Catalogs (QM-PT-BD-CAT)

Purpose

You use catalogs to manage, uniformly define, and standardize information (for example, defect types, follow-up actions, tasks or characteristic attributes) on a client-wide or plant-wide basis

The catalogs can help you to record and subsequently evaluate qualitative data, and to describe problems.

In the catalogs, you assign each unit of information a unique alphanumeric code and an explanatory text.

Integration

You can:

  • Directly assign catalogs to master inspection characteristics, (that is independently of the inspection method), or assign them using the inspection method.
  • Store information at characteristic level in tasks lists with the help of catalogs
  • Use the catalogs to make it easier to record inspection results, defects, and defect locations during inspection lot processing
  • Make usage decisions during inspection lot completion with the help of catalog 3
  • Use the catalogs to describe defect items, tasks, activities, and causes in quality notifications, maintenance notifications, and service notifications

Features

You can:

  • Define catalog types P through Z inCustomizing Catalog types 0 through 9 and A through P are predefined in the R/3 System. The standard system contains the following catalog types (among others):

  • Create and change code groups in a catalog type
  • Group several codes together into code groups
  • Create selected sets at plant level that contain codes from different catalogs
