Use this form to define rules for selecting configurations that determine correlations between individual configuration groups and item numbers in a bill of materials (BOM).

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.

Tab

Description

Overview tab

If you open this form from:

  • Bills of materials form

    The form will show all BOM lines attached to the BOM version. In this case, you specify the whole relation between different items with different configuration groups. The following example specifies how the items from the two configuration groups must go together:

    Configuration group

    Item number

    Method

    Derived group

    Derived item number

    Cartridges

    Blue cartridge

    Select

    Barrels

    Blue barrel

    Cartridges

    Red cartridge

    Select

    Barrels

    Red barrel

    Cartridges

    Black cartridge

    Select

    Barrels

    Black barrel

  • Lines form

    The form is opened from a specific line with a specific configuration group attached to it. In this case, you only specify the configuration selections that can be made relative to this line.

    For example, when you open the Configuration rules form from the BOM line for Blue cartridge, you specify only the configurations that are enabled with Blue cartridge. To create a rule that configures Blue cartridge with Blue barrel, you have to select the derived group Barrels and select Blue barrel.
