2. After you clarify this, organize and create the catalogs you need.
a) Define the catalogs in a directory for catalog types.
With the help of the predefined catalogs, you can define the catalog profiles for the individual Q-notification types later.
b) Maintain the contents of the catalogs.
Refer to the chapter Quality Planning -> Basic Data -> Catalog for detailed information about the organization of the catalogs.

Further notes

For the 'defect type' and 'defect location' fields in the Q-notification items, the system uses the keywords from the corresponding catalog types as field descriptions.
The field descriptions in the defect records are predefined.
