  • 4 minutes to read

In a work center group calendar, the working days / hours, shifts, public holidays and absenteeism are specified, which determine the available gross capacity of the work center group (measured over time) according to its defined effectiveness and capacity values.

A fundamental step in calculating a specific work center calendar is setting up one or more general company calendars. In a company calendar, a standard work week is defined according to the start and end times of each work day and the schedule of each shift. In addition, the fixed public holidays for the entire year are defined in the company calendar.

The following describes how an alternative work center calendar is set up. The steps are similar for setting up work calendars.

Create working layers

  1. Choose the icon out, give up work shifts and then choose the related link.
  2. On a blank line, enter a number in the box code to determine the layer, e.g. B. 1.
  3. Enter in the field description a description of the layer, e.g. B. 1st layer.
  4. Optionally, fill out lines for a second or third shift.

Even if your work center groups do not work in different shifts, enter at least one shift code.

    Monday 07:00 15:00 1
    Tuesday 7:00 am 3:00 pm 1

    If you need a company calendar with two shifts, make an entry as follows:

    Monday 07:00 15:00 1
    Monday 15:00 23:00 2
    Tuesday 7:00 am 3:00 pm 1
    Tuesday 15:00 23:00 2

    All days of the week that are not defined in the company calendar, e.g. Such as Saturday and Sunday are simply considered non-working days and they have no available capacity in the work center calendar.
