IBM provides you with a variety of fixes: cumulative program temporary fix (PTF) packages, fix groups, High Impact PERvasive (HIPER) fixes, and others.
Each fix has its own purpose.

Single fixes
Single PTFs (fixes) are applied to correct specific reported problems.

Cumulative PTF packages
Cumulative program temporary fix (PTF) packages contain fixes for a given release of the i5/OS operating system. The fixes contained in a cumulative PTF package are for the Licensed Internal Code and most licensed programs that can be installed on that operating system release.

Fix groups
A PTF group or fix group is a name that is used to order and manage a group of logically related PTFs.
