Last updated on JANUARY 26, 2011

Applies to:

Oracle Utilities Mobile Workforce Management - Version: 2.0.1 and later   [Release: 2.0 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Question 1:

Does Oracle Utilities Mobile Workforce Management (MWM) support long cycle jobs (i.e. jobs which may require days to complete)?  How does it get scheduled?  Is is possible to schedule a single activity over a number of crew shifts?  For example, if the activity requires 24 hrs to complete, is it possible to schedule it over three crew shifts of 8 hrs each over three days?  We observed that, if the duration of an activity is more than 8 hours, then the scheduler doesn't schedule that activity to any of crew shifts.

Question 2:

Does MWM support dependent tasks (i.e. scheduling the next task depending on the completion status of the first task)?
