Check Process Capability


Check Process Capability eliminates decisions based on the comparison of the destination region's attributes and the region's Capability Point Value.


This function block has the following parameters:



Always Evaluate

Hard, Soft or Breakable. This parameter controls what happens when the extension eliminates all available decisions.

Hard: All decisions will remain eliminated. Enter a wait state after the logic script has completed.

Soft: Roll back any decisions eliminated by this extension.

Breakable: Roll back any decisions eliminated by this extension that have a danger point value of TRUE (non zero). The routing modules will first use the danger defined for each individual decision; and, if no danger point has been configured for the decision, then the site-wide danger point will be used. If no danger point can be found for a decision, then the decision remains eliminated.
