Work Center Shift Definition

Hi PP Expert,

I have requirement for this shift :

Shift 1 : 08.00 to 17.00

Shift 2 : 20.00 to 04.00 next day

How do you define it in SAP ?

Should i create that like this ?

Shift 1 : 00.00 to 04.00

Shift 2 : 08.00 to 17.00

Shift 3 : 20.00 to 24.00

Is it normally maintain like that or is there any way to create in two shift definition?

    Dear Arman,

    During shift definition generally the previous shift end time will be taken as the next shift start time,but in your case the first shift

    starts at 08:00 and ends at 17:00.

    The second shift is starting at 20:00(Night 8'o clock) and ending at 04:00 in the morning.How do you treat the time between 17:00

    to 20:00?

    Check out in this way,In OP4A,create the grouping logic->shift defiition->

    S1 first shift 01.08.2011 31.12.9999 08:00:00 17:00:00 9.00

    S2 second shift 01.08.2011 31.12.9999 20:00:00 04:00:00 8.00

    Then under Shift Sequence,

    2S 1 2 shift sequence S1 S1 S1 S1 S1 S1

    2S 2 S2 S2 S2 S2 S2 S2

    Assign this in the work center capacity header,by definish the shift start as 08:00:00 and end time as 04:00:00 by mentioning the

    duration of break,then in the grouping mention the respective shift grouping,in the intervals and shifts mention the start date and

    end date and select the shift sequence.

    Now in CM01 accordingly you will be able to see the available capacity,assuming you have not defined any break timings either in

    the shift sequence or else in the capacity header in the work center.

    Check and revert back with your queries.

    It can be maintain in work center capacity tab. Check transaction CR02 and go In capacity tab and then click on intervals and Shifts. click on insert interval and maintain validity period and further entries.
