Factory Calender and Planning Calenderr


i want to plan my production for 7days a week. and want to plan for Raw materials also 7 days a week.

but here my requirement is that i dont want to receive raw materials on weekends. i mean no one will be in Factory to receive raw materials on Weekends.

If i maintain Planning Calender for 7 days and assign to Raw materials in MRP View 2 and Factory Calender for 5 days can i achieve this requirement?

for in house production i have to plan for 7 days a week. (Scheduling and Capacity Calculation)

i dont want to receive rawmaterils in weekends.

Please suggest.

Based on your business requirement , you should have the following set up :

1.One Factory Calender with Work Days Monday-to-Friday Let say FC1 .This will be used on all the organisational level starting from Materials Planning to Sales .But will not be assinge to Capacity Requirement Planning Purpose or Any Production Activity in Work Centre .

2.You should have one more Factory Calander with work Days Monday to Monday ( 7 days week ) with some special rule like Plan Shutdown Days , Breakdown Maintainnece etc and this should be assinged to all the work centres -CR02-Capacity Tab -Capacity Header -Factory Calader ID -Let say it is FC2.

You need to ceate Calander in OP03/SCAL .It does nto have any transport and it will be a Cleinet level changes which requires proper approval .Please rememeber , you need to assing only FC1 to Plant assingement in OP03 where as FC2 will be asisnged only in Work Centre level .

Steps : Goto -OP03

1.Identify all those Public Holidays frist with Fixed or moveable as per business requirement

2.Goto Holiday Calander -Hit the pencil -Hit Create option -Enter ID , Description , Valid To/From Year ( shd be 20 yrs differnce )

Add all those holidays as per Public holidays as applicable in your business with proper valididty and finally SAVE

3.Goto Factory Calander -Hit the pencil -Hit Create option -Enter ID , Description , Valid To/From Year ( shd be 20 yrs differnce )

Asisng Hioliday Calander . In case of FC2-Work centre Calander , here you can hit the Special Rules .Include Special Activity like Plan Shut down of factory with Validity etc and SAVE .

4.Come back to OP03 main screen -Assing the factory Calender in plant .

5.Goto -CR02-Capacity -Capacity Header -Available Capacity Header -Factory Calander-Assing FC2

I do not think you should have planning calander seperately if you do not have any specific reason .

Hope it helps
