Reminder: Pattern can be placed anywhere in a Reserve bid group (in a Pairings bid group it is always at the top). The condition is only applied to awards that come from the bid preferences after the condition bid.
Tells the N-PBS Scheduler to create a Reserve block that follows a pattern of days on and days off.
You can specify a range of days on and a minimum number of days off between duty periods.
A working pre-award, such as training or a pairing awarded through Coverage Awards, is considered to be a day on.
A non-working pre-awards, such as vacation, is considered to be a day off.
For a reserve line Pattern Bid, an in-period working pre-award that is too short does not violate the pattern.
Set Condition Pattern Between 3 and 7 Days On with 3 Days Off (minimum)
The N-PBS Scheduler tries to award you a reserve block that follows the pattern of working days (including pre-awards) between 3 and 7 followed by a minimum of 3 days off.
A carry-in pairing or in-period working pre-award that is too short does not violate the pattern, nor does a too-short block of days off between pre-awards.
