Labor Load Balancing is a graphical and interactive display of active preventative maintenance and demand maintenance work orders scheduled by personnel. Labor Load Balancing is located under the Work OrdersModule drop-down.
Personnel is searchable using the search box. An employee is considered "on a work order" if they are in the tasks and labor tab of an active work order.
The arrow button next to the graph moves the user into the next week for that user.
This is the screen showing 'daily' details for an employee. The employee is highlighted. Each work order will be represented by the info cards shown above. The exclamation icon will take the user to a tooltip showing all the tasks assigned to the user on the work order, as well as the 'Additional Details' panel. These items cannot be edited from here.
The user can switch jobs assigned to employees, by dragging and dropping the card to another user. For example, the user could drag 'Work Order 20160101001' by the 'handle' on the left side of the card to Sam Richards. Jim Holzman would be removed from all tasks on the work order, and Sam Richards will be added.
The card will disappear from Jim Holzman's queue and appear in Sam Richards.
In shift-based scheduling, we maintain shifts for scheduler activation. Scheduler services would be activated in given shift time.
