Error description

  • This APAR is based on IJ05242  which was fixed for several
    versions but has reappeared in 7.6.1.0 IFix 003.
    Graphical Scheduling (GS) shows craft availability displaced by
    one day for complicated shift patterns when using different
    Time Zones.
    Reproduced in 7.6.0.9
    The problem was not reproducible using the plain DAY
    shift.     It was reproducible using a shift pattern with:
    - a rotating 14 day pattern (see below)
    - 12am start times and 12am end times with zero work hours for
    the days where no work happens instead of just leaving all of
    those fields blank as we typically do as in DAY Shift.
    - Start and End times define an 8.5 or 9.5 hour long day but
    they put in 8 or 9 as they have 1/2 hour off for lunch.
    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Go to Calendars and create a new Calendar for one year, such
    as 1/1/18 to 12/31/18.
    2. Choose Define/Apply Shifts from the Actions menu.
    3. In the Shifts section a the top of the dialog click on New
    Row.    Call the Shift Test2Wks.    Start Day Sunday, Days in
    Pattern 14.
    4.  Make a Shift Pattern like this:
    Day         Start               End               Work Hours
    001          12:00 AM       12:00 AM              0
    002            6:00 AM        3:30 PM               9
    003            6:00 AM        3:30 PM               9
    004            6:00 AM        3:30 PM               9
    005            6:00 AM        3:30 PM               9
    006          12:00 AM       12:00 AM              0
    007          12:00 AM       12:00 AM              0
    008          12:00 AM       12:00 AM              0
    009            6:00 AM        3:30 PM               9
    010            6:00 AM        3:30 PM               9
    011            6:00 AM        3:30 PM               9
    012            6:00 AM        3:30 PM               9
    013            6:00 AM        2:30 PM               8
    014          12:00 AM       12:00 AM              0
    5. Apply that new Shift to the new Calendar.
    6. Go To Labor application and change 2 Labors for the craft
    you will use for Planned Labor for the new WO you create below
    to use the new Calendar/Shift.    For example, take 2 of the
    Labor for Electrician Firstclass and put them on the new
    Calendar/Shift.    Do this so there will be some data to appear
    on the Scheduler when we get there.
    7. Create a new WO with a duration of 5 and give it Planned
    Labor of the Craft chosen above.
    8. Go to Graphical Scheduling and create a new Schedule.
    9. Give it the new Calendar/Shift.    Give it a Start Date of 2
    days in the future.
    10. Create a Work Query to select the new WO.
    11. Save.
    12. Click on the Gantt View tab (Graphical View in some
    versions).
    13. Observe how in the Resources section in the bottom half of
    the screen has the Yellow bars denoting the Availability of the
    Crafts  only in the white working time slots for each day.
    14. Go to Profile - Defaults and change to the Africa/Algiers
    Time Zone.   Click OK.
    15. Log out and log back in.
    16. Go to GS and open the schedule you created.
    17. Click on the Gantt/Graphical View tab.
    ERRONEOUS RESULTS:
    You will now observe that in the second week the first Yellow
    Availability bar is on the grey area of Sunday, not in the
    white area of Monday.
    This shifting of the Yellow bars should not happen.
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    For the Yellow bars not to shift to Sunday in the second week,
    or any weeks.
