    Yes, I'd like to have it there.

    If you want to leave the global setting, for me is indifferent : maybe you could use the global setting if none is used in routing position.

    Why the customer need this? Do you have an example?

    The customer needs it because for example they have this 2 cases :

    1) He has a machine made of three resources : A - B - C, each one with a different cost.

    They sometimes works togheter (A -B -C) , sometimes they work separately (only A-B , only B-C).

    When they work togheter, in routing definition I set the operation on A as master, operations on B and C as slave.

    The operator, with terminal, declares time only for the master operation, for an hour for example. This mean that B and C must get 1 hour each -> I should set  the option "No distribution"

    2) He has an operation master (no time planned), divided into 3 slaves (slave 1, 10 min - slave 2, 20 min - slave 3, 10 min).

    3 slaves are necessary, because they use 3 different resources with different costs.

    The operator this time declares only the master: 80 min -> the time should be distribuited on slaves as :

    slave 1, 20 min - slave 2, 40 min - slave 3, 20 min

    -> I should set  the option "Distribution Time percentage"

    (in this example I used 3 slaves, but in reality the 3 slaves could be 10 or 15: I cannot ask them to declare very slave)


    This is not possible now
