Create Version for a Product Structure

This document explains how to create versions of product structures.

The product structure class assigned to each product structure determines if the versions are applicable to manufacturing processes. All class types, other than '00' (Discrete), are used for the purpose of process manufacturing.

Versions of a product structure can be only contiguous and their To and From dates cannot overlap.
