Type

  • This field shows how the capacity reservation was made, and can contain one of the following:

  • Operations scheduled - Reservation made based on a production order with the status operations scheduled or an operations scheduled production order that will subsequently be started.

  • Job scheduled - Reservation made based on a production order with the status job scheduled or a job scheduled production order that will subsequently be started.

  • Marked for deletion - Used when scheduling has been stopped, in which case you can return to the starting point.

Reference type

The following reference types exist:

  • Production - Reservation generated based on a production order that has at least been operations scheduled.

  • Planned order - Reservation generated based on planned orders.

  • Project - Reservation generated based on a Projects (form).

Reference number

Number of the reference that created the reservation.

Start time

The starting time can be either the expected starting time of production orders with the status job scheduled or the starting time for available capacity. The value of reservations with the load type Operations scheduled or the reference type Planned order is 0. Therefore, for operations scheduled production orders and planned production orders that are not yet firm, you are only able to read the reservation in hours.

End time

The end time can be either the expected ending time of a production order with the status Job scheduled or the ending time for available capacity. The value of reservations with the load type Operations scheduled or the reference type Planned order is 0. Therefore, for operations scheduled production orders and planned production orders that are not yet firm, you are only able to read the reservation in hours. The result is that the time when production will start is not established.
