A calendar represents a numeric value that is varying over time.
Calendars can be linked to multiple entities: a maximum capacity limit of a resource, a minimum capacity usage of a resource, a minimum or maximum inventory limit of a buffer, etc…
A calendar has multiple buckets to define the values over time. See calendar buckets for more details. To determine the calendar value at a certain date the calendar will evaluate each of the buckets and combine the results in the following way:
- A bucket is only valid from its “start” date (inclusive) till its “end” date (exclusive).Outside of this date range a bucket is never selected.
- If multiple bucket are effective on a date, the one with the lowest “priority” value is taken.In case buckets have the same priority, the value of the bucket with the latest start date is selected.
In case no bucket is effective on a certain date, the calendar will return the “default” value.
|name||non-empty string||Unique name of the calendar. This is the key field and a required attribute.|
|default||double||The default value of the calendar when no bucket is effective.|
