  19. 19. 19 We can define unlimited number of UDP’s to be associated to each C3 Item. UDP are common to all C3 Items but we can define specific UDP to be applied only to a specific Work Class We can define the format for each UDP (Number, Date, Text) UDP can be exported from one project and imported in another project
