Working with Selection sets instead of Code Groups

A code group (client level) can have many different entries. A number of 100 codes may be possible. To reduce the number or to structure these codes, selected sets may be build from these code groups. The codes can be chosen from different code groups of a catalog. Selected sets are maintained on plant level.

Especially for catalog types 1 (characteristic attributes) and 3 (usage decision) codes of code groups should be grouped using different aspects. Additionally the valuations “Accept” or “Reject” are allocated to every code of a selected set. Depending on the inspection (incoming inspection, production inspection) the selected sets possess only those codes, that fit the inspection type.

The selected sets of catalog E (defect locations) are created by products. The selected sets of a catalog type can be created or changed using the following menu path:

Logistics -> Quality management -> Quality planning -> Basic data-> Catalog -> Selected set -> Edit (QS51)

The initial screen for maintaining selected sets will be shown. Enter catalog, plant and the selected set you want to change. If you want to list all selected sets of a catalog and plant, enter an asterisk * as selected set.

Press .

An overview on selected sets will be displayed.

Change short description, long text or status of the selected sets.The key of the selected sets cannot be changed. If you want to change this key, you will have to enter a new selected set and to delete the old one. To create new selected sets press . Then the table can be changed. Enter key, description and status of the new selected set (for use it has to be released). You may enter a long text, too. Pay attention to the name convention for selected sets at Continental Teves:

1.-2. digit: QM

3. digit: =

4.-6. digit: 000

7.-8. digit: Number (unrestricted, usually using steps of five or ten)
