Activity in Work Center

Dear All,

My question it's regarding at activity in work centers.

I defined "setup time" like first activity, and I established an value for the plan price, for the activity type.

Normally, this setup activity it's applicable just for first piece and for the rest no!

But now, if I intend to produse 100 objects, this setup time it's multiply by the number of pieces.

Can somebody to say me, how can I configure thus the setup time be applicable just for one piece.

Thank you, very much!

You can use the formula SAP005 = setup x operation split for Capacities & SAP001 = Setup for scheduling. In this case it will not consider the operation quantities & will calculate setup irresepective of operational quantity.

Actually the formula which you are defining at the costing view is giving the error.

Create the varable with first st value and create a formuls with only the variable and assign it into the costing field of work center.Then the system will take the value of the activity time only once.

First define a parameter in transaction OP7B . Change the standard value key and give the parameter in OP19.Define a formula in transaction OP21.

Hope it will help you.

Hi ,

In such cases you can use Parameter SAPC04 - Fixed duration for that specific Operation and work center.

Just maintain the required time to complete work for that one piece only.

so set up time is constant for all operation qty,

just u create new set up time formula,copy the sap002 ,in that delete the operation qty and base qty ,

so ur formual will be only mchine time,so irespective order qty ,mahicne will be same
