Hi,

You can define shift definitions and shift sequences for all your work centers in Customizing the work center under Define shift sequence. This is useful for maintaining available capacities.

Shift definition

In a shift definition you define the shift start, shift end, break times and the validity period.

Shift sequence

You define how shifts follow another on a daily basis for the duration of a cycle in a shift sequence. You can use shift definitions.

In T. Code OP4A you can define shift sequence and shift definitions.

Hope it helps you.

Do the following setting in spro for Shift:

Define Shift sequence in SPRO(Production>>> basic Data>>>work center>>>capacity planning>>>Availabale Capacity>>>define shift sequence)

In this step you define the following:

Grouping

Using the grouping you can create shift sequences and shift definitions for special areas (for example, different plants or different areas of a plant) and when maintaining the available capacity choose from between work centers.

Work break schedule

Here you define parameters that describe the individual work break schedules in more detail, as for example:

Start

Finish

Break times

Shift definition

Here you define the parameters common to several work centers that describe the individual shifts in more detail, for example:

Start

Finish

Break times

Validity period of a shift

In Logistics (LO) you can reference daily work schedules from the personnel system (HR). If you reference a daily work schedule in LO from HR and this is changed in HR then this change has a direct effect on changes in LO.

Shift sequences

You can assign the shift sequence of a capacity category as the available capacity at the work center.

You define a sequence of shifts per weekday. The shift sequence represents a collection of shift definitions.

In capacity planning the system uses the predefined values from the shift definition to determine the available capacity of a work center.

The system calculates the following values:

the capacity

the actual operating time for the capacity

Standard settings

The SAP standard package contains settings for various shift sequences.

Activities

You should define the following:

1. groupings

2. shift sequences

3. shift definitions

4. work break schedules

Assign this in work center capacity tap, under intervals and shifts.
