Blocks of information

For additional description of nomenclature, collection, components, files, parameters it is possible to fill in the information blocks for each of these elements. It looks like this:

List of available blocks:

Components. This block is available only for collection. Here is the appearance of this block. As you can see from the control buttons it’s possible to perform many operations in this block.

Parameters. This block is used to enter the additional properties to the object if standard properties are not enough. This block can be completed for all objects except of parameters. It looks like this:

All objects have “Files” and “Sketches”, they are always presented together. In the block “Files” their list is managed, in the block “Sketches” the images of bitmap files are displayed. Here you can see how it looks:

“References” – this block contains the references to any resources outside the system, it can be producers catalogs, files located on the user discs (in cases it’s undesirable to upload them to the external network). It’s a good possibility to receive the necessary information rapidly, not wasting time to enter the data to the system.

“Collections” – this block includes the collections connected with the object.

“Nomenclature” – the different connections of the object with other stock items are maintained here. For example, the list of analogues, possible sharing replacements etc.

“Dependencies” (available only for components). This block includes the history of element – what collection it was set from. The block is filled automatically by component generation both in manual and in automatic mode.

“Usage”. This block contains the locations where the object is used. It looks as follows. The block is filled in automatic mode for all objects.

“Rights”. This block includes the list of all users who has the access to the object.

The blocks can be filled automatically based on available information (for example “Sketches”, “Dependencies” and “Usage”) without the possibility to be revised by manual. It can be completed also manually (for example “Parameters”, “Files”, “References” and “Nomenclature”) and by means of some commands with possibility to revise them (for example “Components”, “Collections”, “Dependencies” and “Rights”). How to operate them you can see following the link with block name.
