Use work center to calculate duration for internal Activities in a project
Below is an internal Activity, I input a work center ‘10009’ for it, the needing work is 1,000 hours, and the number of capacity is 2. When we press ‘Enter’ button, the SAP system will calculate the duration of the internal Activity for us.
We can see the calculation result is 50 days in the red box on the picture below.
Besides, we can also see the Gantt chart of the internal activity, which is more intuitive than number.
If you want to know how SAP calculate the duration time for us, you have to see the picture below, which is the main interface of the work center, we can see the ‘Capcity category’ field in the ‘Capcties’ tab, and double-click on the field.
After the double-clicking, we will see the interface below, we can see the operating time is 10 hours per capacity. Here is the process that the system calculate the duration time for us: 1000 hours divided (10 hours multiply by 2), so the result is 50 days.
