Pooled capacity, machine work center can have labour?

Dear All,

1) We have eg. a common pool of welders for Location A and Location B welding work centers. How do we setup the pooled capacity and assign to them?

2) We have eg. 2 CNC machining work centers (Vert and Horiz) but we have labour support to do machine setup, labour related jobs etc. If we need to perform labour capacity planning in this machine-based work center, is this done by maintaining a separate work center for this labour support and assigned to the same Cost Center? Or for machine-based work center, labour capacity planning is not required?

Thank you for contributing.

    Dear

    There is no differnce between pooled capacity and available caapcity .Only thing is you can utilised this capacity pool for various work centre level.

    To do that , Goto - SPRO-Production -BAsic Data-Work center-Capacity Planning-Define Capacity categories -Create Capacity Categoery for common pool of welders , Create Capacity in CR11 and assing them into Work cetre Capaicty tab-Pooled Capacity Catogeries and maintian No of indivuial caapcity in Capacity Header -Standard Available caapcity-Indivual Capacity ( Total Number of welders with working timing , utilisation ) .

    Quest2 : To address this issue , you can select Setup , Labour and Machine in Defalut tab of same Work centre with proper Standard Value Key .Now , as they are all part of the Production activity , so you can keep the same Cost Centre ( Production Cost Centre ) in the Work centre tab with Formula Key of Labour ,Machine and setup .Goto CR02-Default Tab and Costing tab .

    Hope this is clear

    regards
