SAP PP - Capacity Planning

Capacity planning is done to balance the load at the work center. You can calculate the production capacity based on the requirement of the product as per the available capacity.

Capacity leveling takes place for detailed production planning purpose. This is done through a planning table used for detailed planning of capacity requirements over time in future.
