All,

We are doing forward scheduling in project system. Schedule date update on network properly but on the wbs dates not updated.

Ex.

1.We have WBS MT-2001,That starting date is 09.10.2018.

2.We have four activities,each activities we have duration like 2,4,2 and 2.

3.when we schedule network dates update on the network as starting date- 09.10.2018 and end date 19.10.2018.

4.In the WBS their no end dates update..

Kindly Suggest what should i do?

  • Hi Harshvardhan,

    Which system you are using ECC or S/4 HANA , if you are using HANA then you need to apply some notes on scheduling suggested by SAP . Lets know whether only forward schedule are not working or both forward & backward scheduling are not working.

    What are your WBS Scheduling Parameters, Network Scheduling Parameters, and Planning Methods from the Project Profile? They need to be in sync. And how are you performing scheduling? Please provide screen shots.

    Hi Harsha,

    Please try below things.

    1. Check scheduling parameters (OPU6) and choose specified plant and order type and set the scheduling type as Forward scheduling.

    2. Assign Network parameters to network profile ( OPUU).

    3.are you are using more than two levels of WBS in project ? Then check WBS scheduling parameters as well to update the dates at higher level wbs.
    path : SPRO-->PS-->Dates-->Scheduling-->Date Planning in WBS-->Define parameters for WBS scheduling
    Here choose Scheduling type as " Backwards "

    3. Assign network profile & WBS scheduling prof. to Project profile ( OPSA) and check Planning method.

    set it as bottom up planning ( as you want to update WBS dates from Activity dates).

    Regards,
