ON the Asset Management Setup the user can turn on the Advanced Planning functionality.
Switching on will process the update of all existing resource lines on Work Orders and Plans.
When Advanced Planning is on - new functions are available:
On given example - if the work order will be planned on 10th day of the month:
Ending Date can be always changed but it can not be lower than Starting Date.
Changing Starting Date the Days of Operation from the plan will be taken into consideration, so the Ending Date will be applied automatically.
Starting Date can be change only when the line is not posted yet.
With the Advanced Planning there are also changes on the Header.
Advanced Planning has also impact on all simulations. Instead of expected Last Done Date from the Order - expected Planned Ending Date is taken into consideration when the simulations are being created.
With Advanced Planning the user can also specify what will be the Starting and Ending Time of the line.
It can be empty, but once specified - can not be removed.
