Error description

  • The Graphical Scheduling application at times can show a
    negative duration value. The issue stems from the assignment
    being made outside of the scheduler dates and then being back
    into the window of start and end date specified on the
    graphical scheduling record.
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    1, Create a new work order and add a location or asset to the
    work order.
    2. In the Scheduling Information section of the work order
    check the Interruptible flag and set a target start date a day
    away from the current date and make the end date a day after
    the start date. Set the duration to 20 hours.
    3. On the plans tab add 2 task, make both interruptible, make
    each a duration of 10 hours and set the Target start date and
    end date to the same value set on the work order tab.
    4. Add 2 crafts, 1 for each task added to work order and save.
    5. In the Graphical Scheduling application create a new
    scheduler record. Add the calendar, shift and the work order
    number created from above. Notice the start and end date for
    the scheduler, that is a 14 day window by default based on the
    off set value set on the on the More Information tab.
    6. Move the Graphical View tab, here we will see the task 10
    and 20 both have the target start date set earlier in the Work
    Order application.
    7. Right click on the work order number and move the work order
    tracking application.
    8. For both the parent work order and the 2 task set the
    Scheduled Start and End date to a date range that is past the
    14 day window set on the scheduler record. For instance if the
    date ends on April 15 set the scheduled start for May 1st and
    the end date for May 2nd, just make sure to not use a weekend
    date. Once the scheduled start and end dates have been set on
    both work order tab and plans tab save the changes made and
    return back to the Scheduler application.
    9. Once back to the Scheduler application perform a discard
    changes and refresh so that the changes made are reflected on
    the scheduler record. We should now see the start and end date
    on the record reflect the changes made when in the work order
    tracking application.
    10. Double click the description field for task 10 so that you
    are taken to the assignment for that task. Right click on the
    task and select move to date, move the assignment back to a
    date range that now falls between the original dates when the
    scheduler record was created (if needed check the schedule tab
    for dates).
    RESULTS:
    11. Save the changes made and we should notice that the
    duration for the task moved now shows in a negative value, this
    is incorrect it should not be a negative value.
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    That it would have moved back to the date and the duration
    value would have remained a positive value.
    REPORTED IN VERSION:
    Maximo 7.6.1.0 with Scheduler 7.6.7.1
