In the past, when you processed inspection lots containing batch materials, you could change the batch status manually while making the usage decision.
As of Release 4.0A, you can store a proposal for a batch status change in the catalog for the usage decision. As a result, you no longer have to trigger the batch status change manually. The manual function, however, is still available.
As a result of this new function, you can also trigger a batch status change when the system makes an automatic usage decision.
