1. Max duration on stop causes has been added

It is now possible to setup how long a stop may last, when it is categorized to a stop cause, if the stop is longer than what is setup, then the stop is split into 2 stops.

In Stop causes, Max duration (sec.) and Stop cause after max. duration has been added:

Max duration (sec.) sets how many seconds a stop may last, when it is categorized to the specific stop cause.

Stop cause after max duration sets the stop cause for the new stop, if the original stop lasted longer than Max duration(sec.). If no stop cause is set here, then the original stop cause is used.

This function is useful, for when one has a stop that always happen in a process, which can't be avoided. For example, say that in a startup process for a new product, you have a stop that always happens and it last 2 minutes. When you can use this function to ensure that the stop created from this process max can last 2 minutes in the OEE, if when that the stop last longer than 2 minutes, a new stop will be created, which can be categorized just like any other stop.
