Hi Experts

I have got some doubts about planning calendar. If the  factory calendar is set  with Saturday and sunday as holidays ,

is the same setting could be applicable to Planning calendar ? If so if I want to violate this , how to achieve this?

    Second question is if I want to set first three days of each week as working days in a planning calendar , how to define calculation rule

to achieve this?

Thanks in Advance for clearing above doubts

    Hello Srinivasrao,

    Planning calendar depend on the factory calendar. Whenever changes in  factory calendar, planning calendar need to be updated.

    • Again in planning calendar have some special future '

    See below picture

    Ex. Period fall on day which holiday in that case system provide the above option:  consider the following day, Previous day, and in "No new Period day" system not create any period and "DO not Displace" ( consider a same day) in planning calendar period.

    Select one of the option as per your requirement

    • If you want to calculate the first three day as working day in planning calendar

    Create the calculation rule like as below

    Select the Rule : Weeks (week Days)

    Enter : 1, 2,3 ( In this case system consider the every week Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday)

    you can select any day with in week

    But on particular day period fall on holiday system then system create new period with above logic

    Please check and confirm the same

    Thanks  &  Regards

    Hi Srinivas

    No, the planning calendar will not override a holiday defined on the plant factory calendar. MRP will always consider the working days according to the plant factory calendar and there is no alternative to change this.

    Regarding the second question, just define a weekly period and set weekdays 1,2 and 3 on the calculation rule.

    See the following document for details.
