"Search" and "Create" dialogues should be consolidated

"Search" and "Create" dialogues should be consolidated

Situation:

  • When classification is used - the user should search for existing objects instead of creating new objects
  • Example:
    • User wants to create a Bolt: Hexagon-Head, diameter x length y
    • User should use the new WT11 classification search like:
      • Head: Hexagon
      • Diameter: 8 mm (Available: 4 - 20mm)
      • Length: 25 mm (Available: 10 - 100mm)
    • The system should respond the available objects

UP TO HERE => CURRENT FUNCTIONALITY!

    • Now there should be a "Create Part" option, which automatically re-uses the inserted values for the classification of the new part

Why is this important?

  • In systems with classification users should be trained to search first and create if nothing has bee found
  • In this case - the effort for the user should be small to reuse the inserted information - to keep the acceptance of the functionality high
  • this is a standard part creation process

This is a huge improvement for re-using parts. Instead of forcing the designer to search for existing parts before creating a new part, he would find a matching part with no extra effort. Increases efficiency, user acceptance and data quality in one step. Very useful!
