Automatically assigned lot numbers can now be defined by batch type in addition to facility. This allows you to have unique lot number definitions for each batch type at a facility.
Assign Lot Number when End Item Entered
The end item lot numbers can now be automatically assigned when a lot tracked end item is added to a batch. The setting can be enabled either for a facility or batch type. The setting applies to end items added to a batch via the Batch Entry window, or when an end item is added to a batch by converting planned orders to batches.
Previously, lot numbers were automatically assigned only when an end item quantity to complete was entered.
Separate Component and Formula Attributes
Attributes can now be configured as assignable to components, formulas, or both. To support this feature, two visibility settings have been added to the Attributes Setup window: Hide for components, and Hide for formulas.
When an attribute is hidden, the hidden attribute and any child attributes will not be available for selection on the applicable window.
Project Entry External Documents
External documents can now be associated with a project.
Planning Workbench Displays Formulas without Activity
The Planning Workbench can now retrieve and display formulas for which there are no open planned orders or batches. In addition, the list can be filtered for formulas that have activity, formulas that have no activity, or all formulas.
Previously, formulas without activity would not show up on the Planning Workbench.
