Call Horizon in Days

 

Up to now, you were only able to define a percentage for the call horizon. This function enables you to define the call horizon in days and working days as well. The system then generates maintenance call objects a specific number of days/working days before the planned date. If you define the call horizon in working days, the system bases scheduling on the assigned factory calendar and takes weekends, holidays, and your company's vacation shutdown into account. You can define the call horizon in maintenance strategies, strategy plans, and single cycle plans. If you define or change the call horizon in a maintenance strategy, the value you specify is then proposed in all maintenance plans created thereafter.
