PDXpert 10.2 release notes (change history)

Published updates in the PDXpert 10.2 series software (all dates are UTC).

◄ Release 10.1  •  Release 10.3 ►

Windows XP and Windows 2003 do not support .NET 4.5.1 or SQL Server LocalDB, and are therefore incompatible with the PDXpert server software. Our client compatibility tests no longer include Windows XP and Server 2003.

If your PDXpert system currently uses SQL Server 2005, refer to the SQL Server upgrade instructions before installing this release.

Supported Microsoft products are shown in the PDXpert system requirements.

10.2.30167.2 (2015-08-19)

  • New Copy Default to Add Member context menu command creates a new collection member by duplicating the default (bold) collection member. Collections affected are Groups, Document Types, Part Types and Change Forms. [b13285]

  • New multi-level BOM stored procedure can optionally stop on first instance (including starting part) of selected part type, as defined in a new data transformation <sql/> query. [b13283]

  • New status bar message notifies administrators of service expiration starting 30 days before the subscription/MSU expiration date, and for 30 days thereafter. [b716]

  • Update BOM Quantity Category so that Per Setup parts (e.g., tooling or fixtures) are treated as zero quantity in roll-up and pick list reports. The parts remain displayed in reports. [b13284/c30143]

    Effect on your system: When calculating an assembly's cost, mass or other value, only the quantities assigned to Per assembly rows are included. The BOM cost roll-up stored procedure will assign zero quantity to a row with the category Per setup and, as previously, As needed.

    After upgrading: If your company uses the Per setup value in BOM rows, run cost roll-up and pick list reports to observe the change. Re-validate data transformations that use the BOM cost roll-up stored procedure. In general, consider listing Per setup parts in the assembly's References list rather than BOM list.
