How do I Interrupt an Activity?

In situations where an activity is scheduled to go off shift or on break, it is sometimes desirable to interrupt the current activity rather than wait until it is finished.

Suggested Technique

1. Define and assign a shift file as described in Scheduling Activities.

2. Check the interrupt box in the schedule dialog.

Example: An invoicing activity is actually performed by people who go to lunch at noon even though no resources are assigned to the activity; the resources are assumed since the activity time is the focus of the model. When the assumed people go to lunch and on break, the activity is shut down even if it’s in the middle of processing an invoice.

Interrupting an Activity

TO DO: Assign the shift file to the activity. Check Interrupt current activity… as shown above.
