Capacity organization

A capacity organization represents an organization level in the organization hierarchy at which all capacity information is consolidated.

A capacity organization provides any of the following functions:

  • Defines service slots for order promising functions.
  • Capacity separation. All organizations that are part of the same capacity organization have visibility for the capacity of all resources that are part of this capacity organization. This allows a better visibility across resources but can also create data security and other issues. A capacity organization creates a separate silo of capacity definition in the system. This silo cannot be accessed by organizations that are part of a different silo and thus provide a complete segmentation of capacity.
