    Work schedule variants is used tomake your work schedule rule more flexible by specifying different rules for different daily work schedules.

    SAP configuration specialists can create work schedule variants using the IMG to handle the change in work schedules when a holiday is approaching. For example, in some workplaces, the day before a holiday is automatically considered a half day. Work schedule variants help you configure these types of rules and use SAP standard functionality. Many other variations of this example are possible:

    Creating Second Saturday as a holiday in 6 week working day calender

    the day before a holiday is only a half day if the holiday is on a Saturday, or the day before a holiday is a six-hour day instead of an eight-hour day.

    Daily Work schedule variants can also be used prior to public holidays, for example.

    A daily work schedule variants can be included automatically when the system generates the monthly work schedules. To do so, u define rules that determine the contitions to be met in order for the daily work schedule variant to be used on a specific day, such as on days preceding public holidays.

    You can configure these rules for any type of weekend... Not only for Friday...

    variant can be created from IMG-> Time management->work schedules->daily work schedules->Define rules for variant..

    Here, create the varient rule as per your weekend schedule

    Now u'll get two DWS with same names one with variant and other without

    Now dbl click on DWS without variant and give DWS selection rule as the rule for variant created earlier....

    Hope this gives clear information you are looking for..

    Best Regards,


    Best Regards,
