5.13.3.2. Classification (By Categories) - (By Countries) - (By Alphabet)

[Note] Note

Each catalog has to be classified by category, alphabet and distribution country.

The classifications By Categories and By Alphabet are only displayed on catalog level.

All suitable categories have to be chosen – so the catalog will appear on the right place in the end media and installation dialog.

  • The alphabet classification must always be set up, but is especially useful if the supplier name is composed by several parts, e.g. „Schneider Electric Motion“ – in this case the letters S, E and M must be classified, so that the catalog can be found in correct letter group. The

  • The country classification equals the manufacturing divisions equals the manufacturing divisions of the catalog supplier which is also shown at many places in CADENAS end media (e.g. PARTcommunity maps / RFQ Feature). The objective is to provide the user an effective product procurement near to his own location.

    Also see Section 5.8.2.1.15.14, “ Manage address data ”.

  • The category classification acts as another filter for searching.

Preconditions:

  1. In the catalog main folder, the file categories.prj, has to be created.

    [Note] Note

    Don't copy the categories.prj from other catalogs, but absolutely create it via template.

    1. On catalog root folder, call the context menu command New project.

      -> The same named dialog box is opened.

    2. Select Template for Categories Project and confirm with OK.[52]

      -> The project is automatically created with the needed files (translation file and png file for company logo).

  2. Following three class systems have to be installed (via PARTadmin):

    • By Categories

    • By Countries

    • By Alphabet

    The installation happens in PARTadmin under Section 1.3.4.1, “ Catalog update Online ” in PARTsolutions / PARTcommunity4Enterprise - Administration Manual.
