Auto Value Generator Details

Introduction

Xavor’s Auto Value Generator allows Agile PLM users to automatically modify field contents based on data in other fields. This solution saves users time and reduces errors by automating routine tasks and speeding up the process by:

• Standardizing the description field based on other attributes
• Enhancing the data visibility of quick search
• Defaulting any attribute with data from other attributes
• Automatically creates intelligent part numbers optionally utilizing auto-numbers

Create an intelligent FG number from attributes

Whenever a new Finished Good part is created, it may be required to generate a new item number (i.e. Title Block Number + Page Three Catalog Details). The Auto Value Generator can automate this functionality. Another scenario is to generate the Description of an item by using different attributes of that item thereby standardizing the description field. The Auto Value Generator will generate the value of an attribute based on a predefined sequence of other attributes of the same record.

Trigger Point

This PX can be triggered from Action Menu & Events such as “Save”
