Ready to add a new information requirement? Simply click on “Add new LOIN.” On the creation page, you have the power to specify the details:

Milestone: Specify when the information is needed.
Purpose: Clarify the reason for gathering this information.
Actors: Identify the party responsible for delivery.
Object: Define the specific object for which the information is required.
Group of Objects: Categorize objects for more organized management.
Document Type: Select the required document type based
Properties: choose what properties will be required about the selected object/objects

After selecting an object in the “Add new LOIN” page, you can choose the properties that must be delivered. Here are your options:

Properties Related to Prerequisites: A shortlist of properties that are relevant in the Define data dictionary for your selected combination.

Properties Related to Objects: Properties from the Data Dictionary that are associated with  the selected objects.

All Define Properties: The full list of properties from the Define data dictionary.

Each property comes with its attributes such as Description, Unit, Mappings to classifications, Enumerated values, and more. You can even edit Enumerated Values after selecting a Define property for your information requirement.

To create an Alphanumerical requirement, you need to select an object, at least one property, and at least one of the prerequisites, be it Milestones, Purposes, or Actors. The selected properties will be required for all selected objects.

Need specific documents? Cobuilder Link empowers you to request the type of document that must be delivered.

Here’s how it works:

Specify the type of document that needs to be delivered. You can add comments to provide more clarity to the appointed actor about what’s expected in the document.

Document could be requested at least in combination with an Object or one of the three Milestone, Purpose, or Actor.

Information requirements in Cobuilder Link are organized and grouped by Object, Group of Objects, Milestone, Purpose, and Actor. You don’t need to check if something is already requested, Cobuilder Link offers a convenient way to optimize your information needs:

Duplicate Requirement Alert: Should you inadvertently create requirements that already exist, the system will promptly alert you. It will inform you that a similar requirement is already in place.

Suggested Merge: Cobuilder Link will go a step further by suggesting the merger of these duplicated requirements. This means that the system will seamlessly combine all the newly requested properties and documents with the existing requirement.
