Feature 1: Consolidated Shipment in Sale process
Impact area: Sales module
Introduction: Previously to this release, DEAR did not have the capability to consolidate several packages of a sale order into one shipment, instead generating shipping labels separately for each package. This caused elevated costs when sending shipment information to shipping services.
In this release, multiple packages can be consolidated into a single shipment.
Functionality: See more information for detailed instructions.
Feature 2: Scheduler improvements
Impact area: Production module
Introduction: The DEAR Production Scheduler visualises Production Order information, providing transparency for the production process so that the user always knows what should be produced and when it should be completed. One of the core abilities of the Scheduler is to reschedule Production Orders, Production Runs and operations. The scheduler helps to assess how long the order should take, determine the resources loading, and plan in which sequence the operations should be completed.
With this release, production operations in a run are automatically rescheduled to reflect when a run or operation is started early, started late, completed early, when the quantity to produce has been changed, and when Actual time for production is changed manually.
NOTE: Re-scheduling only affects operations in the affected production run. It does not affect any other production runs, production orders or nested orders.
Additionally, a new setting has been added to group nested orders with the parent order. Dependencies for nested order from the parent order are now shown. An indicator for the current date has also been added to the scheduler.
Feature 3: B2B Portal Min. Quantity to Order now accepts decimal values and values less than 1.
Impact area: B2B Portal
