Understanding Capacity Consumption key figure

Dear Experts,

Good day!

I would like to ask for your help on how this Capacity Consumption key figure is being calculated in Capacity Leveling planning book/data view. As I understand, there's an assigned key figure function on this SAP standard key figure which calculates and computes for the values. However, as functional IT, I have limited familiarity on understanding the function via source codes.

Also, if possible, can you please help me understand the relation of this Capacity Consumption key figure and the variable, fixed duration master data at PPM? Appreciate your soonest feedback here.

    Hi AA,

    Your understanding about key figure function is correct, according to the assgined key figure function, capacity consumption is filled into this key figure.
    The capacity consumption is read directly from liveCache, so you may not be able to find very useful ABAP coding.
    Capacity consumption is calculated based on the PDS/PPM settings -- it uses fixed bucket consumption and variable bucket consumption. E.g. in PDS/PPM, to produce 1 piece, you need fixed bucket consumption 100s and variable bucket consumption 50s, if the order quantity in a bucket is 5 pieces, the capacity consumption will be 100 + 50*5 = 350s.
    Continuous consumption will not be used in SNP.

    BR, Ada

    Capacity Consumption key figure shows the total capacity of the production plant which is used i.e. for example a plant A has capacity of 700 units per bucket (i.e. day) and on a particular day based on requirements it created 350 planned orders. So, capacity consumption key - figure will show 300, Available capacity will be 700 and Resource capacity Level in % will be 350/700 i.e. 50%.

    In below screen, you can see receipts per day are as shown 5000, 22800 etc. - these are the planned orders created at Plant -

    Now if one looks at capacity planning view, you can see the capacity consumption key figure is populated with same values and % is what percentage of available capacity is used. Colors in red shows that capacity exceeds 100%

    Hope it helps.
