Fall 2015 Newsletter

Over the past few months, we’ve seen a number of enhancements to Aligni and have more in progress. A number of these updates have been sponsored by customers through our Bespoke Support. Thank you for your continued interest in making Aligni awesome for all our customers!

Manual Inventory Adjustment Ledger

Parts-Inventory-AdjustRelative-B@2xSometimes there’s a lot going on with inventory: transfers, build reservations, and adjustment batches. Now, when making a manual inventory adjustment to an item, a new ledge is shown to help clarify exactly what changes will be effected.

Inventory Adjustment Batches

Bulk inventory adjustment batches are created from the Inventory Perspective on the home screen by clicking on “Adjust Inventory”. You can use these for all sorts of inventory reconciliation and cycle counting. Even though we just deployed this year, we decided to make some sweeping changes to improve the interface and make way for some additional features later. Now, inventory adjustment batches are done in a manner very similar to inventory transfers so you can store your progress on any pending batch and come back to it later.

Builds Redesign and Performance Improvements

The build interfaces have gotten a major update and are now consistent with most of the Aligni user experience. Along the way, we’ve made some pretty dramatic improvements to performance. With large builds, you should see load and processing times reduced by up to 80%.

Build Deviations

Build-Deviations-Dropdown@2xHot out of development, Build Deviations will greatly improve the way you and your manufacturing manage and track deviations during the build cycle. You can add, remove, and substitute parts of a build during the planning stages and document those changes easily and clearly. Now that deviations can more precisely be handled at build time, we will soon be removing the part alternates management at the BOM level.

Inventory Transfers

The inventory transfers interface has gotten its facelift and now has a “Pull Ticket” feature. Oh, we also added this to builds.

Performance Improvements and Bugs Squashed

As usual, our developers continue to improve performance and close defects. We maintain our stand that bugs need to be first priority for any development and our low defect rate and fast response times are an indicator that we’re doing well in that regard. For all of you that have reported issues, thank you for doing so and helping us get to the bottom of things.
