The ProcessChangeoverPrognosisType is a prognosis indicating at which time in the future the machine tool has to be prepared for its next manufacturing process. This might e.g. be the change of a fixture within the machine tool. It can also be used to group different manual steps like tool changes and loading new parts when done between processes, usually given as setup instruction.
The ProcessChangeoverPrognosisType is formally defined in Table 61.

Activity indicates the specific task(s) to perform or the indication of the setup instruction.
Location is the place where the activity for the process changeover is located within the machine tool. This may for example be the indication and number of the working area.
