Maintaining Default Values for Characteristics

To reduce the number of entries required to calculate standard values, you can predefine default values for characteristics. These values are proposed during characteristic value assignment but you can change them. If you want to carry out an automatic simulation or standard values calculation then the system accesses these values.

Default values that you define in method maintenance are method-specific. Default values that you define from within formula maintenance or in characteristic maintenance are valid generally.

Proceed as follows to maintain a default value for a characteristic:

You should consider the following when you specify default values for a characteristic:
