Capacity consumption issue

Hello friends,

I have the following scenario:

II am using PP-PI model, Recipe for a Material A has fixed duration of 10 hrs for Capacity consumption.

When there is 1 process order created for 3 pc of A, system consumes 10 hrs of capacity. This works fine.

However if there are 3 process orders for matrial A each of 1 PC, system consumes 30 hrs of capacity. But actually it should consume only 10 hours of capacity.

Has anyone handled this using some special capacity formula or any other workaround.

Thanks in advance, Helpful answers will be rewarded.

Ram

    Hi,

    Please check for the time wheather you have given any inhouse production time which is indpendent of the lot size , normally if we give this time the system will not consider the lot size , it taked constant time per order , please check and let me know so that i can guide you further .

    Thanks and Regards,

    Mallikharjun.

      The Lot size that can be used in receipe is 1 only. It cannot be changed.

      Also I am already using Qty independent Fixed time in Receipe.

      Mallikharjun,

      My issue is when process order is created not for planned order. So qty independent inhouse production time does not help me.
