SAP Bydesign All Versions

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Analysis work center
  2. Select Data Source view.
  3. Select Data Source Production Model Element Details, and select Preview.
  4. You can see Fixed Duration of Bill of Material (BoM) XXX (XXX stands for BoM ID) is PTXXHXXMXXS, while Variable Duration is PTYYHYYMYYS.
  5. Go to Planning and Production Master Data work center and Production Models view.
  6. Open Production Model ZZZ (ZZZ stands for Production Model ID).
  7. Click View All
  8. Navigate to Bill of Operations Tab and BoO structure sub tab
  9. You can see that Fixed and Variable Duration maintained is different from the ones in data source.



The fixed duration is coming from the 'Planning view of BoO' under the BOO structure of the Production model


  1. Open Production Model ZZZ
  2. Click View All
  3. Navigate to  Bill of operations Tab and Planning View of BoO sub tab

You can see that the variable and fixed duration maintained here is the same as the one shown in data source.

The fixed duration is again calculated based on multiple attributes like the BoO base quantity, send ahead quantity, variable durations, number of recourses, buffer time of the resources etc.

You can compare the data source details with the planning view of BoO details for the durations.
