Regarding work center hierarchy

Hi all,
I have 2 work centers liked to a superior work center in a hirarchy.
Is it possible to do capacity planning at the superior work center level.
The scenario is like this - I will get planned order at a superior work center level. I will  convert the planned order into 2 production orders with child work centers in respective order.
Now I want that, when I see the capacity overview for the superior work center, it should be full. That means I want to link the capacities of the child work centers to the parent work center. 
Please let me know if it is possible ?
Regards,
Yogesh

Hi,
Work center hierarchies are used in capacity planning to cumulate available capacity and capacity requirements. You can cumulate available capacities from subordinate work centers to a superior work center level in order to determine the total available capacity for the superior work center.
In your situation, I think you need to create two planned orders with the two work centers and after this you will be able to see the capacity requirements cumulated at the superior WC.

  • Capacity cumulation in work center hierarchy

    Hello
    Does anyone uses workcenter hierarchies to cumulate capacity requirements ?
    I've created a hierarchy but in the capacity evaluation transaction cm01,
    the capacity requirements are not cumulated from the underlying work center.
    Instead a capacity requirement of zero is shown on the hierarchy work center.
    Is there any specifics to cumulate the capacity requirement to work center hierarchy header
    Best regards
    Pascal

    Hi,
      In the transaction CM01, choose the pull-down menu Settings-> General. In the pop-up screen, under the "Herarchy" tab, select the check boxes "Cumulation of reqmts" and "Dyn. capacity cumulation", choose the "Hierarchy" and "Plant" and click on "Continue".
    Now the "Available Capacity" will be as per hierarchy setup and Rem. avail cap = Reqmts-Available capacity.
    Hope this solves the requirement.

  • Work center Hierarchy

    Dear Gurus,
    How can I use work center Hierarchy for Capacity Planning.
    I have 5 Lathe machines. How can I use Work Center Hierarchy?
    I also need  Work Center Wise confirmation.
    Please guide me. Also let me know how should I maintain data in work center as well as in routing.
    Thanks in advance
    RG

    Create a new WC (in CR01) as category 0004. This will be the top level WC in your hierarchy. <BR sab="44">Create a hierarchy (in CR21). <BR sab="46">Add your 5 lathes and the newly created top level WC to the hierarchy (in CR22). This can be tricky: the WC you just created must be the top level, the other 5 must be under it. <BR sab="50">Pull the capacity data (in CM01) for the hierarchy: go to settings, hierarchy, check the cumulation of requirements and capacities and type the hierarchy name. <BR sab="54">Route things as before, to the original 5 lathes.

  • Work Center Hierarchy and Routing

    Hi,
    I would like to know what exactly Work Center hierarchy mean?. Where is it used. In Routing, we maintain Sequence of operation along with workcenter where this operations are performed . Would like to know does work center hierarchy is linked to sequence maintained in Routing?. Thanks

    Hi,
    Any one can explain me the use of Workcenter Hierarchy?. In Routing, we maintain the sequence of operations. Does Routing and Workcenter Hierarchy has relation?. If Yes, what is the relation between these 2.
    Thanks in advance

  • Capacity planning at Work center Hierarchy level

    Hi,
    I have created Work center Hierarchy, now want to see the cumulative capacity of subordinate work centers at Superior Work center level, but using cm01- std overview, i can't see.
    Can anybody tell me , what-ever is missing?

    HI Mangalraj,
    Thanks for your reply. I had tried that , even though there is no cummulation done.
    System is showing same error ,as 'There are no capacity requirements for the
    selection and settings'.
    what i have given input is Superior Work Center, Plant and Planner group.
    I didn't mentioned the capacity at superior WC.
    PLEASE HELP.

  • Upload/ download Work Center Hierarchy

    Hello All,
    I need your help with this one. Therefore thanks in Advace:
    Is there a way to download and upload work center hierarchies?
    The idea ist to download a complex hierarchy to a file and then upload it to another system/ client.
    Thanx
    Raf

    Hi Daniele,
    I just tried  the way you suggested:
    - RCRAPDX1 downloaded a txt to presentation server with data.
    - changed only the plant in file.
    - run RCRAPDX2
    unfortunately result is that ths system try to maintain the work centers within the file,
    (which are already maintained).
    The hierarchy structure won't be maintained.
    So what I look for is a manner to transport the complete hierarchy structure...

  • Work Center Hierarchy and Capacity

    Hello SAP friends,
    Can someone please help me with the following scenario?
    I have 3 Work Centers
    MAQ00 - (Capacity 10:00 x 2)
    MAQ01 - 8:00 -- 18:00 (Capacity 10:00)
    MAQ02 - 8:00 -- 18:00 (Capacity 10:00)
    I have a hierarchy
    HICY01
    MAQ00 - Root of hierarchy
    |_ MAQ01
    |_ MAQ02
    Then, I have a routing
    10 - PP01 - MAQ00 - 1H
    20 - PP01 - MAQ00 - 2H
    If I go to CM01 for Work Center MAQ00 I can see the capacity and requirement, where:
    Capacity: 10:00 x 2
    Requirement: 3:00
    But if I go to transaction CM21 for Work Center MAQ00 the capacity and requirement is not correct. Can someone please help me with this?
    Thanks in advance,
    Adelmo Silva

    Hi,
       CM01 will give the cumulative requirement as 3 hrs but CM21(Gradhical View) shows the individual spread of oprn. 10 and 20 as 1H and 2 H resp.
    Does the above help you?

  • Regarding Work Center Capacities

    Dear Exprts,
    How many Capacity Categories Can we maintain in Work center.
    Regards,
    MANOJ

    Dear Manoj,
    How many Capacity Categories Can we maintain in Work center.
    One can maintain any no of Capacity Categories in the work center, provided that you have actually defined/maintained
    that no of Capacity categories in customizing.
    So while creating work center you can have capacity categories like machine, person, processing unit, lab etc. as per requirements.
    Revert back in case of query,

  • Regarding  work center master creation In PP

    Hi Iam Kiran working on routings and work centers creation.I want to know how the  formulaes are derived for caluculating capacities,shedulling,Costing.where can I find study material regarding formulae derivation.For the above mentioned.Please respond if your having any material with respect to this content.

    Hi Kiran,
    Please use the following transaction to create/check the parameters & formulas,
    OP17 - Create formula parameter
    OP19  - Maintain standard value key. (The parameters created are entered in this standard value key & this std value key is used in the work center (CR03) basic data tab page)
    OP21 - Create Formulas
    These formulas are assigned in the capacity, scheduling & costing tab page in the workcenter.
    This workcenter is assigned to an operation in the routing (CA03).

  • Regarding work center configuration.

    Hi PP Gurus,
    We need to take an account to Rated Line Speed (Bottles per minute)  (i.e. It should be the current capacity of the bottling line operating at the full rated speed, irrespective of the bottling format).
    We're using Discrete Manufacturing scenario and work center (CR01). How could it be taken into account.
    Is there any alternte way to put an additional fiueld in work center create (CR01)/work center change (CR02) transaction code?
    Thanks & Regards,
    Abu Arbab
    Edited by: abu arbaba on Jan 30, 2009 9:46 AM

    hi,
    What I mentioned is ,  create a reference operation set of one operation with that particular work center  and maintain operation times as the speed of that line  ( 100 bottles for minute should be entered as base qty as 100 and time as 1 min).   Call this reference operation set in any routings that uses this line.
    If you do this,  you don't need additional field in work center and so don't get confused  with it.
    cheers

  • Work center hierarch cumulation problem

    hi
      I am trying to cumulate capacity requirement from 3 work centers...I created a work center hierarchy as below steps but I cann't see the cumulate result..it prompt no available capacity requirement or work center exist..anyone knows what I should do next?I can do capacity leveling/evaluation,so I think my IMG setting is good..i searched the SDN forum but no workable solution for me..
    thanks.
    Create a new WC (in CR01) as category 0004. This will be the top level WC in your hierarchy.
    Create a hierarchy (in CR21).
    Add your 5 lathes and the newly created top level WC to the hierarchy (in CR22). This can be tricky: the WC you just created must be the top level, the other 5 must be under it.
    Pull the capacity data (in CM01) for the hierarchy: go to settings, hierarchy, check the cumulation of requirements and capacities and type the hierarchy name.
    Route things as before, to the original 5 lathes.

    Hi ,
    Dispatching is used to allocate or schedule the planned orders in the work center/resource.
    We can use CM25 transaction-Graphical planning board for dispatching.
    Planner can assign /dispatch the planned orders manually here. He can see graphically the planned orders overload work center which are dispatched with other.
    Using cm21 you can do capacity levelling graphically or using cm22 can do cap levelling using tabular column.I feel using this would be easy.

  • Reg: Combined work center / Capacity requirement planning .

    Hi,
    i need few informations  regarding work center.
    1. Can we create Resource (for process industry) similar to that as Work center which we create for (discreate industry)
       can i use the workcenters (CR01) instead of Resource(CRC1) to my master recipe. is there any impact by using workcenter instead of resource to master recipe..?
    2 In foundry we are using some Iron Plates for resting of Moulds. And these Plates we are having in limited numbers in Foundry.
    Arond 30  Now  i want to create a resource for this..? How to consider this Plates for resource..? Whether M/C or what..?
    We are planning to carry out Proper scheduling and capacity planning for this resource.
    3. And May i know how to carry out Proper scheduling and capacity planning of resource.. So if capacity is not available ,i should be not able to go-head even with the releasing of order. How to carry out this. Is any customization required.
    4. Can we create combined resource  Ex: Crane  and laddle.
    I need to create these two resource has single resource ..is it possible..? may i know how the costs/ time to capture.?
    Please let me know.......THANK U IN ADVANCE.

    Dear
    Frist of all , I would appreacite if you can create seperate theard as you have multiple question .Refer : http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/HOME/RulesofEngagement
    However , please find the answers :
    1.. Can we create Resource (for process industry) similar to that as Work center which we create for (discreate industry)
    can i use the workcenters (CR01) instead of Resource(CRC1) to my master recipe. is there any impact by using workcenter instead of resource to master recipe..?
    Yes you can with Usage Type 009.But there may be diffienece in Standard Value Key and Formula Key  which will be used  for calcuating activity  and also Capacity Reuiqemenet .
    .2 In foundry we are using some Iron Plates for resting of Moulds. And these Plates we are having in limited numbers in Foundry.Arond 30 Now i want to create a resource for this..? How to consider this Plates for resource..? Whether M/C or what..? We are planning to carry out Proper scheduling and capacity planning for this resource.
    A resource is plance where certain operation will happend sequentially as per Master Recipe or Routing .If you have Plate where you carry our certain engineering optiaon rather utlising thoem at requorce to excute the opration , then you can very well create them as resource or work centre .This Resource /Work centre will be having optaion , material , scheuling , CRP etc .Do u think that u will doing the same for Plate ??
    If you are interested to carry out CRP/Scheduling the refer this theard : Capacity Leveling of Work Center
    4. Can we create combined resource Ex: Crane and laddle.I need to create these two resource has single resource ..is it possible..? may i know how the costs/ time to capture.?  :
    Yes you can  if both of them are intregal part of the resource /work centre as per as Setup , Machine , labour hrs is concern based on selection of Standard value Key and Formula Key .Wor centre or Reosurce cost captured through Actvity type ( KP26  with fixed or variable rate aginst costing elenemts) and Formula Key as assinged in the reosurce or work centre -Costing tab .

  • Main Work center ?

    Dear All,
    Can you please explain,
    How to create main work centre & work center.
    How can we differentiate the two after creation.
    What is the use of work center hierarchy.
    AR

    Hi Amit,
    About Work Center : Work Center is a person, a group of persons, a machine or a group of machines.
    Just understand the above lines. this is the basic defination of work center independent from any PP or PM work center.
    Now, if work center is created to perform Maintenance tasks with * work center category 0005 * those work centers are called maintenance work centers.
    ( Generally persons or group of persons are created as work center in PM)
    If work center is created to perform Production tasks with * work center category 0002 * those work centers are called PP work centers.
    (Generally Machines or group of machines are created as work centers in PP)
    In Plant maintenance, work centers can be defined in Hierarchy i.e. work center heirarchy is possible.
    take an example: you have created a work center with a group of people. you need to define who would be person responsible for this group & also you can define the persons heirarchy with the integration of HR.( e.g. Manager-Senior Engineer- Engineer-Associate Engineer- Senior Fitter- Fitter)
    The difference in one word is : Both are work centers but having different category & being used to perform different kind of tasks.
    For the trasaction : i would only like to say that while creating from PM nodes by t-code IR01, system give you default work center category 0005.
    I hope i am able to solve ur query for some extent.
    Thanks,
