The Visit Planner cannot be run if the visit has not yet been processed in the Orbit Planner. Prior to submission, both the Orbit and Visit Planners will need to have been run on the entire proposal.
Before initiating the Visit Planner, select the visit or visits you wish to process; selecting the "Visits" container will process all visits in the proposal. Note that, to properly determine the schedulability of a visit, all visits that are linked to that visit (e.g. with a GROUP WITHIN) should be processed at the same time. Therefore, selecting one visit from a linked set will result in ALL linked visits being processed.
Visit Planner is initialized, all selected visits appear with
which indicates that the display is out of date with
what is in the proposal (similar to the red title of the
Planner). If the visit has never been processed, the display states
that schedulability of the visit has not yet been computed. Note
that the there is a processing status line, which gives the
status of the
indicates the visit is schedulable.
A visit which is schedulable can still have diagnostics (in the
Tree Editor), while an unschedulable visit is indicated by a
(and has no total visibility).
By opening the key on an unschedulable visit, you can see which constraint, or combination of constraints, is causing the visit to be unschedulable.
