Hi,

Define distribution function

You specify what percentage of the capacity should be used after what percent of the operation's duration.

The distribution is used when the data is displayed by period, for instance in capacity evaluation and in the tabellar planning board of capacity levelling.

Go to SPRO~~Production..Basic Data~~Work Center~~Capacity Planning~~-Distribution.--

There are good documention with example please read you will come to know.

Basically distribution key is used to load you work center as per the clients requirement. With this you can load the work contineously or discrete.

This distribution key is the final stage.

Before that you should assign distribution function whether the distribution is contineous or discrete. and Distribution strategy.

If you want to load the work center first 20% then after some time again we can load the work center x % of the balance left out 80 %. Like that you can break the distribution of your load on the work center.

First make Distribution fn. Then assign this to Distribution strategy. Then finally assign this distribution strategy to the Distribution key.

Finally assign this distribution key to your work center in Capacity tab at machine capacity.
