Defining and Analysing Products (PL2)
This software helps you to create or update your:
- Product Breakdown Structure (PBS)
- Product Description
- Product Flow Diagram (PFD)
The following capabilities help you manage this project information:
|Identify or Insert a product||Insert
a Product in a Product Breakdown Structure, Product
Checklist or Product Flow Diagram. Each
product is only defined once within this product.
Every product has a unique position on the Product Breakdown Structure (PBS).
When products are inserted on the PBS or product checklist, they are automatically inserted on the PFD.
|Re-position a Product within the PBS||Products can be moved within the PBS. A product can be re-linked to another product within the PBS or moved up or down on the product checklist.|
|Delete a Product||A product can be deleted from a PBS, and PFD. When a product is deleted, it will be removed from the PBS, PFD, and product checklist as well as the project activities.|
|Change the name of a product||Changing the name of a product can be done from the PBS, PFD, Product Description, Product Checklist, and Project Activities. All places where the new name should be used will be updated.|
|Specify the Type of Product||After a product has been created, the correct type of product can be set. For example, a product may be an external product or a type of intermediate product. These types of products require special processing. See Product Types.|
|Enter a Product Description||Enter a product description for a product.|
|Save a PBS or PFD to a file||Save a PBS or PFD to a file so other applications can use the pictures. NOTE: to obtain an EMF image, create a MS Word document and copy and paste the image from the document.|
|Generate a Product Description Document||Generate a product description document that consists of the PBS, PFD, and Product Descriptions for the project.|
