i have to plan a plant with many machines and few equipments. We can make our items on many machine and a specific item use a specific equipment.
The problem is that now we aren't able to know in the system if the equipment is avaiable or is occupied on one of the machines. This influence also our capacity view in CM01 because we don't know if the usage of the work center is real; This because if the equipment isn't avaiable the machine can't work and we are overload.
Do we need to implement and set the situation with ETM transaction? or we can manage the equipment like a work center? Someone with a similar production can explain how work?
thanks for any suggestion!!
