How Days In Cycle are calculated in the Align Multi-Channel (MC) Cycle capacity page?
Days In Cycle is calculated by the expression: ((end_date__aln - start_date__aln) + 1 ) - (weekends + days_off_cycle__aln).
Cycle working days should be caculated using the expression: (end_date__aln - start_date__aln) - weekends.
Weekend days are calculated by the expression: (The Total # of days / 7) *2. The decimal point is rounded off.
The days_off_cycle__aln is the number of days during a cycle not counted as part of the cycle (company days off, holidays, etc.).
- Start Date = 2019-05-01
- End Date = 2019-05-31
- Days off Cycle = 6
- Total # of days between these: 31
- Weekend days = (31 / 7) * 2 = 8 (the 31/7 is being rounded down from 4.42 to 4)
- Days In Cycle = 31 - 6 - 8 = 17
