In PPDS, Detailed Scheduling Planning Board, if a resource has an unplanned downtime, is there a way to see the impact of this downtime on all the products produced in this resource and the impact that it will have on the pegged customer orders and stock transport orders?
Is there a way to reschedule the affected orders quickly without much manual intervention?

If a resource has planned or unplanned downtime, the details like starting period, end period, type of downtime can be mapped in "Downtime" Tab in the resource master /sapapo/res01. The existing orders in the resource can be deleted using /sapapo/rlcdel & /sapapo/delete_pp_order. Subsequently, PPDS planning run can be run only for those products affected/resource etc., By this run, the affected orders can be rescheduled without any manual intervention.
As Nitin indicated, if PM integration is there, this downtime tab will get updated automatically.
