    Fixes for AIM 3.0.2 and AIM SSD 3.0.2
    AIM now correctly references the shipper—not the pre-shipper—when the system creates a pick task while converting a shipper to a pre-shipper in Pre-Shipper/Shipper Workbench (7.9.2). AIM now correctly displays the shipper in Warehouse Transaction Inquiry (80.9.1).
    The system now creates multiple references using AIM upon receipt of serialized items in the following programs:
    Purchase Order Receipts (5.13.1)
    Work Order Receipt (16.11)
    Work Order Receipt Backflush (16.12)
    Work Order Operation Backflush (16.19)
    Receipts-Unplanned (3.9)
    Logistic Palletization/Transfer (80.17.17) no longer generates an extra pallet; it now generates the correct number of pallets.
    Also, the program now checks the status of inventory transactions and based on the Overissue field in Inventory Status Code Maintenance (1.1.1) determines the overissue policy applied to a corresponding inventory transfer.
    AIM now correctly updates the Storage Location Group (SLocGp) Description field in Storage Location Group Maintenance (80.3.1) with the correct value when you press Go.
    Sample Inspection Maintenance (80.22.1) now updates the status of the source location. This is the inspection location for items that have not passed inspection.
    The setting of the Allow Task Switching field in Work Location Group Maintenance (80.3.9) no longer conflicts with the ability to set several AIM destination location fields. Previously, if you set Allow Task Switching to Yes, you could not change the value of the destination location. Also, the Work Location Group Maintenance (80.1.1) setting of Allow Task Switching now correctly overrides the Warehouse Maintenance (80.1.24) and the Warehouse Control File Maintenance (80.1.24) setting of the Allow Task Switching field.
    AIM inspections now create one transaction (INSPH) for one sample entering the inspection location when staff perform a sample inspection on multiple pallets in Sample Inspection Maintenance (80.22.1). This lets AIM now properly release the sample to the original location and create the correct transaction with the correct status. Previously, only the inventory status of the last pallet was correct.
    AIM now checks the Allow field in Customer-Item Status Maint (80.4.17) for sales order shortage (SHRT-SO) inventory transactions; previously, it only checked the Allow field for a sales order pick (PICK-SO) inventory transaction.
    Picked quantities are no longer wrong when you confirm a transaction more than one time—for example, when you change the lot—in Movement Conf. Workbench (80.4.4). The Input Matches No Record message no longer displays.
    AIM now splits the quantity received in Purchase Order Receipt (5.1.13) into the correct number of pallets based on the UM conversion when you specify to receive all.
    Allocation is now correct when you create bulk pick orders in Bulk Picking Approval (80.12.12) when detail allocations without tasks exist.
    The system now deletes AIM tasks when you confirm a shipper, then delete the shipper.
    The Generate Hold field now works when set to Yes in Movement Conf. by Order (80.8.3).
    Picked and allocated quantities are no longer wrong in a sales order pick transaction (PICK-SO) when batch picking. When AIM creates a batch picking transaction with the To Reference different from the Reference, AIM now correctly updates the Location Allocation Detail (lad_det) table and the ASN/BOL/Shipper Master (abs_mstr) table.
    You can now correctly print more than one identification label when you receive items if you set Print ID to Yes and ID Quantity to more than 1 in Item-Warehouse Maintenance (80.4.11).
    You can now enter a location size quantity larger than 99999 when you specify the UM as R (Reference) in Location Maintenance ( The quantity now displays correctly on reports.
    The system now considers the inspection lead time when you:
    Set Inspec Req to No in Purchase Order Maintenance (5.7).
    Set the Inspect field to Yes in Item Master Maintenance (1.4.1).
    Specify an inspection lead time in the Ins LT field in Item Master Maintenance (1.4.1).
    Also, the system now uses the location you specify in the warehouse master list in AIM rather than the location you specify in Purchasing Control (5.24) for the purchase order when you specify inspection lead time.
    AIM no longer cancels transactions when you close a work order in Work Order Maintenance (16.1) and Work Order Receipt (16.11). Now, after you receive the work order that creates the transactions, you can close the work order and AIM does not cancel the pending transactions.
    The system now correctly completes transactions and correctly updates the pre-shipper/shipper when warehouse staff batch pick less than the expected quantity to two or more different containers.
    Also, the system now correctly checks the internal routing for more steps when warehouse staff batch pick less than the expected quantity. You can now correctly define the movement as an internal routing with three steps in Internal Routing Maintenance (80.2.5). So, if staff pick less than the expected quantity, the Completion Option in Warehouse Maintenance (80.1.1) is set to an option that does not close tasks, and there is a three-step internal routing defined, AIM correctly creates new tasks for the remaining items to be picked.
    AIM now correctly updates inventory and correctly creates recounts when the quantity is out of the range of tolerance during an RF Location Audit (1.4).
    You can now reprint from the RF Reprint option (2.2) when you have either not-performed transactions (transD) or already-performed transactions (transH). Occasionally, users do not want to create put-away tasks when they receive items. They create transactions and put away items using RF on-the-fly transfers. They may still want to create labels for pallets when they receive, though. To do this, they create a routing from Receiving to Receiving to avoid creating transactions. Without transactions, the system previously would not let them print the labels from the RF Reprint option.
    The system now correctly updates allocated quantities and location information in the pre-shipper when multi-box picking during batch picking,
    AIM no longer creates put-away (PA) transactions with decimal quantities when several lots are needed for replenishment. AIM now rounds decimals and creates integer quantities in the replenishment.
    AIM no longer displays a Progress error when receiving lot-controlled items in Purchase Order Receipts (5.13.1) when both Multi Entry and Receive All are set to Yes. Also, the system now displays the correct pop-up frame when Chg Attribute is set to Yes in Purchase Order Receipts and you are receiving lot-controlled items.
    AIM no longer incorrectly displays negative quantities in the CONSO(LIDATE) column in Order Detail Status Inquiry (80.15.9).
    AIM now checks whether a storage location group (SLG) can receive items or issue inventory before transferring items and creating transactions. Warehouse staff cannot issue items in an SLG if Allow Issues is set to No and cannot receive items if Allow Receipts is set to No in Storage Location Maintenance (80.3.1).
    AIM now checks whether a multi-item pallet contains allocated items, and if yes, AIM no longer lets warehouse staff transfer the pallet.
    In Work Order Operation Backflush (16.19) when backflushing for quantities that span more than one pallet, the system now correctly displays multi-entry screens.
    AIM now checks whether stock is consigned in Transfer Single Item (80.17.4). If stock is consigned, you cannot change site, lot/serial, or reference details for consigned stock. This is consistent with the way other MFG/PRO functions manage consigned stock.
    When reconciling drafts in Draft Bank Reconciliation (, the system no longer resets the Multi Entry field to No if previously set to Yes when AIM is active.
