Selected changes in Customizing for capacity leveling

Description

Changes to IMG structure

New selection options in the decision table for the object representation selection

In the decision table for the

object representation under Define graphical object type there are the following new features:

Enter a positive or negative value as a comparison value that the system interprets as a number of days and adds to today's date. This date is the actual comparison value.
In the following examples of logical links with a date field, the expressions in brackets are the entries with which the logical statements are defined in the object representation selection:
This statement is true if the date in the date field is at least 10 days in the past.
This statement is true if the date in the date field is at the earliest 10 days in the future.
In the following examples the content of the fields called X is the character sequence ABCD. The following are valid:
The expressions in brackets are the entries with which the logical expressions in the object representation selection are defined.
You can find more information on comparison operators in the documentation BC-ABAP/4 User manual.
As a new field for comparisons there is the five-character field ERR_MASK in the structure KBED. Various applications in capacity leveling write a 1 in this field if an error arises, for example if missing parts are found in the ATP check or setup transitions that are not permitted. The place where a 1 is written depends on the function:
Scheduling 1. place
ATP check 2. place
Taking setup time into account 3. place
General selection functions 4. place
Other 5. place
You can evaluate the field ERR_MASK in the object representation selection with the new operator CP (see above)
In the SAP standard the field ERR_MASK is evaluated in order to select the objects affected in the case of error. Colors are defined for selection. You can also select them using the check report online. To find more information read the release note Check report for capacity leveling.
