This document explains how you define the effectivity for different components in a configuration. The effectivity limits the possibility to install components in a configuration. This is a convenient feature that lets you handle different versions of the same model and different modifications.
Use this instruction when you need to limit the possibility to install a component to certain models.
A component may only be installed in a configuration position if it meets the criteria defined in the effectivity.
Effectivity can be defined from the following criteria:
The file with information about component effectivity (MCFMTE) is updated.
Use the limitation to prevent unapproved parts from being installed in a configuration in 'As-Built Structure. Update Removal/Inst' (MOS125).
Components must be connected to a configuration in 'Position. Connect Components' (MOS450).
Start 'Position. Connect Components' (MOS450/B).
Select the model or site for which you wish to define effectivity.
Select the appropriate sorting order.
The recommended alternatives are: 1-'Model/site', 2-'Position', 3-'Component ID'.
On the B-panel, select option 14='Effectivity' for the configuration position for which you wish to define effectivity.
Panel (MOS454/B) is activated.
On the B-panel, specify how you will define the effectivity.
Specify the value from which the effectivity is valid. Select 'New Record'.
If effectivity code 1 is chosen, only serial numbers may be used in the effectivity definition. The serial numbers that will be checked are those found for the item in (MMS240).
If effectivity code 2 is selected, only effectivity codes may be used in the effectivity definition. The effectivity codes that will be checked are those found in (MOS250).
On the E-panel, specify the value to which the effectivity is valid. Press Enter.
Repeat steps 4 to 7 for all configuration positions concerned.
