fixed PPM/PDS resource consumption and fixed PPM/PDS material consumption

hi experts

while going through help.sap to find out the meaning of linear optimization i came across two phrases ""fixed PPM/PDS resource consumption and fixed PPM/PDS material consumption"" i have worked on SCC03 PPM and curto_simu PDS but i couldn't make out what these phrases means . my perception is that every shop floor operator is given a target to produce certain number of quantities per shift on a production line .Does these phrase means that ?? or it has some other connotation. ??

experts can you please provide clarity on those phrases.what does it actually mean ?

    Hi Rahul,

    Fixed PPM consumption is the fixed time required independent of quantity produced.

    Material consumption is the quantity produced in time given in variable consumption field in PPM/PDS.

    Time required to produced material consumption quantity = Fixed cons + variable cons

    regards
