Production scheduling of planned down time


I'm looking for a way to allocate capacity on a work center for planned downtime or scheduled maintenance without using the Plant Maintenance module. We would also like to be able to record estimated time and the actual time the planned downtime or scheduled maintenance took and have that information available in SAP for reporting.

Thank you,

Michael Mooney

    Dear Michael,

    In the work Center, you have option to enter utilization factor which help you to schedule order. As you have 100% capacity 8 hours with 2 no of individuals (8x2=16) and you have capacity utilization factor 85%. After utilization factor maintenance, you found 13.6 hours as available capacity.

    When you schedule the order, System will automatically add 15% extra time (planned downtime or scheduled maintenance) with standard value (plan processing time added in the routing) by multiplying order quantity.

    Available Capacity and Order Scheduling Analysis:-

    Available Capacity As per Work Center Requirement Remaing Load Per Day Break Remaining No of Ind. Total Per Day Util Factor Net Capacity @ Day 8 0 8 2 16 85 13.60 1.92 11.68 14.09% Routing Master Data Scheduling In Production Order Work Center WC Description Std Value UnM Activity Quantity Time @ PC (+Utilizton) Total Time Start End ABC WC ABC Work Center 10.00 MIN Machine 10 12 MIN 115 MIN 1/15/15 7:00 1/15/15 8:55

    About the actual machine breakdown information, You have option to add custom screen (additional fields) in the order confirmation screen (CO11n/ COR6n) by User exit CONFPP07. This information can be stored in the AFRU (Confirmation) table and also easily extracted in R3 report (COOIS/ COOISPI) and can be developed custom report.

    Breakdown Table:-

    Reason Description Start Date Start Time End Date End Time Remarks Mechanical Failure Power Breakdown Electrical fault

    This is work around to capture the machine breakdown information without plant maintenance module. Please check if it help you.
