Use this form to create setups for workload capacity for warehouses. When a workload capacity setup is created, you can associate it with a master plan to project the current and future workloads for one or more warehouses. The workload capacity setup is associated with a master plan in the Schedule workload form. For information about how to associate a workload capacity setup with a master plan, and how to view the information on a report, see Schedule workload.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
