capacity planning date shifting issue


Hi All Experts,

I am facing a issue related to capacity requirement planning  issue related to date shifting  to next day. Below is the explanation.

1. In workcenter capacity requirement formula (SAP008) is maintained along with work center calender, Scheduling tab of workcenter other formula (SAP004) & Distribution key(SAP050) also maintained.

No of individual capacity=7, operating time= 6hrs , day start time=8.00am ,end time =16.30pm with 1hrs break

2. In Network , the activity is considering the operation time in scheduling, since in network scheduling parameter we have maintained to consider operating time (Adjust date field) i.e

1. earliest start date 22.12.2014, start time=8.00am, earliest end date 22.12.24 end time=16.30pm

2.  latest start date 22.12.2014, start time=8.00am, latest end date 22.12.24 end time=16.30pm

Now when in internal activity work field I had given 4 hrs & also relavent work centre, and then go to personal assignment tab give person name,

date (22.12.2014)  and time=8.00am , work= 4hrs, duration=1 day.

Now when I schedule and save the project and check in cn50 (capacity evaluation  report) the earliest & latest finish date moves to 23.12.2014.

Note: project  & netwotk activity is in created status ( It doesnt matter much).

I did one test by putting contraint on network activity i.e must finish on 22.12.2014, now what happened the earliest finish time & latest finish time showed as 24:00:00 from intial 16:30:00 because of constraint. Now checked in cn50 report, the earliest & latest finish date shows 22.12.2014.(which is correct)

Also one more thing when I gave 3hrs of work in work field against the person in person assignment tab the duration is calculated automatically as 0.5hrs and in the cn50 report shows correct finish date i.e 22.12.2014.

when I enter 4hrs of work in work field & duration 1 day against the person in person assignment tab & check cn50 report the earliest & latest finish date moves to 23.12.2014.

Please experts your advice & thoughts are valuable.

Thanks & Regards,
