How can I schedule multiple machines parallel

I need to schedule large volume orders - however, our routings are "standard" and only allows one work center to do a particular work step. However, I will be using multiple work centers. My goal would be to have the work centers have time associated on them for capacity requirements and not have extended lead time, as I know that the parts are going to run in parallel at the same time.

    Hello

    You mean that a work center can process several orders at the same time? If this is the case, there is an interesting DIMP functionality, which is active by default in S/4 HANA, called order combination. With this functionality several orders can share an operation. See the link below for more details:

    If you mean that several operations of the same order can run in parallel, then you can define an overlapping between the operations or even define parallell sequences.

    regards,
