without cleaning, maintenance and other plannable downtimes.
Total net capacity is (planned capacity in hours/day) * (number mashines / persons) * ( %-value as per factory calendar)
Planned capacity can be influenced by
- Shift schedule of the resource
- Shift schedule of the resource group
- Shift calendar
Planned capacity cannot exceed 24 hrs/day. If in shift schedule for resources or resource calendar a start / end time is defined, the planned capacity is at most the period between start and end time.
Example: Start 8:00, End 14:00 Maximum time for scheduling: 6 hours.
The calculated Start is at 12 o´clock - (planned capacity in hours : 2)
The calculated End is 12 o´clock + (planned capacity in hours : 2)
Backward scheduling considers only the end date
Forward scheduling considers only the start date
A Resource has a daily capacity of 8 hours.
Shift Start = 12 - 4 = 8 o'clock
Shift End = 12 + 4 = 16 o'clock
So the calculated end is the shift end of the resource at backwards scheduling, which is 16 o'clock in this example instead of 17 o'clock.
If a start / end date is defined in the Shift definition, these have a higher priority, but do not affect planned capacity.
Note for available planned capacity for an operation:
The max. number of hours between start- and calculated end are available for an operation.
e.g. 15 hours day, shift start = 8 o'clock, shift end = 16 o'clock
Means, max. 8 hours are available
Exception: Amount of the machines / persons is higher than 0 and defined in the operation, so that all resources can be accessed.

The setting affects the definition of the unit value "Days"
External operation times are often entered per day. To do so, the planned capacity and the number machines / persons should receive the value 1. 1 equals 24hours in this case. For more information: See External operation – lead time
