A workday calendar defines the valid working days for a manufacturing organization and consists of repeating pattern of days on and days off and exceptions to that pattern. This allows you to, for example, designate a normal workday as a scheduled downtime day, or designate a holiday as a workday.
You can define one or more workday calendars and assign them to any number of organizations, and any number of organizations can share a calendar. You can specify the start and end dates, and the weekend schedule for each calendar.
Navigate to the Workday Calendar window.
1. Enter a name for the workday calendar.
4/4/5 Week Pattern: Two four-week periods followed by one five-week period.
5/4/4 Week Pattern: One five-week period followed by two four-week periods.
Calendar Months: Twelve periods per year based on calendar months.
13 Periods: Thirteen four-week periods per year.
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.
3. Enter a date range for the workday calendar. The default end date is four years from the start date.
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).
Note: Set profile option BOM: Week and Period Start Day, to determine the start date. This profile option works in conjunction with the Workday Calendar.
4. Continue creating the workday calendar by choosing one of the following buttons:
Workday Pattern: Set workdays on or off.
Shifts: Assign shifts to the workday calendar.
Dates: Review your work so far and its effect on the workday calendar. Do this before you build or rebuild the workday calendar you are now creating. (You can only do this after you have defined a workday pattern.)
Once you have created a workday pattern, assigned shifts, assigned workday and shift exceptions, and reviewed your work, you must build the calendar and assign it to an organization.
5. Save your work.
