Job Duration has Changed

I'm getting this error when trying to research blueprints. These are blueprints that have already been partially researched and I have skilled up Advanced Industry, Research and Metallurgy in the interim.

Any thoughts on what might be happening?

The blueprint window isn't dynamic. It calculates the current conditions when you open it and displays static information (with the exception of quantity and job run). As a result, if anything changes in the background that impacts the materials, price, or duration while you have the tab open, it pitches an error. Simply close the the window and reopen it.

Having said that, there are only a few things that impact job duration and they don't change very frequently, so I wouldn't think this is a common problem. My guess is that you completed some skill training while the blueprint window was open.

Your explanation makes sense. I logged out and logged back in and the industry window is now working just fine.

Thanks for your response.
