Forward Vs Backward Scheduling Of Work Order Does Not Produce The Same Results When Using a Simulation Set.

You are seeing different results when using forward scheduling vs backward scheduling. In both the cases the scheduling method was the default method (which is routing based scheduling). You see that forward scheduling respects resource capacity simulation set changes.  And backward scheduling is based on shift hours without regard to the adjustments made to the resource hours via the resource simulation set.

Using Forward or Backward Scheduling should produce the same Discrete Job scheduled start and end times


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Responsibility = Work In Process (WIP)
2. Navigation = Discrete-> Discrete
3. Query Discrete Job
4. Change status to released
5. Choose backwards scheduling


You altered/created a Simulation Set
