The specification type is used to categorize and organize the specifications. The specification types can be used for any kind of organizing; for example, based on companies department, plant types, main specification material, media, and other information.
Specification types are defined in Screen S.50.02. Each specification type is assigned to a specification rule. At least one rule must exist before a specification type can be created.
If the specification copy function is used, the specification type structure has to be defined. In S.50.05 Specification copy, only those specifications that are possible copy sources are shown in the second block, which is assigned to the spec type of the spec defined as a destination in the first block. If no spec type exists in the second block of this screen, the specification copy function is not available within this specification type.
