In this step, you define the following parameters:
Scheduling and calculation of capacity for the following
Parameters for detailed scheduling
Setting scheduling levels
Here, you determine the scheduling levels for which capacity
requirements are to be created and how the operation dates are
calculated in scheduling.
The selection of the scheduling parameters is made depending on
the following criteria:
Order group (planned order, production order, and so on)
Order type (LA, NB, and so on)
Production scheduler (allocated in material master record)
With the following parameters, you can control scheduling for
the scheduling levels:
The indicator, "Scheduling", determines how the operation dates
are calculated. If this indicator is selected, the operations are
planned and scheduled one after the other.
If this indicator is not selected,
the basic dates are used as production dates. No lead time
scheduling is carried out.
The indicator, "Create capacity requirements" determines
whether capacity requirements are created in scheduling. If the
scheduling indicator is also set, then the capacity requirements
are planned for the individual operations.
If the scheduling indicator is not
selected, the capacity requirements are planned for the duration of
the complete order.
The entry in the "Selection ID" determines according to which
criteria the system is to select the routing.
These parameters represent the basis for capacity planning.
If the scheduling indicator has been selected, scheduling is
carried out as follows:
Scheduling is carried out using the data in the routing, if a
valid routing exists and if you have not specified that the system
should use the data in the material master record for detailed
For rough scheduling and rate-based scheduling, the system
schedules backwards and no reduction is carried out.
For detailed scheduling, you can control the scheduling
procedure in detail using the function "Detailed scheduling
Detailed scheduling parameters
In detailed scheduling, scheduling is carried out depending on
the following criteria:
planned order type
In detailed scheduling you can control, for example,
backward or forward scheduling is to be carried out
the system carries out scheduling with or without
the system uses the date in the routing or in the material
master record for scheduling
Below, the individual parameters are described:
forward or backward scheduling is used
only capacity requirements are created
scheduling is to be carried out with the dails date
Start in past;
Controls the number of days that the
start date for scheduling can lie in the past. If the start date
exceeds the number of days determined here, the system
automatically starts the "today" scheduling.
Adjust planned dates;
Determines that the basic dates are
adjusted to the production dates when the production dates lie
outwith the basic dates
Determines whether the scheduling log
is displayed automatically after scheduling.
Earliest/latest picking date;
Determines whether the material is
staged for the earliest or the latest start date of the
Take breaks into account;
Determines that the exact time of a
break is to be taken into account. Thus, you can avoid that a date
calculated falls in the middle of a break.
Determines whether the floats before
and after production are reduced or with which maximum level
reduction takes place.
