This piece of configuration is actually something brand new to me, but it’s a cool little feature that I’m glad I know about now. The system condition or operating conditions is an extra flag that you assign to each operation. The idea behind this is you can determine whether the operation must be carried out in production or when the system is shut down, for example. You can set the flags for whatever makes sense to your organization, but this could be very handy if you use service order for field service, or plant maintenance. Now you know why to use it, let’s show you how to set it up.
Here’s where you find the SPRO configuration.
Now the screen is very simple. You define the System Condition and the description for it. The last column includes some capacity functionality as well. Here’s the basics. If you check the field, a capacity requirement in the work center is generated. This gives you the ability to flag operations to either be relevant or not for capacity. This little piece of configuration is actually a pretty cool little piece I’ve never used before.
