CM01/CM21 - Capacity Leveling Customization

Those who are still using R/3 for capacity leveling...

1. Have you had complaints from your users that these R/3 transaction aren't user-friendly at all?

2. Have they requested these to be customized?

3. Have you customized these transactions? To what extent?

The feel, look and config of these capacity transactions is very prehistoric (even before 4.0b)... nothing much has changed... then APO came in... the more leftout these transactions has become... users have resorted back to spreadsheets.. not good!

So folks who've been stuck in R/3 land and cannot stand these standard transactions, what have you done??? I'm interested to know what you did, what technologies (i.e. web dynpro) you've used and how your users embraced it.

    The CM21/CM25 transactions are very commonly used - once you configure the profile (as needed), then CM25 can be used in tabular or grapical forms. Both options have decent graphics - and work very well and users like it in our global implementation. Thanks

    I agree with you Cap. Levlling is not frinedly in R/3 or ECC.

    However we use Capacity levelling for our collective order scheduling as it helps schedule parent & child orders as needed by planner.

    For this I use cutomised profile ZSAPPSG001 copy of SAP standard SAPSFCG001 - SFC: View work center/capacity (2 graf.).The agreed capacity overall profile is then called in your prod. schduling profile tcode : OPKP.

    You can customize user required Capacity levelling Overall profile in tcode : OPD0

    From there you can select any subprofile that meets user needs or further customize subprofiles as needed.

    Selection profile SAPSFCS009 SFC: View Center -> Capacity (2 graf.) ( tcode : OPD1)

    Control profile SAP___C002 Gen: Planning table ( tcode : OPDE)

    Time profile SAPSFCZ002 SFC: graph. medium-term (3 months) ( tcode : OPD2)

    Evaluation profile SAP___A001 Gen: Standard evaluation profile ( tcode : OPD3)

    Strategy prof. SAP___T001 Finite scheduling forw./all functs.activ ( tcode : OPDB)

    Period profile SAP___P002 Gen: Daily period split ( tcode : OPD4)

    Planning tab.profile ZSAPPSL001 SFC: only main caps. (2 graf.) ( tcode : OPG0)

    List profile SAPSFCI001 SFC: Production planning ( tcode : OPDH)

    As you can see I just customised a few changes in my Planning tab.profile based on user requirement.

    I am sure this gives you good insight to research this further & give your users some customised screen.

    Thanks for the quick response... I'm looking for more of a custom CM01/CM21 screen... a more user-friendly version of these 2 transactions. I agree that you can add fields or customize the profiles (graphical or tabular).
