New Product File Record Flag

We’ve added a new flag to the product file record to indicate that an item is “oversize”.  Typically, an item is considered oversize by a package carrier when certain dimensions exceed a specific value.  For example, the designation for a UPS package whose length plus girth [(2 x width) + (2 x height)] combined exceeds 130 inches (330cm), but does not exceed the maximum UPS size of 165 inches (419cm).

The new flag can be maintained in the Product File Editor, 20/30/70 from the main CODIS menu.

Change line #76 to “Yes” to turn the flag on.  The oversize flag will be passed in the detail message to the manifest system as well.
