Summary

In NBS Create, when you try and add a certain manufacturer through NBS Plus via the ‘Add to Job’ button, the relevant system is added but you get the following error message: ‘Unable to set the Manufacturer clause item’.

CR0002_01

This happens when the system added does not contain a ‘System manufacturer:’ clause item. 

Resolution

Steps to inserting a ‘System manufacturer:’ clause item:
  1. Insert a new clause item under the first available clause item (in this case, under ‘Substrate preparation:’).

  2. Rename the clause item to ‘System manufacturer:’ then right click > Move Clause Item > Move Up.

  3. The new ‘System manufacturer:’ clause item will appear just under the ‘System performance:’ clause item, however there isn’t a drop down menu to select the manufacturer just yet. (This step may not be necessary if you already have a drop down menu to the right of your System manufacturer clause item. If so, skip to step 7).

  4. Insert a new clause item under ‘System manufacturer:’ then right click > Move Clause Item > Increase List Level.

  5. Right click again on the new clause item > Move Clause Item > Decrease List Level.

  6. By doing this, the ‘System manufacturer:’ now has a drop down menu, therefore this new clause item isn’t required anymore. To remove this clause item, right click > Delete Clause Item.

  7. The System manufacturer clause item will now have a drop down menu which you can select the manufacturer, or add the manufacturer from NBS Plus using the Add to Job button.
