This is very nice... it beats the sun and shadow detail that I was referring to.

Thats the one, its a very handy graphical demonstration of the suns path for explaining the scheduling requirements from our point of view, you can show some production people a SunPath chart til the cows come home, sometimes they just dont get it.

Actually if you said 'milking time' and 'cows come home' to some of the people I've worked with recently they'd probably understand :)
