Hopefully, you are using Transaction PMEVC - VC Modelling Environment to maintain your VC Models.
SAP provides updates to the functionality that you may not have implemented yet in your system. Some of these changes will make you more productive and faster in maintaining models. That has to be a good thing.
Below is a long list of OSS Notes that can be applied to your system. If you do not know what an OSS Note is - well it is SAPs way to apply fixes and updates to SAP systems.
In the notes that follow these will allow such things as maintaining classes and characteristics, more drag and drop, see your routings and maintain their dependencies, variant table improvements, using the full width of your monitors etc.
You may have these in place now, but there may be some on the list you may want to get your SAP system people to implement. My list may not be complete but has most of them I think.
