Shift Dependent Conveyors

The Conveyor Shifts button on Conveyor Properties dialogs allows Conveyors to be allocated to shifts. This is useful in cases where the Conveyor being represented is limited in terms of available operating hours.

To add allocate a Conveyor to a shift, click the SHIFT button on the Conveyor Properties Dialog (or Additional tab in the Ribbon) and check the option “Use Shift Patterns Directly”. Click the Allocation button and set the allocation number for each shift in the list (a value of 1 means the Conveyor is available on the shift, and a value of 0 means the Conveyor is unavailable).
