The first step in setting up working time calendars is to create a working time template. Use the template to define the hours of operation, or the work periods in your production, for each day of the week.

When you set up the working time template, you can also indicate an efficiency level for each period that you define. Efficiency levels are reflected in the capacity of the operations resources and throughout the system.

  1. Click Organization administration > Common > Calendars > Working time templates. Click New to create a new line.

  2. On the Overview tab, in the Working time template field, enter an alphanumeric identifier of up to 10 characters.

  3. In the Name field, enter a descriptive name for the template.

  4. Select the tab that corresponds to the day of the week that you want to define working hours for, and click Add to create a new line.

  5. In the From field, enter the starting time for the day or the period.

  6. In the To field, enter the ending time for the day or the period. This can be defined as a day, a shift, or a temporary stop in operation, such as a lunch period.

  7. In the Efficiency field, enter the efficiency percentage.

  8. In the Property field, select the property for the selected day's working time template.

  9. Repeat steps 4 through 8 for each day of the week.
