Ariadne - Technical description
After the competition program is complete, and before the program is to be printed, the start number are assigned to the entries /competing units. The assignment of the start numbers is in order of race number and of ranking within the races. The assignment of start numbers is contiguous between races, e.g. no reservation of start numbers between races.
With the assignment of start numbers, a check is done that a competing unit has two run records (for two series).
The assigned start numbers originate from T050-Start-number. Start numbers in this table, marked as missing, are not assigned.
On activation of the form, a check is performed whether there are competing units which are not assigned yet to a race, and whether there are categories which are assigned to more races (with exception of shadow races).
The start number assignment can begin from a start number as specified. (StartNumberOffset). In this way the start number assignment can begin with for instance start number 200. Further can be specified whether yes or no to overwrite earlier assigned start numbers. After automatical assignment of start numbers, the entry period is set to closed.
Function differentiation for the Downriver version
In the downriver version the start time is specified for each competing unit. There is a correspondence between the start number and the start time. The correspondence is that the unit number of the start minute is the same as the unit number of the start number. The assignment of start time / start number occurs per program block. In a program block the start number range is contiguous. Per program block the start time can be specified, plus the begin start number. Take care that the unit number of the start number corresponds with the unit number of the start time. E.g. start time of the block is 10:01, and the begin start number of the block is 21.
Also can be specified how many spare start numbers are to be reserved at the start of every event in the program block. If you want time blocks between races, you should assign these events to different program blocks.
*) P510-Add-runrecords checks per series for a competing unit if T510-runrecords are present. If not, run records are added.
