SAP PLM Recipe Development – Labeling - Ingredients Label


This blog belongs to a series of blogs regrouped on the SCN page “SAP PLM Recipe Development for Beginners”.

In this chapter, we take a closer look at the ingredient label.

After having created our label set, we navigate to the tab “Label Definition” – “Ingredient Label”.  First we need to define de “Data Origin” – the object (recipe or specification) from which the ingredients data is read. You also have to specify a rating and validity area.

Then you enter a title for your ingredient label.

In the section “ingredient list” you can see how the system lists all ingredients. If you click on the button “generate”, the system creates an list of ingredients in long-text format. You can still edit and do changes.

You have the possibility to maintain various identifiers for your specifications. You can for example use the “NAM PROD” identifier as internal material or product name. You can also add a second identifier (e.g. NAM LABAL) which can then be used for labelling purposes.

If you un-flag “Display”, the ingredients in this line are not displayed any more in the “list of ingredients” which is updated when you press the “Generate Button”.

If a ingredient is composed of many other ingredients (example “Herbs Provence” are composed of pepper, herbs, oregano, …) you can “Explode the Composition”.

If you highlight an ingredient with a composition and if you click “Explode Composition”, all the lower level ingredients from the ingredients composition appear in the listing of ingredients.

With the flag “Display Proportion”, you can make appear the proportion of this ingredient in percent.

Further, you have the possibility to work with “Footnotes”. Footnotes are a selection of phrases which can be added to the list of ingredients.

Finally, you can also add “Marketing Statements” which also consist of phrases, to your ingredients listing.
