This article guides you step by step in the process of modelling an O&M campaign case.

Please follow the below step by step guide. Prior to starting your modelling you need to make sure a few things are set up: 

  • Input Library - make sure you have a base/port, a wind turbine, a CTV, SOV or Helicopter, and a weather file added in the Input Library. For more information on how to do this please see this article: Input Library.
  • Set up a project and a case - once you have all the information stored in your Input Library you can set up a project and cases. For more information go to Create a Project and Case.

Once this is set you can follow the below steps, or click on the header to go directly to the step:

Case info

Setting up the campaign period

1. Go to Personnel to set the case up as a campaign

Prior to starting one thing to consider if how you want to manage the start dates for your Scheduled maintenance task. 

  • Set up Campaign Period: There is an option to set up a campaign period, which we would recommend to do prior to setting up the case. This means the date under all Scheduled Maintenance tasks will by default be set to the campaign period you have already defined in the  Personnel tab, as seen above.

 In the case you don't want to skip this step, you would need to fill in the date manually on each Scheduled Maintenance task. 


1. Click on Build and select Bases

2. Click on + Add and select a base from your input library

3. Click on the base to edit the base

4. Fill in the input data required, and select a weather file. A weather data time series must be added. Save it afterwards. More information can be found in the link Ports and Bases.

Wind Farm

During a campaign, there is personnel available only for the campaign duration. In such a case, it is necessary to add a daily group of technicians especially for the campaign and one for the outside campaign period.

NOTE: When you turn on or off the campaign in the Personnel tab, all start dates for the Scheduled tasks created on the assets will be reset.

If you desire to add internal Full-Time Employees, Shoreline offers the FTE pre-calculation. This feature will help to calculate how many people need to be hired for the campaign and non-campaign period when clicking on Calculate & Save. For more information go to Personnel.

1. Click on Build and select Personnel - In the Campaign section, click "No campaign", and set your campaign's start- and end-dates.
