Can I use the forecast function to explore various staffing options?
When you run a forecast, SLIM-Control bases the future staffing profile on the peak staff and staffing shape defined in the current plan.
While Phase 3 is ongoing, run a tradeoff forecast to see the impact of increasing or decreasing staff and apply any resulting schedule tradeoff to your existing forecast. To run a tradeoff forecast, select Control | Tradeoff Forecast… from the menu.
Once Phase 3 has completed, use the maintenance forecast to evaluate staff tradeoffs. The maintenance forecast can only be performed during Phase 4. To run a maintenance forecast, select Control | Run Forecast… from the menu.
