To perform a real Windchill mass replace of part in all applicable BOM structures

To perform a real Windchill mass replace of part in all applicable BOM structures

The current functionality of the windchill mass replace of a component in bom structures requires that you insert the line number of the component(s) as well.  (this is not a real mass replace).

 

I am suggesting a real mass replace functionalitly in which the line number field is not NOT mandatory.   So in theory, when you enter the number to be replace, it will find all instances of that number found in all bom structures that is added to the change activity of the change notice.   When the number is replaced, it will swap it out on the same line number(s) and same quantity.

OOTB the Line Number field is not Manadatory for Mass Change Replace nor on Edit Part Usage.  We do support using Line Number if you have multiple usages with the same part to identify which one, but it is not mandatory.  Here is a screen shot.  Did you perhaps customize your system?

Jeff, 

Which datecode of Windchill are you on?

@bradlawrence - I've checked both 11.0 and 10.2.  I don't have an older VM at my fingertips.

Hello

I have the same issue.

line number field is mandatory. Any ideas to remove that criteria?

preferences or properties?

Hello,

 

I believe this happens when Line Number is a 'Required' attribute in Usage Link. Any workaround to exclude the constraint in Mass Change?
