Create a Labor Demand Template

Labor Demand Templates are the staffing requirements to produce a particular product.

1) Click on the Administration icon from the navigation menu, then select the Labor Demand Templates option in the Master Data section.

2) Press the Add New button.

3) Enter the Name and Short Name of the Labor Demand Template.

4) From the Demand Category drop-down, select the Demand Category that the Labor Demand Template belongs to.

5) From the Locations drop-down, select the Locations at which the Labor Demand Template can be produced.

12) Repeat the process of adding Jobs until all the needed Jobs are added to the Labor Demand Template.
