Use myAvail’s Pullout Management feature to perform the following functions:
- Operator to run assignments
- Vehicle to block assignments
- Operator and Extra-board check-in process
- Notifications for late or missed check-ins, logins, and pullouts
- Manage Trippers (Additional or make-up service)
These functions are provided by two sections on the Operations tab - Pullout Grid and Yard Map Grids - and two top-level tabs - Operator Assignment and Vehicle Assignment. If the pullout management feature is included in your system, your assigned position determines which Operations windows and supporting tabs you can access.
This chapter describes each of these functions and how to use these screens to help manage vehicle pullouts.
myAvail includes a Yard Management feature that dispatchers often use in conjunction with Pullout Management. Yard Management provides the ability to enter the location of vehicles in the yard and to identify vehicles that are down for maintenance. This feature includes drag-and-drop functionality that you can use to assign vehicles to Pullout Management.
