All Applications - Overlap Validation

All Applications - Overlap Validation

For more information on All Applications, see Overview.

Overlap Validation solves application conflicts within a product. Duplicate Validation solves application conflicts between products.

When no subconfiguration is chosen for application entries in ACESPDM assumes ALL subconfigurations are applied (submodel, region, Liter, CC, cylinder, etc.)

This means an application entry with no submodel selected, for instance, will implicitly include all submodels. This conflicts with any other application entries a product might have where a submodel is specified. Overlap Validation allows you to find and solve these application conflicts.

  1. Select Overlap Validation from the dropdown and click on Start Validation.


  2. You can search for specific products or add a filter. Click Update Validation after changing the filter.
  3. The highlighted text indicates Overlapping. In this case, King Ranch is displayed here because that is the submodel selected in the other application entry for that product. Hover over the info symbol for more information.
  4. Click the edit icon to resolve the conflict.



      5. This can be accomplished by adding a submodel for the application entry with no submodel selected or deleting one or more of the application entries.
      6. Click Save when you are done.



      7. Move the scroll bar to the right to see more Overlap Validations.



Application entries can also be deleted in the All Products - Application Segment.
