A Fix-Pack is the name given to the i-PLM installation files for Wintop. This may be the full installation package, or, smaller update files that are installed on top of the existing installation. They are released by the JLR i-PLM team after a period of testing and then distributed by Majenta via the MX tool. Release cadence is set by the i-PLM team.
JLR i-PLM supplier support includes a single MX licence for each supplier site. MX has been specifically developed to enable engineers to share large data sets with external users and remote workers.

Please note that the MX licence provided to JLR suppliers as part of their i-PLM support agreement can only be used to transact JLR i-PLM Fix pack data. Should you wish to use MX for your own data exchange requirements then please contact our team.
