The task priority is composed of a number (from 1 to 99) and a letter (S for Statutory, P for Production, A for Auxiliary, C for Contingency).
Examples: 1A, 1P, 99A and 4C
Task priorities are primarily used to sort tasks and secondly on resource calculations.
Task priority is used determine the display order of tasks everywhere they are arranged in a list configuration, such as in the Planning Board and Shift Plan screens.
Fewzion first considers the S, P, A or C at the end of priority (e.g. 1S), where S is the highest priority and C the lowest; then, the number at the beginning of the priority (e.g. 1S), where 1 is the highest priority and 99 the lowest is considered.
Examples: 1S, 5S, 1P, 10P, 6A and 1C
In the above example, the two Ss are shown before the two Ps, followed by the A and lastly the C task
When two or more tasks have exactly the same priority (e.g. three 5A tasks), they are sorted alphabetically on a sub-level by their respective task descriptions.
- 5A - Daily checks on Breaker…
- 5A - Daily inspections on 33ct…
- 5A - Test dump valve every 4…
Fewzion may be configured to sort tasks in one of two ways
- by priory and then description (default)
- by task type, priority and then description
The latter is more convenient when a multitude of tasks are consistently being scheduled on each shift, as it more effectively groups tasks within their corresponding type.
The C priority is intended for contingency tasks and, are therefore excluded from the required resources calculation on the assumption that contingency tasks are not expected to be completed on a shift running according to plan. Therefore, in contingency situations, resources are not planned to be required for the shift.
