Define characteristic groups for the information system

In this step you can create groups of characteristics which you want to use in your information system.

A characteristic group can be any combination of characteristics from one operating concern. You can use a characteristic group when you define a report to reduce the number of characteristics available for selection.


Create the characteristic groups you want to use in the information system.


These characteristic groups are not the same as those created under "Master data". Those characteristic groups serve a different purpose.

For more detailed information on how to work with characteristic groups, see the CO-PA online manual.
