Fixes

Defect number Development area Description
EPM-8365 Production control

In Maintenance > Production Control > Finish Maintenance, it is now possible to add finish mappings to a finish. Imports will check the finish mappings when looking up the correct finish record. For example, PNT may benefit from having the mappings P, PAINT, and PAINTED. See also Manage material finish options.

EPM-8368 Production control

In Maintenance > Production Control > Finish Maintenance, it is now possible to export the finish data to an XML file. See also Manage material finish options.

EPM-8518 Production control

Previously, in Production Control, generic DSTV files sent to other software could include an incorrect depth for dimensions where the Depth property differed from the nominal depth. This issue has now been fixed.

EPM-8339 Administration

MySQL binary logging is now disabled during a database restore to avoid the potential of creating many gigabytes worth of unnecessary logs. Also, for servers running MySQL 8.0 the binary log expiration is set to 7 days (down from the default of 30 days) to limit their accumulation.

EPM-8356 Administration

Nesting extensions built with .NET 6 are now supported.

EPM-8399 Purchasing

Previously, in Purchase Orders, the sequence filter was not applied correctly to subcontract items. This issue has now been fixed.

Previously, in Purchase Orders, an error occurred when attempting to perform a global edit to update the purchasing notes field. This issue has now been fixed.

EPM-8434 Purchasing

Previously, in Purchase Orders, the Copy Selected to Another Purchase Order option was not working for material records. This issue has now been fixed.

EPM-8328 Requisitions

Previously, on requisition reports that list the combined parts, plates always printed (0.00 SqFt) at the end of the Width X Length string. This issue has now been fixed.

EPM-8354 Integrations

Previously, when a nesting interface submitted an update to a nest without including the CombinationRunID, the remnant details were not properly updated. This issue has now been fixed.

EPM-8420 Integrations

Previously, the inventory sent to the ProNest nesting extension did not use the ProNest Designation thickness for plates with a gage thickness. This issue has now been fixed.

EPM-8539 Integrations

Previously, when a nesting integration attempted to save nesting results to Tekla PowerFab for parts that were in a requisition, an error occurred if the reference number did not match the PDC piece mark. This issue has now been fixed.

EPM-8398 Tekla EPM Go

Previously, in Tekla PowerFab Go, Inventory items that are not linked to PDC items did not appear in the results when drilled down on a blank sequence or lot number. This issue has now been fixed.

EPM-8380 Automated events
