Value Types

You define a value type for the method result. The value type uses the parameter ID assignment to determine:

So that the system can copy the calculated value into a standard value in the routing, the standard value must be defined using the standard value key in the work center (see Work Center and Routing). The standard value is a parameter identified by the parameter ID.

In work center Customizing a dimension is assigned to the parameter ID. In CAPP Customizing you can assign the value type to a parameter ID, that means to the standard value into which the method result is to be copied.

In the method, the value type and the unit of the method result are defined. The assigned parameter ID and the method result must have the same dimension.

Using CAPP Customizing you can assign parameter IDs with the following origin to a value type:
