I have a problem with work center planning, The client wants that if the WC capacity is overloaded for a particluar period say Dec 2008, then they may go for extra shift. Presently the WC is running 2 shifts from 6-10 PM. In case of overloading, they will go for night shift too (10-6AM). Accordingly they want to do manpower planning (HR is implemented). Pls note that this is for a particular period only and not a permanent.
What I understand is if u change the WC time then it is permanent change for the entire valid period. And the MRP run will distribute the capacity also as per the new time.
Can we make it valid for a limited period say in above case Dec only?

Yes it is possible by creating the new shift schedule for december and assign it to work center which will valid for DEC after that you can use normal shift schedule. It depend upon the validity setting you will maintain in work center for particular shift schedule.
Please try and come back.
