Create a new commodity code as described below.

  1. Select the group for which you want to create a commodity code.

  2. Select the part for which you want to create a commodity code.

  3. Set the Type to Attribute Based. The attributes from the attached set will be copied into the block below.

  4. Enter a short description in the Short Desc field. This text is automatically copied to the Description field.

  5. Click Save, and go to the lower block.

  6. Manually enter all values with their description or use the LOV, if available, and save the entries.

  7. You can add more attributes manually or enter a set name in the Additional Set field. After selecting the set, click Insert Set. If you create a rule-based commodity code, you cannot add attributes.

  8. Click Build One CC. If the commodity code is rule-based, the commodity code is generated according to the assigned attribute set, the description, and the layout. If it is a free-format commodity code, only the commodity layout is created.

    • You cannot create the same commodity code twice in a project. All attributes and the values indicating the kind of detail and usage for building the commodity code must be unique within the part. Using the same attribute/value combination is not allowed.

    • You cannot use the same attribute more than once within one commodity code.

  9. Click Build Ident to create one ident for the commodity code that has a geometric size of zero and a hyphen in the ident layout.

    The description of the rule-driven commodity code is created by concatenating in sequential order the descriptions of all the attributes used to build this commodity code. If requested, the part information is distributed as part short desc into the commodity code short desc, and part description into commodity code description.

    The layout is created by concatenating attribute name value pairs consisting of all dependent attributes that are defined for building the commodity code or as the commodity code layout. The part information is distributed as part short desc into the commodity code layout short, and part description into commodity code layout long. The part information is always first in the layout string and cannot be suppressed.
