When creating a gathering WTPart in design view, in the upper assembly manufacturing view, how do we assign line numbers for the rolled up sub-components of the gathering parts in the upper assembly in manufacturing view
The sub components of the gathering WTParts (design view) should be moved up one level. The single level BOM report of the manufacturing view shows the right results of items and quantity and the gathering WTPart is remove/filtered off the list of items. This should be exactly in the list of items displayed in the usage tab of the Manufacturing WTPart view. Similar to design view structure usage tab, the table in the manufacturing view has to be modifiable from a manufacturing perspective for all the field of the table view.
What every you get in the single bom report for the manufacturing view of the part should be same as the items in the list of the usage tab. So, adding line numbers, QTY and so forth in the Uses Tab should be in direct relation to the single BOM report of the manufacturing view. You should not even see design gathering parts in the list of items in the uses tab.
There is a major difference in lack of functionality and business requirements. During the web-ex, everyone (PTC Product Managers and Senior Developers) understood that the current functionality is not a solution which is the standard business requirement. PTC is marketing is stating it is a solution according to the business requirements. The current UI is not usable though it functions.
I can see that the functionally was purely focused on current Windchill WTPart usage links which is very limited.
I believe I need to have a meeting with your Marketing and Product Managers of WTPart, MPMLink, ESI integration. So, I can demonstrate the simple standard requirement. BOM management is one of the most crucial requirement to any success of implementing WTPart management.
