I have a model where I write a new order date of a product in the future in a table, depending on :
the abssimtime at the launch of the method + constant-time (depending on several parameters) => time of the new order
But, I now use a shift calendar in my model for my production line, and I would like to calculate the time of the new order considering the pauses and the unplanned periods defined by the shift calendar.
It's 20h30 on friday, I need to calculate a new order date in 2 hours. But the production line stops on 21h00, and start on monday on 8h00.
Actually, in my model, the new order date is 22h30 on friday. But, i need to consider the shift calendar and find a way to automatically calculate the good new order date, which is 9h30 on monday, skipping the production offline.
I don't know if i'm clear enough.
Thx in advance for your help !!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
The ShiftCalendar object offers a method called schedule and it does exactly what you describe. There is a small example with your installation and it is well documented in the Help-pages.
Thx a lot for your response.
I saw this method, but apparently I misunderstood the way to use it !
I thought it was only destined to modify a time parameter of a material flow object because I saw a <path> before the function. ^^
Have a nice day !
