Capacity Leveling of Work Center

Hi all,

I have a problem with Capacity of Work center (WC).

I have a Internal Activity, and i assigned a WC for this Internal Activity. WC's capacity is 100H/day for 1 number of element.

Work of this WC is 250H, duration 5 days, number of element 1. Default capacity of this WC is distributed by Distribution Key define in Activity. . And they are divided equally between factory days in 5 day. That is capacity requirement is 50H/Day

So, i want to edit this WC's capacity following value:

Day 1: 100H/day

Day 2: 50H/day

day 3: 0H/day

day 4: 0H/day

day 5: 100H/day

How can i do it?? I try to use Dispatch Manually but i cant solve this problem. 😔

Please help me for this case.

Thank all.

    Dear ,

    I have couple of points for you .Do u think that any machine can have Capacity Utlisation more than 100% ?? In your case it is 250% .May be technically you can enter this utilisation for time managemnet , but practically it may not be possible.

    As you said WC's capacity is 100H/day for 1 number of element. : I think Work Centre has Operating hours and Avaialble capacity .

    Operating hrs depends on your Break Time , Work Centre Start Time , Work Centre End Time , Shift Pattern (Grouping key ) .

    Operating hrs =((End Time -Start Time ) -Break Time

    If you are working exclusively 8 hrs per day with mentioned Capacity utilisation , then you should have available capacity of 20 hrs (82.501) .So it cant not be 50hrs ( 202.51) -may be three shift total 20 hrs ) .Just check this one .

    You should revisit the set up Distibution Key based on Factory Days and carry out same testing in sandbox.

    Hope this will address the issue

      Pl remove distribution key..system will do sheduling as per avaialbilty, which you can adjust in planning table. In case if you need get the distribution as per your requirement, then you need to play with function S10 to S50)

      You create on your own function with the way you want and get the result

      Like distribution first week 40%, 2nd week 20, 3rd week 40%.
