The Allocator will try to assign the required airplane type and the planned wing to the mission. If there is no capacity available, the mission will be marked UNASSIGNABLE. Since usually there are more than one wing for a given aircraft type, the Barrel would eventually consider using an aircraft from a different wing than the one specified by the planner. To make the Allocator consider alternative wings during automatic allocation, (1) open the Mission Window, (2) from the Options menu use the Allocation Preferences command to open the preferences window, and (3) select the set of wings to be used by setting the value of the field Resource Sets.
To create any of these views, from the Views menu on the top-level panel, use the Missions command to create a mission oriented view or the Resources cascading menu to create different types of resource views. These resource views are the graphical representation of the commitment matrix. The Resource Inspector provides a hierarchical view of the available resources and allows the creation of resource views grouping different types of resources. These groupings are particularly useful when considering alternative resource allocations. Bookmarks can also be created for frequently used grupings.
Select more than one resource by shift clicking on its name and create the resource view using the menu command View | Capacity Profile
