Step 6 - Defining a holiday model

As no production takes place on bank holidays - whereas such holidays can occur on any day between Monday and Friday -, holidays require the use of a specific model. This model is very simple, as it contains no shifts. In this situation, you should always remember that a model related to a special day has priority over default models used for "usual" Monday-to-Sunday weeks. The emphasis lies on "default models". To briefly explain this, let us simply say that single-day allocations have a higher priority level than special days. A model which does not comprise any shifts possesses the same priority level as a day to which no models are linked.

As described in step 4, create a model named Holiday. No shifts whatsoever are to be defined in this model.
