HR personnel availability as input to PM labor capacity planning

Good Day SAP Gurus!

I am looking at using HR's personnel availability as input to PM capacity planning.

I am planing to take this approach;

1.Reference HR in shift definition in IMG

2.Use the shift grouping in Work Ctr capacity header

3.Define Interval of Available Capacity using the shift defined

Appreciate your valuable inputs for the above steps to ensure it will work as well as the transactions/table to check personnel availability between HR and PM.

Also, I have read that I can use "Performing Work Center" in operations of capacity category "personnel" for the same purpose but I don't know how this works.

Anyone has better approach? Thanks a lot in advance!!

    without knowing the answer:

    i would first check the integration points of PErsonnel Time Management with other SAP Applications. As far as I remember is the "CATS" (Cross Application Time Services) function collecting data for cross company topics, like capacity leveling tasks.

      I forgot to update progress with this in quite a while. Anyway, I was able to meet my reqmnt by defining Shift Definition Grouping and pulling req'd HR Daily Work Schedule. Then I assign this Shift Definition Grouping to PM Work Center and select required shifts in maintaining "intervals of available capacity".
