Release Notes: Version 11.30

(May 3, 2018)

New Features:

  • RCI: Remove reliance on users' local time for time offsets:
    • Fixed an issue that would cause weekly recurring capacity intervals to shift after daylight saving time changes.
  • Material Availability: Update calculation to account for Lot codes:
    • Updated material availability Gantt lines to account for lot codes.

Corrected Issues:

  • Exception error when optimizing.
  • MRP: Purchase Orders are generated that are not required.
  • Commit Schedule: Null reference exception:
    • Fixed an issue when committing a schedule.
  • Grids cancel without notice:
    • Fixed an issue where UI grids are canceling without notice or display to the user. This was causing inaccuracies when using grids.
  • MRP: Required dates on PurchaseOrders are set to later than the demand.
  • Resource change dialog — Save and Close causes jobs to unschedule when resources are changed. 
  • Advancing the Clock causes an Offline interval to appear:
    • Fixed an issue where Recurring Capacity Intervals were not correctly recurring if the start date was in the future and the end of the recurrence was based on an end date.
  • Exception on Expedite:
    • Fixed an object reference error that could occur on Expedite in some cases.
  • Resource Transfer Time can be lost when predecessor operations are finished.
  • Jobs with a finished operation that has transfer time and a started successor operation fail to schedule.
  • When the first operation is finished, the job fails to schedule:
    • Fixed a rare issue that could cause a job to fail to schedule.
  • Job marked as late even though it is finishing on time.
  • The Manual Schedule Only box does not work when optimizing by plant.
  • The Move Activities button gives an object reference error:
    • Fixed an issue in the Activities Grid where using the move buttons would result in an error.
  • Jobs fail to schedule after an Import is performed:
    • Resolved: If a Job exists in the System and is scheduled and then a new Job is imported that has a successor MO linked to the existing Job, the first job fails to schedule on Constraint Change Adjustment. It should unschedule. When it fails to schedule, it causes other jobs to fail to schedule as well.
  • All operations are being flagged as Late in the Scheduling tab.
  • Product Rule: Job fails to schedule
    • Added validation to resolve this: This is being caused by a data validation problem.
      Operations 30s activity is set the state of Running, but it has an available
      material date in the future. It should not be set to Running if its available
      material date is in the future.
    • If an activity is already running, the system presumes there are no constraints preventing the operation from starting, such as the current and future available material for operation 30.
  • Tanks: Tanks not emptying:
    • Fixed an issue that prevented multiple jobs from emptying one tank.
  • Operations are scheduled to run simultaneously on single-tasking resources.
  • JIT Start Date is incorrect and the Job shows as Late.

Minor Changes:

  • UI Error: Duplicate key.
  • Error: Window Handle Error.
  • Purchase Orders' default scheduled receipt date is 6/21/2003.
    • When manually creating a new Purchase Order, the default values have been updated to be more relevant. 
  • Endless Scrolling on the Materials Grid.
    • Fixed an issue that could cause the materials grid to slowly scroll on its own.
  • Error when searching grids.
    • Grid layouts in the Mapping Wizard now save correctly.
  • The Materials Grid can’t filter the “UnavailableQty” column. It returns a System Message: "Object must be of type Decimal".
  • Add PlannedScrapQty fields to publish:
    • Added the following new fields to publish:
      • MaterialRequirement
      • PlannedScrapQtyOperation
      • PlannedScrapQtyMR
      • AllowPartialSupply
  • Publishing User Defined field of type TimeSpan fails.
  • WebInstaller: Remove admin requirement when installing the client manager. 
    • When installing the client manager, the web-installer does not need to be run as an Administrator. This will make it easier for customers to install it on client workstations. If admin permissions are required to install the selected features, the user will be prompted.
  • What-If – Undo – displays user ID not user Name.
  • GetCriticalRatio calculation updated.
  • UI Performance slowed when logging large amounts of import errors.
  • Inventory Plan – On Hand Plot shows job materials twice.
