New and Changed Features
Maintaining Configuration Keys
Now for a configurable item, you can specify up to twenty features that together form a configuration key.
Using Standard Configurations in Configuration Questionnaire
A new tab Standard Configurations is added to Configuration Questionnaire. Standard Configurations are configurations recommended by the manufacturer to make it easier for customers to order configured items. For example, standard configurations can be popularly ordered configurations in the past, or some particular configurations that a marketing campaign wants to promote.
Maintaining Standard Configurations
A new function Standard Configuration Maintenance is added. You can use Standard Configuration Maintenance to get standard configurations shown in the questionnaire. To set an existing configuration to a standard configuration, just select the check box above the configuration ID of the existing configuration.
To use Standard Configuration Maintenance:
1
Select a group using the binocular button on the toolbar.
2
Specify a configurable item in the Configurable Item field; the system displays all available configurations of the configurable item for you to choose.

Browse through all available configurations; you can also use the search capabilities to search for configurations that meet your criteria.
4
Select the check box above a Configuration ID to set the configuration as standard. You can set one or more standard configurations.
