Characteristics in DMS

Hello gurus

I have one class and some characteristic:

Class: Continent

Characteristic Region: values (America, Africa and Europe)

Characteristic Country: values Germany, South Africa, Mexico, USA and Italy

Characteristic Cities: values Veneza, Guadalajara, New York and Frankfurt.

My idea is:

When I select America in characteristic Region, in characteristic Country only Mexico and USA is available and characteristic Cities only Guadalajara and New York.

What's the best solution?

Regards

    Hi,

    To achieve this is very simple & you'll need to use classification with object dependencies.

    You need to create 3 different characteristics.

    1) Region (Z_Region) - with it's values (all the regions)

    2) Country (Z_Country)- with it's values (all the countries)

    3) Cities (Z_Cities)- with it's values (all teh cities)

    Then you need to create object dependencies on all the values for the Country characteristic & the City characteristic

    Country characteristic - the dependency will be a pre-condition against each value in your list

    The formula will look like:

    Value South Africa - Z_Region = 'Africa'

    In other words the value 'South Africa' will appear only when the Region = Africa

    City characteristic - the dependency will be a pre-condition against each value in your list

    The formula will look like:

    Value Johannesburg - Z_Country = 'South Africa'

    In other words the value 'Johannesburg' will appear only when the Country = South Africa

    By doing this you achieve exactly what you want.

    Regards,

    Neil
