by this forum i am Just Pointing this. So that we can get in near future
    If anyone  gets any clue on this please let me know.
    Please Join hands if this feature what i discussed is really required .
    Thanks & Regards
    Ashish Gupte

    Hello Friend,
    I am very much agree with your suggestion
    But every one know that ECC is not for SMB sector so it is full flesh ERP compare SAP Business one and may be these form will part of SAP business one road map.
    Because SAP has added some rich process for MRP but after get suggestion from form and these link form http://forums.sdn.sap.com/forum.jspa?forumID=265&start=0
    and these given above link also is a good place for your question

  • SOA - EAM capacity planning

    I have been handed an assignment to prepare "capacity planning documentation" for what is termed "Enterprise Application Messaging"(EAM). I am looking at the documentation for Oracle Fusion Middleware and in particular Oracle® Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle WebLogic Server 12c Release 1 (12.1.1) which has some basic installation prerequisites. This is a good start but I know that there is more to capacity planning in the context of this EAM notion like for instance a database to persist messages etc and then there are the "speeds and feeds" to consider.
    My question is: Are there any white papers, best practices or Open World presentations that are more current than the 10g documentation and presentations I have found on searching that would cast the Oracle Fusion middleware more in a "generic EAM context" than this 12 C product installation documentation I am looking at?

    Thank you for the quick reply and the great links you gave, I am reviewing them before proceeding.
    I agree, the EAM is a mysterious acronym...I'm not sure who dreamed it up, but to me, it means SOA and OSB and that is what we will be building in a new datacenter. I believe it may be a "home grown" acronym to try to keep from becoming too vendor oriented with our high level documentation...we have a bunch of Microsoft afecianados here who would like to place something like "Biztalk" into the mix, so maybe they got the powers to be to invent a more generic acronym.
    Yes, I have also found that I need to look at the 11g not 12C docs due to certification issues, hopefully resolved in a couple of weeks I'm told.
    There are some great diagrams you pointed me to and I sincerely appreciate your quick reply...thanks a million!

    I have number of machines and i want there individual capacity and efficency can we see that by any report or any tcode to see all capacity of machine.What is capacity leveling.
    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.

  • 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.

  • Any std report in Capacity Planning showing only dispatched orders/opns ?

    Hi CRP gurus:
    Does SAP has any standard report/transaction in Capacity Planning that shows (or has a selection for showing) only "dispatched" orders/opns ?
    - Chetan

    Chetan,
    Use transaction COOIS. In this choose Operations, System status as DSPT at operation level, enter plant and execute. You will get only orders and the operations which are dispatched in this plant.
    You can navigate to the capacity planning table from the selected records through order change.
    Hope this is ok with you,...reward points..and close.

  • HR personnel availability as input to PM labor capacity planning

    Good Day SAP Gurus!
    I am looking at using HR's personnel availability as input to PM capacity planning.
    I am planing to take this approach;
    1.Reference HR in shift definition in IMG
    2.Use the shift grouping in Work Ctr capacity header
    3.Define Interval of Available Capacity using the shift defined
    Appreciate your valuable inputs for the above steps to ensure it will work as well as the transactions/table to check personnel availability between HR and PM.
    Also, I have read that I can use "Performing Work Center" in operations of capacity category "personnel" for the same purpose but I don't know how this works.
    Anyone has better approach? Thanks a lot in advance!!

    Hi
    without knowing the answer:
    i would first check the integration points of PErsonnel Time Management with other SAP Applications. As far as I remember is the "CATS" (Cross Application Time Services) function collecting data for cross company topics, like capacity leveling tasks.

  • Capacity planning (performance tuning of WLP 8.1 SP6 application)

    Hi Guys,
    I have one question regarding the performance tuning of the weblogic portal application (or may be any J2EE application for that matter) :
    I understand that there could be lot of performance bottleneck areas e.g
    (a) network issues (not enough bandwidth),
    (b) bottleneck because of the DBs,
    (c) application design/coding
    (d) JVM might not have been tuned as per the business requirement of the application
    (e) lack of clustering
    (f) hardware problems (CPUs, RAMs etc)
    Inorder to do the capacity planning for such an enterprise applications, what would be the best starting point?
    Is it a good idea to start and profile the application using some profiling tools like OptimizeIt or JProbe? and then analyze the profiling the data and conclusion can be drawn interms of what and where the major bottleneck is into the application and accordingly it can be worked upon.
    Or if there is any better and elegant way doing capacity planning?
    Thanks for your time.
    Regards
    Jameel

    Hi
    id say start with a load tool that simulates average/ peak behavior with varied inputs and exercise your site . then profile if necessary.
    Also start with the critical/most used portions of your site.
    Its difficult doing the above because unles your migrating noone really knows the expected usage of your site. And its hard for someone to specify acceptable response times.

    Hi,
    1. Do cross forest authentication Go through Global Catalog?
    Yes, cross-forest authentication relies on Global Catalogs of both forests.
    2.  Do Global catalogue cache ad object info if they are in different Forest. If not, how does the authentication request flow across the forest?
    GC doesn’t cache information for objects from another forest. However, once a user has been authenticated and authorized, its service ticket remains (on the local machine) for a while before it logs off. The authentication request
    is first received by the local DC, then GC, when GC couldn’t find a match in its own forest, it checks its database for trust information, if there is a name suffix matched, the authentication request is passed to the corresponding forest.
    3. Is this calculation still the same when considering cross forest trusts?
    Yes, establishing forest trust doesn’t consume much more space, because GC doesn’t store information of another forest.
    4. Do we need to consider any other memory requirements in a cross forest trust environment?
    Not really, as I mentioned above.

  • 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.
