Standard description

To create a new standard description we have to select "Descriptions" from Configuration drop down menu. 



      Create Form

       


      - Note to Description: The name of this standard description

      - Standard Description: The base description value. When selecting this standard description the value of Standard       Description field will be copied to component “Description” field

      - UM / Feature 1: The label of the first feature

      - Format Feature 1: The value of the first feature

      - UM / Feature 2: The label of the second feature

      - Format Feature 2: The value of the second feature

      - UM / Feature 3: The label of the third feature

      - Format Feature 3: The value of the third feature

      - Format Feature Composed: Defines the final description formatting

      Normative Rule: The text placed here will be added at the end of component description


      Format Features:

      Each %s will be replaced with the corrisponding value once the component description will be created.

      %s = no label, only value

      %s %s = label and value

      %s_%s = label_value

      %s / %s = label / value


      Example of standard description:



      Now when creating a new component we can select this standard description:






      Format Feature 1 was set to %s %s, so the final description is DESCRIPTION FEAT1 10



      Format Feature 2 was set to %s_%s, so the final description is DESCRIPTION FEAT1 10 FEAT2_20



      Format Feature 3 was set to %s, so the final description is DESCRIPTION FEAT1 10 FEAT2_20 50




      For a more complex description we can use Normalized features formatting, where the component description will be Standard Description + Format Feature Composed. Each %s in the Format Feature Composed will be replaced with Format Feature 1/2/3.
      If Normative Rule is defined, it will be added at the end of the description.




      So when creating a new component with this standard description and the values below...



      The final description will be DESCRIPTION 2 10__F2_20__F3/30__UNI
