 Distribution Key - Distributing Capacity Requirements Locate this document in the navigation structure

The chronological distribution of capacity requirements over the duration of an operation depends on the capacity category.

Example Example

The personnel capacity of a set-up person is required at the beginning of an operation and the machine operator perhaps every four hours to check up on progress, but the machine capacity is required constantly during the whole operation.

End of the example.

The distribution of capacity requirements in capacity planning is controlled by distribution keys

You can enter and edit the following distribution keys in the Capacity overview screen :

  • Distribution of the capacity requirement in the set-up, processing and teardown operation segments (for instance in production orders)

  • Distribution of the capacity requirement for internal processing (for instance in networks and maintenance orders).

Distribution keys are defined in Customizing for Work center s by choosing Define distribution key .
