Prevent add item to ECN if it´s already assigned to an other active ECN

Prevent add item to ECN if it´s already assigned to an other active ECN

Hi

Need a feature to warn or block if a part is added to an ECN if it´s already part of an active ECN. This to prevent parallell changes. 

Example: part 1234 revision A is added to one ECN and revised to part 1234 revision B. Now a user add part 1234 revision B to an ECN and revised to C. C will be a copy of B in that moment. Changes are now done at both B and C. When the ECN´s/Parts are released revision C will not contain changes done in version B. To support this use case, Windchill need to support branching/merging (as Pro/Intralink 3.4).

To prevent users to run in to this issue, Windchill shall warn/block if a part is added as affected item.

I'm terrified by the idea that this is actually possible and (possibly) in accordance with the current spec. This should in my opinion be handled as a bug because the spec surely must be faulty.

Good improvement idea!
