Break Duration and utilisation for resource in CTM time continuous planning


We are using Time continuous planning in CTM. In our scenario the resource definition has both break duration and utlisation needs to be defined less than 100%.

When we are trying to maintain this data in the resource CTM master data consistency check is showing inconsistency.

How can I define break duration and utilisation in resource and use it for time continuous planning in CTM.

Thanks & Regards,

    When you carryout time-continuous planning in CTM, following points to be considered.

    Rate of resource utilization and break duration( Utilization to be 100% and no break to be maintained.

    For single-activity resources, multi-activity resources, and calendar resources, or for the available time-continuous

    capacity of mixed resources, always enter a rate of resource utilization of 100 % and a break duration of 00:00:00.

    Otherwise, the SAP liveCache determines a different duration than CTM planning does for the corresponding

    activities. This may cause the system to fulfill the demand too late.
