Work center consists of master data related to routing of products. It contains data related to scheduling, capacity planning, and production costing.

All the manufacturing activities are performed in the work center. The work center can be used to monitor the following activities −

Scheduling − You can schedule the operations in Production order as per operating times in Routing and formulas mentioned in the work center.

Production Costing − You can also check the production costing as per formulas mentioned in the work center. The work center is also linked to the cost center and it defines the cost of operation in the production order.

Capacity Planning − You can find the current capacity and the future capacity requirements stored in the work center.
