    Dear,

    Yes you need to define work center as the the Labour and In the work center you will maintain labour category & define no of indv capacities and stand availabe capacity for the labour. Now create routing for each material with the same work center, give the corresponding labour time in the routing of that material for that work center.

    Accodingly in the capacity evaluation(CM01 etc) it will show as available capacity. And in capacity planning you can adjust your individual capacity.

    Regards,

    R.Brahmankar
