2 Hours or More to Generate a Schedule

    Hello,

    We are experiencing 2 hours or more to generate a schedule with 62 agents. We are on 2020R3 P7.
    I see an older posts (2015) the same concern was reported and newer versions addressed this problem.  Is anyone else seeing this and if so, is there a way to decrease the generation time?

    Thanks,
    Tina

    Hi Tina - There is no right or wrong way to do it so I'm unable to provide specific parameters to adjust, but you can cause the schedule generation time to speed up or slow down by adjusting config options in the SU and in the shift definitions.

    I'd suggest you start with a review of the Scheduling Unit Configuration > 'Scheduling' parameters such as Preference vs Coverage, Shrinkage, Calibration, etc... As well, you'll want to review the Daily Constraints and Activities in each schedule definition to look for opportunities to tighten up or narrow times ranges for evaluation.

    The simulation that is happening at schedule generation is client side, not server side, so general PC stats can also impact the run time.
