New Features
Using the Shop Calendar to Schedule Batches and Firm Planned Orders
Oracle Process Manufacturing (OPM) Process Execution releases prior to 11.5.10L did not makeany distinction between downtime and uptime. There was no direct linkage between a shopcalendar and a plant. Shop calendars were associated to plants on planning schedules used byOPM Material Requirements Planning (MRP) and Oracle Advanced Planning and Scheduling
(APS), but these associations were not necessarily unique across schedules. With this release, if you attempt to create or reschedule a batch or batch step, and the plant is associated to a shopcalendar, then the create or rescheduling operation considers the shop calendar if you select UseShop Calendar on the batch header. The shop calendar is used to calculate batch duration, and itwarns you if you try to schedule a batch to start during nonworking time. This feature is alsoavailable on the Production Scheduler.You can convert a firm planned order to a batch using the shop calendar. By selecting Use ShopCalendar, the firm planned order-to-batch conversion is done according to the shop calendar associated to the plant. If there is no shop calendar associated to the plant, then the conversion isscheduled contiguously.
Rescheduling the Batch and Batch Steps
The Use Shop Calendar option is used to reschedule batches and batch steps.
Date Changes for Batches and Firm Planned Orders (FPOs) with No Routing or Production Rules
If you enter dates for a batch or FPO that do not have a routing or a production rule, then it isassumed that the dates entered are accurate and the duration of the batch reflects any downtimethat occurs during production. The application does not consider the shop calendar to adjustbatch duration under these circumstances. However, dates entered are validated against theshop calendar to warn you of scheduling the start or completion during nonworking time.However, once the dates are accepted, the batch is created in a single, contiguous block of time.
Understanding Warning Conditions
Warnings are issued for the reasons specified:
If you attempt to schedule a batch that starts during nonworking time
If you enter a planned completion date during nonworking time
If the Contiguous indicator is set to Yes, and the batch spans nonworking hours
Shop Calendar Impact on Enforcing Step Dependencies
If Enforce Step Dependency is selected, then you can change either the Planned Start Date or the Planned Completion Date, but you cannot change both dates. When you change one of thesedates, then the other date field is disabled. This restriction is enforced because the applicationmust recalculate all dates based on a single date change. Business rules must maintainsynchrony with the underlying data already entered.If Enforce Step Dependency is not selected, then you are asked:Do you want the application to recalculate the other date based on current resourceusage?If you click No, then date gaps can occur.Date gaps occur when the span of the batch dates becomes larger than the calculated durationfor the batch. The batch start date and batch completion date are adjusted to meet the actualdates you enter on the Reschedule dialog box.
