  14. 14. Item Characteristic Classifications(Sachmerkmalleiste)  Description:  Provides generic classification to Part items based on a hierarchical class structure. (with own ItemType)  Characteristics rows are added to the Part item according to the assigned classification. Users can then enter values for each row. This is an extension to standard item properties.  A search for items by classification and characteristic values (of type text, number, or list) is added. Wildcard “*” for text values and range conditions (>, <, >=,<=,-) for number values are supported.  The solutions adds this feature to the standard item type “Part”. It could be extended to be applied to any item type, however.  Benefits  Classification of „Items“ with technical charactersitics (parameters).  (Parametric) Search for „Items“ by combination of characteristic values.  Assignment of „multiple“ Classification schemes (trees) to one „Item“ could be configured.Copyright © 2012 Aras.

  18. 18. Life Cycle Based Propertiesand Form Fields Description:  It is common that properties defined by ItemType should also be checked as required properties based on a Life Cycle state.  It is also common that visibility and disabled status of data fields (bound to properties) on a form can be controlled by Life Cylce State and/or defined Identities (User Groups).  Rather than writing custom logic for the above behavior, a generic logic can be introduced to read additional property configurations.  For this the data model of „Property“ and „Life Cycle Transition“ was extended.  The generic „Validation“ logic can then be used on pre-Transition events on Life Cycle Maps Benefits  Drastically reduces custom logic for property validations. Validations are configured vs. Coded in custom methods.Copyright © 2012 Aras. All Rights Reserved. Slide 18

  24. 24. Document Collectionsand Hierarchies  Description:  Adds new Item Type “Document Collection” with relationship “Document Hierarchy” to allow hierarchical grouping of “standard” documents.  Much like Bills Of Materials, Document Hierarchies are versionable and operate on a life cycle (Preliminary->Released->Obsolete).  „Dummy“ TOC Item Types can be used to publish a “Document Collection” as “Hand Book” to the TOC. (such as a „Quality Handbook“ or an „Operations Manual“ or more). The package includes the example for a „Quality Handbook“.  Owners and CO-Owners can be defined for „Document Collections“ and „Hierarchy Nodes“. Manual release of the full structure is allowed for Owners. As well as manual revisioning.  Linked Documents must still follow their own release and revisioning process.  If accessed from TOC ItemTypes, then effectivity of latest released “Document Collection” linking to latest released “Documents” is applied.  Benefits:  Extension to manage standard “Documents” in one or more groups with separate access control.  Publishing “Access” to latest released versions of “Document Collections” while maintaining newer versions by “Owners”.Copyright © 2012 Aras.
