To work with variants, we need an additional feature in Windchill.
During first configuration, variant parts are produced for all configured nodes.
The current versions structure is passed in an ERP system.
After a change, while reconfiguring the variant Specification using the option Update Module Variant, the top level variant and all sub levels variant should be updated (iterating)
"Reconfigure" Variant Specification --> "Update Module Variant" is not iterating substructure variant parts, but creating new variant parts in Windchill PDMLink 10.1 M040.
