Prerequisites for Shift Planning

To implement Shift Planning, you need the following R/3 Time Management components:

A personnel master record must be created for each employee to be scheduled in a shift plan in this component. In addition, the Target Working Time infotype (0007) must also be maintained for each employee.

Substitutions, absences/attendances and availability are maintained in this component and transferred by the system to shift planning. Furthermore, changes to this time data made in shift planning are automatically sent back to time recording to be used in time evaluation.

Organizational structures are created and maintained in this component. An organizational structure comprises all of the existing organizational units which can be used as entry object types in shift planning. The entry object type defines the human resources required for shift planning by using the evaluation path of the entry profile.
