Finite Capacity Scheduling Instruments

Tighten queues

With this feature you can minimize gaps between operations on a resource by shifting all operations to the scheduling start position as far as possible.

The function differs from "Fill idle times" in that it does not change the order of the operations. Please note that operations before the scheduling start will not be affected.

The picture below shows an example with operations before they were tightened:
