Modules PROCESS_STEP, DATA_ORGANIZATION

Submodule PATCHED_DIMENSION

Meaning, type, and size of CERA Core 2.5 and CERA Modules' table attributes

Required attributes are marked with an asterisk; no NULL values should occur in any CERA field (neutral items are in the selection lists or are defaulted, in case meanigful input can not be given, e.g., "n/a" for not available or not applicable information).

 

Tables are divided into the CERA Core blocks and the CERA Modules, marked as "entities E" (except LOVs), "lists of values L" (LOVs), and "relations R". For the LOVs the default values "not filled" and "n/a" are not displayed. The basic sets of values are to be understood as suggestion.
