Structural Material Manager Version 12.4 Upgrade

Introduction: This information summarizes the improvements that have been made to the Version 12.4 Structural Material Manager software system.

Expanded Piece Mark Field: The biggest feature-adding change in 12.4 is the fact that the new version can accommodate piece marks of up to 19 characters in length. The previous limit of 9 characters was adequate for many years, but some firms have begun packing extra data into every piece mark thus requiring a longer field.

Windows 7 Performance Enhancements: Although not a visible feature per se, a dramatic change in the Version 12.4 Structural Material Manager upgrade involves Windows 7 performance enhancements. While these under-the-hood changes will increase performance under Windows 7, rest assured that they will in no way hamper a user's experience under Windows 2000, XP or Vista.
