  • Service Time calculation

    Hi :

    Can anyone please give me some input on how OTM calculates the Service Times ? What factors it considers ? I am sure it may not be simple - but any guidelines will help.

    We are using OTM5.5 CU2.

    Thanks in advance.
    Jay.

    Re: Service Time calculation

    There are a couple of ways to setup service time calculation. For instance, there is a simulation which you can setup to calculate the service time. Such as 50 mph for a max of 11 hours and then driver must rest for a minimum of 10 hours. So in one example you can have a shipment which has a distance of 700 miles the service time would be

    50 mph * 11hr
    1 rest * 10hr
    50mph * 3hr

    Total time = 24 hrs
    Total Distance = 700 miles

    There are many other settings that can be setup including using an external service time system. Hopefully this explains a little bit.

      Thanks so much bfolan. That really helped for a head start.

      Now, when does the Location Activity Time definitions come into play ? Pickup, Receive activity.

      Thanks

        If the source location is picked up on Friday at noon but the destination calendar is Monday through Friday 8am to 5pm receive the system will calculate a wait time from Saturday noon until Monday 8am. The shipment will have a start time of Friday noon and an end time of 8am Monday. There is also setting which you can determine max wait time which is acceptable. Also every setting can be adjusted.
