After new configuration of a variant spec, variant parts in substructures should be created within a new version instead of creating with a new number.

After new configuration of a variant spec, variant parts in substructures should be created within a new version instead of creating with a new number.

@ all

To work with variants, we need an additional feature in Windchill.

1. Step:

During first configuration, variant parts are produced for all configured nodes.

2. Step:

The current versions structure is passed in an ERP system.

3.Step:

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)

PTC-Call 12621627:

"Reconfigure" Variant Specification --> "Update Module Variant" is not iterating substructure variant parts, but creating new variant parts in Windchill PDMLink 10.1 M040.
