The release of CMPIC R6.10 (and R6.10.1) introduces a number of enhancements:
Look and Feel
The overall design of CMPIC has been adjusted to make use of fonts, colours and layouts that are more in keeping with GUIs in common use, and providing a more streamlined user experience, whilst taking care not to impact too directly on current users. A small sub-set of screens were affected in these releases, mainly to cater for UOM changes (see below).
Units of Measure & Tokens
Units of measure (UOM) are important to retain consistency within CMPIC. Where a value does not inherently indicate a UOM, this is now shown as part of the boilerplate text, leaving no room for doubt. Projects are now designated as Metric or Imperial, and UOM values are indicated suitably. This is all managed in collaboration with Tokens, to ensure flexibility.
The introduction of multi-tier segments permit a greater management of cable routing, without extra workload for the user.
Flexible Work Packages
We have added extra flexibility to our Production module to permit cables to be grouped in Work Packages using a greater number of criteria. This also permits greater complexity of grouping, where needed.
