Improving of resource capacity indication in Resource Screen (RS)

The red/green capacity indication in RS can never be 100% accurate due to performance constraints. If each tour with all its stops and orders [and potentially differently assigned carrying resources] [and potentially different capacities per country] needed to be analysed in detail for each resource in RS, that would take too long. Therefore some short cuts are taken and the RS red/green is to be considered a 90% accurate information.

Another fact which makes it unsharp is, the fixed truck/trailer combination which is respected if such a truck (or trailer) is selected (meaning, the total capacity is counted); but it could well be, that for this particular tour the dispatcher would dissolve the fixed combination.

In short, the waterproof capacity validation only can happen in Gantt Screen (GS) with the conflict analyser. However, in this release, the "short-cut capacity calculation" from RS was improved (without performance impact) as follows:
- The capacity definition per transport type is better respected mainly also for the none-capacity resources (e.g. tractors or bridges)
- In the previous version a non-capacity resource was by definition if ALL vehicle capacity entries for this vehicle were 0, for ALL transport types.

As soon as one transport type assigned capacities for that vehicle, it was also considered a capacity resource for other transport types, which led to "wrong" conclusions in RS
- Now it is possible to define a resource as non-capacity resources for certain transport types, but for capacity resources for other transport type. Quite hypothetical, but more accurate and better for performance too.
- The definition "a none-capacity resource (e.g. tractor/bridge) is not validated in RS and always shows green" is still valid.

Pre-load transport leg (load during night, before tour start)

A new flag on the transport leg was introduced, indicating that the LOADING activity for this leg happens pior to its tour's start point in time, e.g. in the night before. Hence the loading activity scheduler will calculate 0 duration for such legs in the tours. [And also hand over 0 duration to the optimizer.]

- Tour start date/time defines the work start point for all activities which are NOT pre-loaded
- Tour start date/time does not necessarily define the tour departure time. (Can be, if all activities are 0, pre-loaded, or no activities exist)
- [There is no depot work planning feature, hence we do not provide advanced depot planning activities. However, what can be done, is, to register the confirmed pre-load activity and store it on the tour, also if that activity started earlier than the tour start. This is also used in the Truck Loading App, where we can release a tour to depot to work on it also before tour start]

This feature is a simple approach, which allows to store the information on the right place (leg), interpret it for the optimizer, give the dispatcher the chance to change it on the leg(s) and initialize the flag from one rule so far, the cross-docking split rule.
Further rules are possible (e.g. depending on unloading time window, or depending on route, etc), but not implemented yet.

Introducing an advanced persistent design configuration of the GPB 'Transport orders /-legs' screen (grid fields/filters/sorting)

Newly, it is possible to store the design configuration of GPB 'Transport orders /-legs' screen per each user/worker. Users/workers can activate/deactivate fields in the grid, change the column width, activate/deactivate filtering for each column, set up distinct filters per column etc.
The current design configuration can be saved to current worker either manually (via dedicated 'Templates' action button group) or is saved automatically (when just closing the form).

Further notes:
- The automatically saved design configuration is not saved to templates (but is saved directly to user), and is re-loaded next time the user opens the form. It also overrules the assigned template (that is saved on the worker).
- Templates are stored in 'Template OS configuration' (main menu -> CAPcargo Transport -> Setup -> GPB) and can be also managed there.
- Assignment of template to worker is done on the 'Workers' form (in tab CAPcargo Transport, in section Filter Initialization Dispatching, in group Transport legs, via parameter Template OS configuration)

The issue was caused by orphaned default tour stops, which were not linked to any default tour template. _x000D_
As previously, it was possible to create (and save) default tour stops that were not linked to any default tour template. This could be achieved when creating new default tour template, by saving a new default tour stop record before the new default tour header was saved. _x000D_
Such constellation then caused that no new default tour template could be created (until the orphaned default tour stop was deleted). The issue was corrected and now it is possible to create default tour stops only when default tour header is already saved.

New feature 'Tour validation' has been introduced to the GPB 'Transport orders /-legs' screen

A new feature is added to the GPB 'Transport orders /-legs' screen – Tour validation – that enables the user to check the transport legs before they are planned into the selected tour. It is parameterizable what the system analyses when the new logic is executed:
- capacity check: compares all planning quantities of the not yet planned transport leg with the minimum available capacity of the entire tour in all units
- qualification check: validates the static qualifications of the not yet planned transport leg and the static qualifications of the tour whether there are conflicting/missing qualifications

Based on the capacity validation and the qualification validation, each transport leg is classified whether based on the capacity it would fit into the tour and whether based on the static qualifications it would fit into the tour. This information is shown on the transport leg directly in the grid, furthermore, new filters are introduced to show:
- only those transport legs that would fit into the tour based on capacity/qualification check
- only those transport legs that would not fit into the tour based on capacity/qualification check
- all the transport leg regardless the result of the capacity/qualification check

Limitation/simplification of the new logic is that at this point the exact position of the not yet planned transport leg in the tour is not known. Hence the validations always consider the whole tour – both for capacity and qualification validation. This also means that the function performs best – most accurate – for distribution, collection and direct tours.

Please note:
- The 'Tour validation' action button appears in c (in Conflict field group) when some tour validation is activated in main GPB parameters, and becomes available when some tour is selected in some GPB gantt screen

Existing transport orders could not be processed, even though the customer parameterization of "Invoice and delivery on hold" & "Allow processing/invoicing of existing transport orders' would signify so

Combination of customer parameterization of "Invoicing and delivery on hold=All" & "Allow processing/invoicing of existing transport orders=Yes" was previously not working correctly, as the already existing transport orders could not be processed (eg. the price calculation could not be performed, tours could not be released for departure and also could not be confirmed). The issue was fixed.

Please note:
- Combination of customer parameterization of "Invoicing and delivery on hold=Invoice" & "
Allow processing/invoicing of existing transport orders=Yes" currently allows the creation of transport legs (for existing transport orders), which is not exactly correct (ie. the transport leg creation should be also supressed). But this should not represent a major issue, as such transport legs cannot be then planned into tours, due to existing validations.

KNOWN ISSUE: Sequence optimization of tour is not supported by PTV xServer2

Sequence optimization of tour is not supported by PTV xServer2, as following faulty behaviour was encountered, after using sequence optimization on the test application that has PTV xServer2 enabled:
- tour stops being duplicated
- disappearing tour end stop
- tour end stop being positioned to the middle of the tour

- It is currently not recommended to switch to PTV xServer2 if the project relies on the sequence tour optimization feature.
- Should the feature still be used with PTV xServer2, this should happen only after careful testing of all tour structure scenarios. Also each individual sequence optimization result then should be manually verified by user.
- The issue is only with with the PTV xServer2, the previous PTV xServer [1.x] versions are not anyhow affected.
- CAPcargo team will handle the sequence optimization compatibility with PTV xServer [2.x] in the future TMS versions.
