Is the Recipe structure important for CM25 rescheduling (drag and drop)?


For Capacity Levelling in CM25 is the structure of the recipe important? Must the Phases be numbered to sort under their Operation in the C203 operation overview?

My current client has numbered the Operations as 0001 to 0008. And they have numbered their Phases with numbers above 0020, e.g. Phase 0020 to Phase 1110. They number their phases in the same order as they are performed in production so they can use the F-S relationship on all of the phases. Therefore in C203 overview the Phases are NOT sitting below the Operation they belong to.

We are getting the following error when trying to drag and drop (reschedule) operations in CM25:

Order 0184369453 operation 0010: No remaining av. cap. available in planning period Message no. CY744
Diagnosis The system could not find any remaining available capacity within the planning period.
Procedure You have the following options:

Increase the size of the planning period

Increase the available capacity BOW2HSD

Reschedule a capacity commitment which already exists for capacity BOW2HSD

Check whether the formulas in the work center for calculating duration or capacity requirements produce different results. For example, if the capacity requirements calculated are twice as large as the duration calculated then two capacities are required to execute the operation. In this case you should increase the available capacity or change the formulas.

A reduction of the available capacity can also arise if particular time intervals for dispatching were locked (fixed).

I’ve checked each option under the Procedure; none of these appears to apply so I think one of the causes is the non-standard structure of the Recipe.

Attached is a screen shot of the non standard recipe structure the client is using and what I consider to be a standard recipe structure.

Thank you!

I'm having trouble posting screen shots. I'll see if I can add them after I post this discussion.
