SNP - Capacity Leveling question

Hi All:

I am trying to do Capacity leveling in one resource and for one material.

After CIFing the material, resource, location and BOM (PDS), I entered some forecast for the specific material in DP and released it to SNP.

Then I ran the product heuristics and when I looked at the planning book 9ASNP94 and Data View SNP94 I noticed that the capacity utilization where more than 100 % in some periods.

Next I executed the 'Capacity leveling button'. and entered the following parameters and executed.

Combined Scheduling

100 % max util

Product priority


Heuristics Method

All Relevant Resources

In the Log checked all the three options

The log comes out as follows:

Green status on Resource and Parameters

Yellow status and 'Resource xxxx not used in any PPM/PDS'

Red status Resource utilization

I checked the PDS for the resource xxxx and i found it to be there.

When I go back to the Capacity view the leveling has not happened.

What am I doing wrong? Pl. help.

    Hi Narayanan,

    I think there should be any issue. I hope You selected the data view snp94(2), and loaded your resource in the planning book. then You executed the 'Capacity leveling button' in the planning Book, Right? Try without checking the 'consider alternative resource' check box, and dont give any priority in your capacity levelling profile.

      Yes. I did the capacity leveling the way you mentioned. I tried removing all priorities and unchecked alternate resources and tried. It did not work.
