We assign the Standard available capacity at capacity header (capacity view)of Workcenter (CR02).

In the work centre - capacity header overview give the following data in std available capacity sub heading

start :08:00:00



Capacity utlization - 100

No of ind capacity = 1

Hence the capacity of 16 hrs is fixed for this WC. This your standard avilable capacity.

OP37 Maintain Available Capacity Version

You can use it as Normal available capacity or maxnium avilable capacity. The active version of available capacity is used as a basis for scheduling.

Pooled capacity is nothing but an available capacity that can be used by several work centers.

An example of a pooled capacity is a group of setup personnel who perform setups for many work centers.

Pooled capacity

A pooled capacity can be assigned to several work centers. It is created and edited independently of the work center. This is useful if, for instance, a group of employees works in several work centers.

Capacities can be entered and changed in work centers, but also independently. The system distinguishes between.

For working with CR11 ,I think first the pooled capacity should be included in SPRO.

Just check out in SPRO-Production -BAsic Data-Work center-Capacity Planning-Define Capacity categories

We assign this pooled capacity in the work centre creation in CR01,under capacity overview ,just below to the capacity category.

Hope clears to you.
