Dead Cycles – A Week Counter
Definition- ECC-MTB Posting Cycles during which MASTER FILE postings do not occur.
No data is lost. The delay in posting is solely related to start-up for the yearly changes to the Master Files.
For BMF, there are two dead cycles each year. For 2015, they are ECC-MTB Posting Cycles 201501 and 201502. BMF transactions that are sent from the campus locations during GMF Campus Production Cycles 201501, 201502, and 201503 will attempt to post to the BMF during ECC-MTB Posting Cycle 201503.
For IMF, there are three dead cycles each year. For 2015, they are ECC-MTB Posting Cycles 201501, 201502, and 201503. IMF transactions that are sent from the campus locations during GMF Campus Production Cycles 201501, 201502, 201503, and 201504 will attempt to post to the IMF during ECC-MTB Posting Cycle 201504.
Most campus processing can continue during the dead cycles. Just as with Accelerated Cycles, the majority of the impact is on Master File processing at ECC-MTB.
