Allow recursive BOM in Windchill - Warning instead of Veto

Allow recursive BOM in Windchill - Warning instead of Veto

In some Manufacturing or Customer Service BOM use cases, need to create some recursive BOMs.

For example, retrofit of an existing Part

This Part can then be added under herself or under one of her sublevels.

Today Windchill (PSB or MPMLink ) controls that a recursive link is not created in the BOM. But this control can be easily workaround. In fact only loop link on himself is forbiden (since 9.1)

enhancement request: Create an Org preference, to be able to disable this control. or at least to change this popup window as a Warning instead of a veto.

Recursive BOMs should be controled in downstream chain:

-the PSB  or where used table already stop the BOM explosion

-Cognos BOM reports

-Colelctors

- what about other uses cases  ? ESI ,  effectivities propagation , etc ...

example in PSB 10.2
