Material Class - Creating new Sub Tabs for Different kinds of Characteristics

I have a question regarding classification view in Material Master :

There is a custom Class "Z8C_MATERIAL_CLASS" of class type "001" material class.

I know that when you usually add characteristics in material class they are listed as a single list in "General" tab in classification view of material master.

But, for this class "Z8C_MATERIAL_CLASS" there are sub-tabs listed in material classification view with characteristics :

Example :

Tab 1 : "GENERAL", Tab2 : " LABELLING", Tab5 : "Tech SVCS"

The characteristics are listed in different tabs as needed.

Can someone help me with how are the sub tabs "LABELLING" created ?

When I copied the class "Z8C_MATERIAL_CLASS" to a test material class and used it the tabs did not appear.

Thanks a lot for your help. I have attached the screenshot below :

    Just stay in that screen in Change Mode.

    Then choose from menu Value Assignment > Characteristic groupings > Create

    Enter a name for your new group and decide if you want tabs of pushbuttons.

    Click then the execution clock.

    Next screen click Characteristics button and select the characteristics you want in your new group.

    then save
