Example of several time limitations
Lesson number 76 in the Demo2.gpn file is used here as an example. This is a coupled lesson with four classes (1a, 1b, 2a and 2b).
For the sake of simplicity teacher, class and subject factors are not considered in this example.
The following date limits are now entered for the classes under 'Classes | Master Data': for class 1a from 7 October to 23 February. This period is used in the calculation of lesson number 76 (limitation factor: 0.4390).
The value for the lesson is the product of weekly periods and time limitation factor: 2 * 0.4390 = 0.88
If you now enter a time limitation for the lesson, e.g. 13 January to 27 April (15 weeks), it will apply to the entire coupling. All other time limitations will be overridden.
The limitation factor is now based on the new time limitation: 0.3659.
The new value for the lesson is the product of weekly periods and time limitation factor: 2 * 0.3659 = 0.73.
