Support manual selection of occurrences in Managed Variant Specs

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.


2. What version of Windchill are you currently running?
12.1.1

3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.

4. What is the use case for your organization?
The ability to manually selecting occurrences as well as usages would give the full flexibility to generate multi-spec configuration contexts.

5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?
