Urgent Service notes

  • DNC Connect only supports the actual NX versions who are under maintenance from Siemens.
  • For customers who want to update on the Teamcenter 11.3 version or higher: From TC 11.3 and on, a new license verification will be done upon the creation of manufacturing objects like MEProcess, MEOP, MEWorkArea and their sub-types (including custom types). This check will be done on server side per Teamcenter policy and to ensure license verification. It will use two new feature keys: 1) mfg_planning_lite for verifying MEProcess, MEOP and their sub-types 2) mfg_plant_author for verifying MEWorkArea and its sub-types.

This new license check will be done in addition to other license verification that exists today. If you don't find them in your Teamcenter 11.3 or higher license key please get in contact with Siemens PLM.


Shop Floor Connect /DNC Connect / 3rd Party Integration / API

Enhancements

  • SFC_RequestSFCWorkpackage_20172 loads data using Manufacturing Context if requested item revision is MEOPRevision.
  • Configuration of login credentials for SFCCacheManager moved from SFC-CacheManager.properties into SFCAdmin webapp. Data is stored now in internal ConfigDB.
  • ActiveDNC: The import of local files function is added to the ActiveDNC.
  • ActiveDNC: Use of PLMVisWeb to show JT files. Currently only available if

 

SFC-Server is installed on Windows platform.

Bugfixes/Changes

  • MI Administration: The list of workplaces which can be assigned to a MI contains now only those workplaces not already assigned to an other workplace.
  • If property 'nc_tool_number' of a MENCToolActivity is not set, the value 'UNDEFINED' is set in the generated SFCWorkpackage. With this modification external systems (like SFI) can differ between an unset property (='UNDEFINED'), an empty property (='') or a set value (='value').
  • SFC_Logout_20141 always returned false although the logout was successful. This issue is fixed.
  • ActiveDNC: Added Button to stop a current running transfer.
  • Update bundled Java (Windows platform only) to OpenJDK 8u192.

 

MI-Server

Bugfixes/Changes

  • Fixed an issue where sending a file to a WuT COM Server ends in a "unable to create new native thread" error message when network connection to COM Server is broken.
  • When the service is terminated, the system first checks if Shop Floor Connect can be reached. If not, the logoff is skipped. With this change the service terminates faster if Shop Floor Connect is not reachable.
  • Fixed an issue where "DeleteFileOnMachineAfterImport" in combination with "CompressDirForDNCType" did not delete subfolders inside the selected folder after an upload.
  • Certified with OpenJDK 8u192 32bit on Windows platforms (32/64bit).
  • Update Windows service wrapper from version 1.0.15 to 1.1 (Apache Commons Daemon).
