KM - Classification/Taxonomies Advice Needed

Postby elliott740 » Mon Jun 27, 2011 12:24 pm

We are currently using Content Management, Classification, Taxonomies & Taxonomy Query Builder to organize our documents within the SAP Portal. We then use KM Navigation iViews and point to the index for the taxonomy folders and everything is working great but we have found a design flaw and need some advice.

We have the following type of structure:
Bill of Material (taxonomy folder)
...Office Products (taxonomy folder)
......Staplers (taxonomy folder)
.........E304.xls (actual bill of material spreadsheet for this specific SKU)
.........E308.xls (actual bill of material spreadsheet for this specific SKU)
......Sissors (taxonomy folder)
.........E410.xls (actual bill of material spreadsheet for this specific SKU)
Quality Inspections (taxonomy folder)
...Office Products (taxonomy folder)
......Staplers.xls (actual QC inspection instructions for all SKU's within product family)
......Sissors.xls (actual QC inspection instructions for all SKU's within product family)

From an iView perspective, everything displays perfectly and the user can drill into any of these folders and see the contents, works great. Now comes the problem that I have NO SOLUTION for, please help!!!

They want to use the TREX search box and enter E304 and they want the results to return the following:
......E304.xls
......Staplers.xls

It will find the first document (E304.xls) since we get a hit in the filename but how do I get the Inspection document (Staplers.xls) to show up? The Quality inspections are for all SKU's within that product family. How do we tie the product family documents back to individual SKUs so we get a hit via the search engine? Does this present a maintenance nightmare? They did not like the idea of having to enter the literal text of "E304" and "E308" within the Quality Inspection document because then everytime a new part is created or deleted someone has to remember to manually update that document.

Does anyone have any advice on how to handle this type of circumstance? We can't be the only ones with this type of situation.

Thanks,

Tom
