Filtering at spec item level is very similar to the header filter method. The primary difference occurs with items of more than one size.
To explain the difference, the same example as above is used. The screen shot below shows what happens with the idents for the eccentric reducer if the same filter table is assigned to the spec item level.
To filter the eccentric reducer on spec item level, the filter table must be created as shown in the next screen shot.
The result of assigning this filter table assigned to the spec item is shown in the screen shot below.
The first four input fields are the basis for the filter. The filter only returns the exact matches.
The advantage for this process is the user can influence the filter results directly. For example, this method can be used if the prices for standard reducers are much lower than the prices for reducers with different schedule ends.
The disadvantage is that this process requires a bit more work.
