Customer classification - use class type 011 or copy?

Hi - We have a requirement for some customers to have additional information stored w/them and are planning on using the Classification system.

We have already created and are using one class under class type 011 for a different purpose / different set of data.

I know I can create a new class under existing/standard class type 011; however I am wondering if there is any benefit to creating a new class type, for example, Z11 by copying 011 and creating my new class under type Z11?

I'm asking because I have seen, in the case of material, multiple "Z" class types for further describing materials, each with one class instead of multiple classes under standard class types.

Thank you - Matt

    dear Matt,

    do you really need to create a new class type?

    look, before to proceed take into account that class type determines the following:

    which object types you can assign to a class

    which class maintenance functions you can process

    whether you can classify objects in more than one class

    which class statuses, organizational areas, and text types are supported in class maintenance functions

    whether you can use engineering change management for classification

    which filter functions you can use to restrict the search result

    good luck!
