shifting from Daily to Weekly bucket capacity for a Resource for CTM planning

Hi All,

At the moment CTM run generates a lot of Planned Orders on daily basis, which is based on daily bucket capacity of the Resource.

Is it possible to make the resource capacity to be considered as weekly and accordingly CTM run would generate Planned Orders based on Weekly availability of the Resource capacity ?

Regards,

The issue is: You had a SO for 6000 units

If daily capacity is 300 then yes CTM will create 20 planned orders each for 300 units.

If you define your capacity profile to be weekly you can get planned orders that span 7 days.

Are you ok with a SO for 1 unit to take 7 days also? 

Otherwise, you will pobably have to use BAdI /SAPAPO/CRESBUCKET

Hi Kenneth,

Not sure if I understand your comment

And by "Maintainence of Capacity Profile" do you mean maintainedof periods with 1 Bucket that we do in resourse ? Which is also suggested above by Expert DB.

I was just telling you what you discovered.

If you define resource in weekly buckets then a demand (so) of 1 unit will have a duration of 1 week.

The same results will occur if you change the PPM/PDS duration to 7 days also.


There is NO way to have capacity considered for a week.

To be honest, this is not logical.  You need to remember CTM is daily bucketed planning.

It plans/creates an order each day as it will create orders when needed.  

What you are thinking about is weekly lot sizes.  It has nothing to do with capacity.
