set up time dependant and independant of order qty
On the material master work scheduling screen we have setup time and a few other times which are dependadnt on order qty and then we have next to an order independant inhouse prod time. Could someone tell me when would the order independant and when would the sum total of the order dependat times are taken into account. The SAP help says it pretty briefly that when the setup time is very large compared to the actual processing time then the order independant times are taken into account wheras when the setup time is very small compared to the actual processing time then the order qty dependant times are taken into account. Could some one give some industry example as to when either is used.

When you do the basic date scheduling at that time system use lot size independent time but if schedule the material master then system use lot size dependent timing from work scheduling view. Which are as per your routing time including set-up. So order get schedule accordingly.
But if you use lead time scheduling then system always take time from routing which including your set up timing.
Hope clear to you.
