A drawing measurement is a type of product configuration element used when products are configured.
A drawing measurement can be numeric or alphanumeric. It may be compared to a product parameter, which is used to specify a product.
Drawing measurements are connected to a product structure header. This means that they can have different values and be of different significance in different product structures. They can also be of a global type, meaning that it can carry information across the product structure. A measurement will then be of the same significance and value throughout the product structure.
The drawing measurement is an independent part of a product structure and can be used for purely informational purposes or in order to determine item number or quantity. It can even be used for storage purposes in order to connect several formulas.
