FIT-Server

Bugfixes/Changes

  • If a lot of time data was created at the same time, SQL Server occasionally encountered errors that prevented all records from being created correctly. This problem has been fixed.

Enhancements

  • When logging transmissions in the time data, additional file number and file name can now be transferred to the data set.
  • Update of Apache Tomcat to version 8.5.34

Bugfixes/Changes

  • Mazak COMServer ISO transmission: The serial configuration parameter "Wait for Xon" is now correctly evaluated. The previous key "WaitOnXonBeforeSending" in mi_server.ini no longer has to be set - but will still be evaluated.
  • Connection via W&T COMServer: When the MI is started, the start process now aborts if the connection to the control port (e.g. 9094) is not possible. For the MI to start, the connection to the control and data port must be possible.
  • Under Linux no mi_log.txt has been written since the last Apache Tomcat update. This bug has been fixed.

FIT-HI-WebMenu

Enhancements

  • The shop papers can now be printed as reprints from the order data using a template.

  • In the "Personnel time recording" module, the "Business trip" absence can now also be created without the shift model default time (e.g. on weekends). In this case no button for saving will be displayed in Excel.
  • In the evaluation, the start and end of work as well as the rounded values for start and end of work are now displayed in "Calculation variant B".
  • The automatically calculated fields (setup time, running time, disturbance time) can now also be can be logged as well.

    This has been fixed.

  • The version integrated in Apache Tomcat is now used as the database connection pool.

Bugfixes/Changes

  • Problems with the selection of the files during confirmation and display problems (scaling) with the S840D are solved.
  • Performance problems in the FIT-MI administration and in FIT-HI-DNC have been fixed.
  • As of V2018.3, the transfer to the machine failed during transfer if the old configuration parameter "PartRecordMethod" was used instead of the new parameter "Filename" in the configuration file FilenameBuilder.properties to generate the file name. The group/number of a workplace via the FIT-MI-Administration didn't work correctly.


FIT-HI-MES

Enhancements

  • The employee pictures when logging on/off in PZE and the pictures of the logged on employees in the Assembly mode are now displayed in round (oval) form.

  • For orders, it can now be displayed whether a corresponding released part data record is available. In the function key configuration it can be set that a key can only be switched on if the associated part data set has been released.

Bugfixes/Changes

  • In pre-releases of the 2018.4 release, the D-buttons for displaying documents from Navision were no longer displayed in the main view of the assembly mode. This problem has been fixed.
  • Under certain circumstances, multiple postings of quantities could occur during order completion in Assembly mode. This problem has been fixed.
  • Sometimes FIT-HI-MES could not be terminated properly. This meant that the FIT-Tomcat service could not be stopped normally but could only be stopped by firing the FIT-Tomcat5.exe process. This has been fixed.
