CAC Improvements and Enhancements
To reduce CAC calculation time, the following changes were implemented:
Internal performance improvements
New CAC Chunksize field in User Preferences
New work order status selection in User Preferences
Internal Performance Improvements
Internal performance improvements were made to the CAC calculation function, including reduced message sizes sent to/from the server and internal improvements to the CAC calculation engine.
New CAC Chunksize Field in User Preferences
You can now specify a CAC chunk size in the Component Availability tab of the User Preferences. In the CAC Chunksize field, you specify a number that represents the number of work order component detail records that are sent in each call to the server; see New CAC User Preferences.
Single, large CAC calculation server calls that take more than five minutes can result in timeout problems when running over a wide-area network (WAN) or using the OpenEdge AppServer Internet Adapter. The ability to divide a single large, long-running CAC calculation server call into a number of smaller and shorter server calls shortens the processing time per call and avoids timeout problems.
When you set CAC Chunksize to a non-zero value, this indicates the maximum number of work order component detail records that the system sends in each call to the Appserver.
When you set CAC Chunksize to 0 (zero), chunking is disabled and the system sends all work order component detail records in one call to the Appserver.
New Work Order Status Selection User Preferences
You can now select a particular order status to be included in the CAC calculation in the Component Availability tab of the User Preferences; see New CAC User Preferences.
Selecting an order status reduces the number of work orders for which CAC is calculated, thereby reducing the overall calculation time. You can select from the following statuses:
P(lanned)
F(irm)
B(atch)
E(xploded)
A(llocated)
R(eleased)
The system calculates CAC status for the specified order types only. The system does not calculate orders with a status you did not select and sets the status of unselected orders to a CAC status of No Status.
