Setup §

Change classifications are derived from business rules. For example, your company's sales team may need to notify a customer about certain types of changes, or when the change's financial impact exceeds a specified limit.

Commercial organizations may want to show that a document change won't materially affect an existing part because the change (a) releases a new part or (b) is purely clerical. In military environments, Class I and Class II changes may be used instead, and the Clerical member can be deleted or made inactive.
