To help determine the total time available to complete a project stage, a SOLIDWORKS Manage Administrator can define the company default working days and hours. A user can then refine these hours based on their availability. In this way a total amount of available hours for a project can be determined.

The default hours for working days is set by the SOLIDWORKS Manage Administrator, from the Administration Options Structures Module.
