Order Coloring on DS Planning Board

Hi Experts,

Business: Manufacturing.

Scope: Juice Manufacturing.

Volume: 18 Flavors

SKU's: 62 individual SKU's based on packing/Overall about 18 Juice Groups.

My client manufactures about 62 SKU's over 48 hours of execution/production time. Every Flavor forms a part of individual Juice Group which is defined in the system. On an average the volumes per SKU is about 40,000 - 50,000 Liters, which translates into an average run time of about 3 - 4 hours per SKU. We have 3 alternate resources for every SKU on an average in off peak season.

I have used PURPLE color for one of our in house produced SKU, by using the Resource chart configurations. However this does not reflect on order coloring on the Resource Chart, in-turn reflects the changes to the Product Chart. This is something which is not suitable, since the planner usually uses the Resource Chart to perform interactive scheduling of order's on various resources.

Hence dear experts kindly suggest if there is anything which i might be missing while configuring or is there any other method to perform the required changes.

Thanks & regards,

    Hello NH,

    Just to clarify, the resource chart can display Operations, Activities etc. for each order. In order to have separate colors for individual SKU's, in the Planning Board Profile you need to look at the Decision Table for graphical objects for the Resource Chart.

    Now here you have to define the sequence in which the system reads each operation through the decision group, decision etc. and what graphical object is assigned.

    Now you need to create a Decision Group-Decision combination for table Product, field selection AT104 or AT105 ( free attributes from Location-Product) and if this condition is true, you assign a graphical object which has your desired color.

    If you have already done this, please make sure that you changed the colors for Process time as well under Graphical elements for your graphical objects.

      Hi AK,

      I was able to execute Operational Color Codes for different SKU's, as mentioned earlier please do find the link below within which there is a link provided by Marius Talos, this will provide the steps needed to replicate the changes.


      Thanks AK & Thank you Marius.

      Thanks & regards,
