Putting a production order on hold, removing capacity requirement


I have a need to temporarily remove capacity requirements from production order because there is situation on the shop floor that caused the particular order unable to move ahead.

Capacity requirement shall be re-instated when the order specific production issue is cleared.

Is there a way to update a production order to release capacity requirement yet allowing changes to production order routing? I tried "LOCK" production orders but that will not allow me to change anything in the order.

Can I set up a user status + user exit to remove the capacity requirement? If so, how to?

Thanks all in advance!!!

At the "Control" tab of the production order header, there is a calculate capacity requirements indicator. If you uncheck this indicator and run scheduling again, system will not generate capacity requirements for the order. You can use this indicator to temporarily discard the production order from capacity planning.
