Use a workday calendar for forecasting and planning material requirements, use shift information for job scheduling, and capacity analysis.
Workday exceptions identify deviations to the workday calendar. Shift exceptions identify deviations for a shift.
Attention: Shift exceptions take precedence over workday exceptions. (This is only relevant if a workday exception and a shift exception overlap.)
To assign workday exceptions to a workday calendar or calendar shift, either select them intuitively from the Calendar Dates (or Shift Calendar Dates) window, or apply them from an existing template, calendar, or shift.
Note: If you use Oracle Master Scheduling/MRP, choose the 4/4/5 Weekly Pattern or the 5/4/4 Weekly Pattern to report MRP information in weeks and months. Otherwise, if you choose the 13 Periods calendar or Calendar Months, you can only report MRP information in monthly buckets.
Note: Days on and off are calculated based on the start date and the day of the week. For example, if you want a standard five day workweek to start on 01-JAN, you must enter the start date as the Monday before 01-JAN (unless 01-JAN falls on a Monday).
