Error description

  • In Graphical Scheduling (GS) if the predecessor finishes in
    working time, a non-interruptible successor should start in
    that same working shift and then finish in the non-working time
    if  it is long enough to extend into the non-working time.
    
    Now it is scheduling the successor as if it were
    interruptible meaning that it starts when it should but does
    not finish until some point in the next working shift.
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create a WO with two tasks. Interruptible
    should not be checked on either task or the WO.
    2. Give Task 10 a duration  of 3 and Task 20 a duration of 4.
    3. Make the first task, 10,  a predecessor of the second task,
    20, with a FS relationship of 0 lag.
    4. On the WO, set the scheduled start to the next Monday at
    7:00 AM and  finish date to that same date at 2:00 PM
    5. Create a Schedule using the DAY calendar, DAY shift, and
    have  Restrict Work To Dates unchecked.
    6. Work Query for the schedule should be for  the WO
    you created in Step 1
    7. Save
    8. Open Gantt View tab.
    9. Using the Gantt, drag Task 10  so that it's Finish is 2
    hours from the start of non-working time, for example 1pm.
    10. Calculate the schedule dates by clicking the toolbar icon
    labelled Perform Critical Path Method on All Rows.
    
    Task 10 finishes at 1pm so Task 20 starts at 1pm, this is
    correct.    Now you will see the problem, Task 2, being
    non-interruptible should finish at 5pm, 2 hours into the
    non-working time.    Instead you see it now exists all the way
    through the non-working time, finishing at 9am, 2 hours into
    the next working time shift.
