Issue with Rotational Shifts

Dear Expert,

We have 3 shifts in plants for labors.

But 75% there is a fluctuation of their daily working timing.

Like employee planned working time is 08:00 to 04:00.

he will work this week in this timing.

But as per work load,he will work in other shift timing on the same week as well in the next weeks.some time in other plant as well.

Almost 1000 employee having such type of frequency..

Please advice, what will be the right approach for these employees.

    Hi Rohan Sharma,

    Shift Planning is the best approach

    Pre requisite: Daily work schedules should be ready.

    Shift details are as follows

    A: Morning shift (7 AM to 3 PM).

    B: Day Shift ( 3PM to 13 PM)

    C: Night Shift ( 13 PM to 7 AM)

    Configuration steps of shift planning:

    1.Create Profile in V_T77EP

    Create new profile by copying standard profile: SAP_000001 or SAP_000005 .

    2. Define substitution type

    IMG->Time management ->Shift Planning ->Integration->Define substitution type.

    Table: V_T556

    3. Specify Shift Group

    IMG->Time management ->Shift Planning ->Specify shift group.

    Table Name: V_T77DB

    Copy the standard group ie STANDARD and create a new shift group

    4.Assign shift group to an organizational Unit

    Use T code PP02 to assign new shift group to organizational units.

    5. Specify Factory Calendar

    In this step, we can specify which factory calendar is to be used for Shift Planning.

    IMG->Time management ->Shift Planning -> Specify Factory Calendar.

    6. Indicator for Shifts in Shift Plan (V_T77ER)

    7.Assign your PS. Grouping for substitution to Personnel area and Personnel subarea.

    Table :V_001P_E

    8. Set Defaults for Substitution Types

    HI Rohan,

    For this you have to define your fluctuate dws and do the shift planning configuration.

    Once employees daily work schedule has been changed then through shift planning you will do the required changes in the system.

    Shift planning is nothing but the procedure of Substitutions in the system.
