This business function enables customers using multiple counter plans for their planned maintenance to use shift factors for more accurate scheduling and better use of assets. Shift factors are the percentage in the maintenance strategy that specifies the degree to which a confirmation date that deviates from the planned date must be taken into account when scheduling subsequent maintenance plan dates.
