Create and Change a System Calendar

This document explains how you create a system calendar and define days in the system calendar.

Outcome

You have created a system calendar for a division. (A system calendar must be created for each division.) Normally at least two calendar years from the current date should have been defined.

For MUC configuration, a system calendar must be defined for each of the divisions included in the configuration. This means that a calendar must be defined for the central (blank) division, even if the division is not used to process information.

You have changed one or several values in the following fields:

When a date is entered in M3, the system checks that the date has been defined in the system calendar.

The system calendar is stored in the CSYCAL file.

Before you start

Follow these steps to create a system calendar

  1. To create the system calendar, start 'System Calendar. Open' (CRS900).

  2. Select 'Settings' (F13) on the B panel.

  3. On the P panel, select 'Generate calendar' (F13).

    This displays 'System Calendar. Create Days' (CRS905/A).

  5. Specify values in the following fields on the E panel: 'General capacity,' 'Production day,' 'Goods receiving day,' 'Delivery day.'

  6. Select 'Start generation' (F13). The generation takes place online and not in a batch job.

  7. Repeat the procedure to define one more calendar year, since you should define at least two calendar years. Press F3.

Parameters to set

Program ID/Panel Field The field indicates …

(CRS900/E)

(CRS905/E)

General capacity

… the portion of a workday that can be load planned. This portion is entered as a percentage for each day.

Example A: A company normally works 8 hours on Mondays. If on a certain Monday it only works 4 hours, 50% should be entered as the general capacity percentage in (CRS900) for that Monday. If the employees in a certain work center only work 2 hours this particular Monday, 50% should be entered as the actual capacity percentage for the current combination and for Monday.

(CRS900/E)

(CRS905/E)

Production day … whether the date selected is flagged as a production day in the system calendar. You cannot create capacity for a work center on days that are not flagged as production days.
(CRS905/A) Bank day

… whether the actual day is a so-called bank day in the calendar.

The purchase ledger, for instance, uses the ledger in the financial management system.

(CRS905/A) Adjustment days payment day

… the payment day that is displayed as the default according to the day of the week on which the due date falls.

Example

If the real due date happens to be on a Sunday, you can as default set the payment date to be on the following Monday.

During automatic creation of a system period, the adjustment days are updated as follows:

  • Mon 1 payment default Tuesday
  • Tue 0 payment default same day
  • Wed 0 payment default same day
  • Thu 0 payment default same day
  • Fri 0 payment default same day
  • Sat 1 payment default Friday
  • Sun 2 payment default Tuesday

(CRS905/E)

Goods receiving day

... whether goods can be entered as received in M3 on a specific weekday.

Example: If goods receiving can take place on a Monday, enter 1 in the Monday field. If goods receiving cannot take place on a Saturday, enter 0 in the Saturday field.

(CRS900/E) (CRS905/E) Delivery day … whether deliveries can be entered in M3 on a specific weekday.
(CRS905/E) From year To year … the year from which and to which the calendar is to be created.
