Problem

The SAP PLM 7 WebUI Product Structure Management (PSM) application offers a very generic data model, but no generic approach to customer specific attributes. The SAP classification system with characteristics values can be used, but it does not offer enough flexibility for most customer requirements such as a role-based display of attributes, a specific view layout showing and hiding attributes, or having flexible mandatory attributes.

Our solution offers a very generic approach that fulfills all requirements when it comes to custom attribute handling in the PSM environment for the technical objects Node, Relations and Variants (iPPE / PSM objects).
