    Hi,

    from a business point of view the reference cycles are used to manage returning manufacturing patterns. For example in the paper industry you produce cycles of different paper grades. Let's say 3 days of paper with 60 g / m2 then 2 days of paper with 80 g / m2 and then 1 day with 100 g / m2. That cycle with 6 days is repeated constantly.

    You do not want to enter the pattern again and again but you define the cycle once and then enter the number of repetions. This will create the blocks.

    Block planing helps to schedule the matching operations for the products to the right period.
