Business Scenario:

Here we are creating a Specification type and a property tree with new Value Assignment Type (VAT). The newly created property tree is then assigned to Specification Type.

Detailed configuration steps with screen shots are given below as per Business Requirement.

1. Create Specification Type.

Create a Specification Type to create a new specification.

Copy the standard Specification Type Real_Sub as Real _Sub1. We need to assign the Real_sub1 to the specification category SUBSTANCE.

    Dear John

    very well done. Great job. Go on like that. 🙂 😎

    Please extend your explanations for community to provide step by step process how the settings as shown by you will be “transported” from Dev to Prod and which pitfalls can happen (and there are many !)

    By the way: your documentation contains one small “issue”. Regarding Value Assignment Type “E” you need not to assign an “usage profile”. Any usage profuile used must be present in customizing.

    Please enhance the section of “property tree”. The use of the “Comp” flag is not well understood but it is a very important flag.

    Please make sure that audience understand that in your example only the “new” property tree is available for REAL_SUB1; you can not “switch” to different one.

    If you have some time: The flags:

    • VA Copy Active
    • New VA active
    • Change active

    does have some impact in maintenance in EHS and as in your example the settings done will speed up maintenance. May be you could explain the use of the flags to the audience.

    May be extent your documentation in such a way:

    In CG02 if you click F1 on level of property you can get a “help” to the user. This help is prepared during the set up as shown by you. May be it could be of interest for the audience how this help can be created and maintained
