Editing A Master Key System
When you edit or update a master key system you need as much information as possible. SuperKey 2011tm allows you to associate necessary information with each bitting contained in the master key system. You can enter information for a change key, a row or block master, a page master, a page grouping master and even the top master for the master key system.
As important as this information is you need to view it in a way that makes sense. Below you will find a sampling of the views available. After you have read this page check out the 'Other Features' page.
This is the default view used to edit or update a master key system. Each key bitting is displayed on a single line in the tree. All of the key bittings information is displayed. The architectural numbering and bitting are displayed on the left and the updatable data is on the right.
All of the program operations can be accessed from either the menus or the tool bar. Up to nine master key systems can be loaded at a time.
This is a close-up shot of the architectural numbering along with the bitting information.
Any bittings that fail either the MAC (adjacent cut differential) or the slope test are marked with an appropriate letter - D for differential and S for slope. In addition the color of the bitting changes to warn you not to use it. Even though a bitting is marked as failed or bad you can still use the bitting. It's not a perfect world.
This is the same view as in the picture above with the addition of row and block masters. The tree branches clearly show which bittings are operated by which row and / or block masters.
In this example you can see that the change keys LK-1, LK-2, LK-3, LK-4 and LK-5 are operated by the block master LK-B1.
Block masters LK-B1, LK-B2, LK-B3, LK-B4 and LK-B5 are operated by row master LK-R1.
Moving up the tree the row masters LK-R1, LK-R2, LK-R3, LK-R4 and LK-R5 are operated by the page master.
Just by following the branches on the tree you can quickly identify what masters operate a particular key bitting.
This is an example of the masters view. Like the standard or page view you can see the page masters grouped to show what masters will operate them.
Here page masters LA, LB, LC, LD and LE are operated by the page-block master L1.
When you design a large master key system like a hotel for example you can easily group page or floor masters for house-keeping managers.
This is an example of data entry. To enter or update data you only need to click the field on the key bitting you want to update and start typing. You can use the mouse to move from field to field or simply hit the enter key.
You can search for any data in the master key system. You can search for a sentence, word or part of a word. You can limit your search to a single field or look in every field at the same time.
