CM01 - Capacity

Hello all,

As you can see in the image in the first four weeks of the table I have enough capacity to produce.

The thing is that the percentage of occupation is very low...What can I do to increase the capacity and reduce the number of weeks of production?

I can produce everything in the first week, first and second week....that is not a problem.

I have tried some things but the production was always spread throug the 4 weeks.

Thank you

Jose

    Hello Jose,

    You can increase the Capacity Load by creating more Production/Process Order in a specific week, create more orders spread over week 1,2,3 and 4 then you can check the capacity load,this will definitely increase the load.

    Check and provide your feedback.

    • Hello Aditya,

      That is a solution for sure. But imagine that I only have that order.

      What can I do to improve the capacity percentage and by consequence reduce the number of weeks?

      For me it doesn`t make much sense to have a week occupied only with 7 or 8%...

      I would appreciate your feedback.

      Thank you.

      Regards,

      José

    Hello Jose,

    The Other way is you have to increase the Order Quantity , let's say initially your order quantity is 1000, increase the Order Quantity to 5000 or 10000, then you can observe that Capacity Utilized will be increased to 70 % or 80% depending on the Order Quantity.

    Hope this helps.

    • Hello Aditya,

      Thank you for your input.

      I know that the order quantity increase is going to put higher values in the capacity utilization.

      The thing is....I want to do the order in 1 week instead of 4 weeks and I have capacity for that and sap is spreading the order for the 4 weeks I want to do the order as fast as I can.

      Thank you.

      Regards,

      Jose

    Hello Mr. Jose,

    Could you please check the Distribution maintained in the Workcenter (Capacities Tab).

    May be that would be a reason for this behavior for the Capacities getting distributed.

    Best Regards
