This means that whether you produce 1 unit or 100 units of the output product the capacity consumption will be fixed. The available capacity will be reduced by the fixed value in the period in which the first variable capacity consumption occurs. Fixed capacity consumption is considered to be a constraint during optimization, not preprocessing.
Users can now optimize planning results using the newly introduced production groups. Production groups include products that share attributes, such as color or shape, which cause fixed capacity consumption or fixed costs.
Users can now create analytics stories for order-based planning areas with flexible master data and display external key figures in their charts and tables.
