    Raj,

    Factory calendar doesn't do much of anything in APO unless you want it to.

    Factory calendars can be assigned to resources.  Resources in general can be used in both PP/DS and also in SNP.

    Factory calendars can be assigned to Time stream calendar (but this is not mandatory).  Time streams can be used in both PP/DS and also SNP.  Two common usages of timestreams are to assign Timestreams to locations, or to Transportation lane Means of Transport.  Such objects can thereafter be used in any APO application, such as PP/DS or SNP.

    In DP and SNP, it is possible (but not mandatory) to assign a Timestream to a storage bucket profile.  In this way all the data stored in the planning area may be based upon the data contained in the timestream.

      Raj,

      In general (with a few exceptions) transaction performed in ECC use the ECC configuration and ECC master data (including the ECC Factory calendars).  If you want more info about a specific conversion scenario, it is a simple matter to set up a test scenario in your sandbox or dev system.

    Hi Raj,

    A time stream is a table with generated time slots, which depends on the  factory calendar, working times and other possible factors.

    In ECC you have the factory calendars to control your business process. They can be CIF'ed to APO.

    APO is based on time series, so you need to create the Time Series (which are created considering the the Factory Calendars).

    Thanks and Regards,

    Mariano
