In mean of Structure integrity, the Combination of PQR should not be used like ASME IX flexibility.

SPECIAL NOTE:

ASME IX only! Example of Thickness combination by various PQR to make new WPS (with the same variables of mother PQR, even the CVN).

See the QW 200.4 – Interpretation for more information, Be careful that the PWHT will be required in case of T>38mm (ASME VIII), or T>19 mm (ASME 31.3) 🙂
