Size range is used to define sample request sizes and create a measurement chart.
If you only have one size, you still need to create a size range to be able to make a sample request.
An overview of your size range will be available in the Admin section, under the option 'Sizes'.

1) Click the 'Add size range' button to create a size range
2) In the new table row, type in the name of your size range and the respective sizes - extra boxes will appear if you add more than 6 size steps
You cannot add or delete size steps to an existing size range at a later stage. Therefore, make sure you have all the sizes you need in different size ranges. Ex. XS-XL and XS-L are two different size ranges, so both need to be created.
3) Decide if the new size you are adding will be your Default Size Range.
You can only have one.
4) Click the green save icon to save.
Once you have saved your Size range you can add Size IDs to every size in the Size Range.
Just click on "Settings" button to the right of the Size Range.
This will show you a pop-up with all the sizes in this size range.
Just add the ID for each Size.
Once you are done click on the "OK" button.
Once you have saved a Size Range you can set if there should be a Default grading size. (This can also be done for old Size Ranges)
Click on the "Settings" button.
Select the Size you need to be the Default Grading size.
And click on OK
WORKING WITH GRADING GROUPS
You can set up Grading Groups for each Size Range.
You create the group on the go.
Place your cursor in the Grading Group field where you need to add a group name.
- If the name you are typing is already created you will see it in the list where you can select it
- If not - then you will see "Add....." and you can click on that and the new group name will be added to the list and can be used for other sizes in that Size Range
You can at any time edit the Grading Groups.
Remember - the values in the drop down are Size Range specific and will not be avilable in other Size Ranges
WORKING WITH ADVANCED GRADING (PRO feature)
With Advanced Grading, you can set up complex grading relationships - instead of just using linear grading.
This can be a help for you if you work with products that have multiple sizes in the same size.
There are some basic rules you need to keep in mind:
- If a Size Range is already used - it is not possible to activate Advanced Grading
- If a Size range is already used and the Advanced Grading is activated - it is not possible to turn off the Advanced Grading
ACTIVATE ADVANCED GRADING
When you open the "Settings" pop-up - you can activate the Advanced Gradings by sliding the slider to the right.
You will now get the extra options that belong to the Advanced Grading.
With the Grade Relation, you can define how the single sizes should relate to each other.
You should start by setting the "Grading Size"
You will notice that both "Grade relation" and "Grade sign" automatically adjust to the grading size.
Now you are ready to build your relationships between the single grades.
In the "Grade Relation" column you can for each size set relation to another size.
If you change the Grading Size after you have set the "Grade Relation" these will be cleared.
Please be careful that you do not setup circular relationships. Delogue PLM will warn you if you try to save.
The "Grading Sign" is the second part of how sizes should relate to each other.
Default sizes that are lower than the Grading Size will be "minus" and bigger than the Grading Size will be "plus".
But you can change that so that the Grading Sign fits with the Grade relation and you get the right relation between sizes.
RENAMING A SIZE RANGE
You can change the name of your size ranges whenever necessary. Simply mouse over the size range name and click the blue edit icon - or double-click on the table row.
To do so, select the size range you want to deactivate and uncheck the option 'ACTIVE'.
Remember to save your changes.
If a Size range is not in use anywhere - you can delete it.
Just mouse-over on the Size range in question and click on the Delete icon.
Confirm that you want to delete it.
It is possible to set up which Unit you want as a default unit when you create measurement charts.
Just click on the drop-down and select the one you need. It will be saved once you have selected it and will ONLY influence new Measurement charts.
If you are going to make integration with an ERP provider, please make sure that the size ranges have the same structure as in the ERP.
Use the ID to match the name in the ERP.
As you cannot add sizes to a size range, we recommend that you make the size range as broad as possible, and then deactivate sizes on each style.
