Settings in Customizing

You find the following Customizing activities in Customizing for Shop Floor Control in the   Operations   Scheduling   section, unless otherwise stated.  

  • Scheduling parameters for production orders

The scheduling parameters are defined per order type, plant and production scheduler (from the material master). They cover many control parameters that are described in the corresponding places in the documentation (see Scheduling Parameters ).

  • Scheduling type

The scheduling type determines which dates must be entered during scheduling and which dates are determined by the system (see Scheduling Type ).

  • Formula definition/formula parameter

To calculate the duration of individual operation segments (setup, process, teardown), the formula parameters and formulas are used (see Calculation of the Operation Segments ). They are assigned to the work center.

  • Standard value key

The standard value key determines the meaning of the individual standard values (see Calculation of the Operation Segments ). It is assigned to the work center.

  • Performance efficiency rate key

Performance efficiency rates are assigned to the individual standard values in the work center. They specify the relationship between the specified target and actual time.

  • Scheduling margin key

You define the order float in the scheduling margin key, (see Scheduling at Order Level ). The scheduling margin key is copied from the material master.

  • Move time matrix (location groups)

If the move time defined in the routing is insufficient then the move time can be defined in a move time matrix (see Date Determination at Operation Level ).

  • Reduction strategy

The reduction strategy is assigned to the individual operations in the routing. If an order cannot be executed within the specified order dates, the system tries to shorten the lead time of an order using the entries from the reduction strategy (see Reduction Measures and Reduction via the Critical Path ).

  • Shift sequence

You can carry out a very detailed definition of the operating time of a work center using a shift sequence. You define the shift sequence in Customizing for Shop Floor Control by choosing   Operations   Capacity Planning   Define Shift Sequence   .

  • Calendar

The calendar defines the workdays and non-working days. It is assigned to the capacities in the work center. You maintain the calendar in Customizing by choosing   General Settings   Maintain Calendar   .  

  • Order type-dependent parameters

You can enter a reduction strategy here. When an order is created, this reduction strategy is assigned to all operations that are not assigned a reduction strategy in the routing.

You maintain the order type-dependent parameters in Customizing for Shop Floor Control by choosing   Master Data   Order   Order-Type Dependent Parameters   .  

  • Control key for operations

In the control key you can define whether and how each operation is scheduled and whether capacity requirements are to be generated (see Control Key for Operations ). The control key is assigned to the individual operations in the routing.

You maintain the control key for operations in Customizing for Shop Floor Control , by choosing   Master Data   Routing Data   Define Control Key.  

Settings in Master Data

The settings described here are transferred to the production order and, as a rule, can still be changed there.

  • Work center

  • Standard and minimum queue time

  • Formulas for calculating individual time segments for the execution time (setup, processing, teardown).

  • Capacity definition (see Determination of the Operating Time )

  • Capacity that is relevant to scheduling

  • Number of individual capacities

  • Routing

If wait times are defined in the routing and in the work center, then the definition in the routing takes precedence.

  • Material master

  • Bill of material

The determination of the requirements dates for directly produced components in collective orders can be influenced in the bill of material:

  • Lead-time offset

  • Operation-related lead-time offset
