"Released" data may exist in one of several life cycle states, which would include, for example, "Released" and "Team Issued". In order to supply accurate part usage information to suppliers via an Info*Engine-based web service integration, the Query-Tree webject (which may be used to traverse multiple BOM levels) needs the ability to handle multiple states. Only one is currently supported. This would also apply to Views, allowing both Design and Manufacturing Views to be returned, based on a known precedence
As an alternative solution, supporting multiple SELECTBY_LIFECYCLE_STATE parameters, or a comma-separated (or "delim" attribute) would be address the immediate deficiency.
