Define company standard settings for Combining

In the Company Standards dialog box, you can create default settings that become the company standard settings used in each combining job. If necessary, you can change the settings on a job by job basis.

  1. Click the Maintenance ribbon tab.
  2. On the menu, select Combining > Company Standards.
  3. In the Combining Company Standards dialog box, adjust the following settings according to your needs:
    Option Description

    Job # Increment

    Allows you to select the default option for automatic job numbering. The options are:
    • Increment from Last Job #:

      When you create a new job, Tekla EPM uses the next available job number after the latest job number created.

    • Increment from Largest Job #: Tekla EPM uses the next available job number after the largest job number created.

    • Don't Increment: Automatic job numbering is not used.

    You can modify the job number when you create a new job.

    Mark Input Type

    Allows you to select which format is used when defining mark numbers.

    The Any Input and Any Input - Logical Sort options allows you to use any format when defining marks. The difference between the two options is that the Any Input - Logical Sort sorts the items in a different way.

    Auto-Increment

    When selected, Tekla EPM automatically populates the new mark number with the next largest available mark number when you are adding items in the Combining dialog box.

    Auto-Increment From Last Entered Value

    When selected, Tekla EPM automatically populates the new mark number with the next mark number from the latest added mark number when you are adding items in the Combining dialog box.

    Allow Blank

    When selected, Tekla EPM allows blank mark numbers.

    Allow Duplicate

    When selected, Tekla EPM allows duplicate mark numbers.

    Keep Job Selection Screen Open

    When selected, the Select Combining Job dialog box stays open after a job has been opened. Otherwise, the Select Combining Job dialog box will close when you open a combining job.

    Item Increment

    Sets the auto-increment for item numbers.

    Using the default auto-increment of 10 allows items to be added in the list according to your needs, without having to renumber the other items in the job.

    For example, if items should be initially numbered as 10, 20, 30, ..., the input increment should be set to 10. If auto-increment of item numbers is not necessary, type 1 in the Item Increment field.

    Job # Regular Expression

    Allows the use of regular expressions to enforce a desired format for the job numbers.

  4. Click Save.
The changes you made are saved. You can further modify the company standards by clicking the Input/Display Units, Combining Optimizations, and Suppliers tabs.
