in MPMLink Manufacturing BOM, be able to specify if the usage link is an assembly operation or a material transformation

in MPMLink Manufacturing BOM, be able to specify if the usage link is an assembly operation or a material transformation

In a Engineering BOM, all the usage links are assemblies (an asm uses components or sub asm ...)

But in a Manufacturing BOM, we have some assembly usage links (generaly the top levels between asm and leaf components inherit from engineering BOM).

But under manufactured components , we will find some "transformation" levels : finished component  <- semi fnished part <- raw material

The problem in MPMLink and more specially in CreoView, is that, that kind of manufacturing BOM do not display correctly:

- finished component / semi fnished part / raw material can be positionned to same place one other alls ...

- some components are not displayed depending of the modifications done between the eBOM and mBOM

And then we are not able to use CreoView for annotating pocess plans operations

MPMLink and mBOM usage links should support assembly and transformation steps . (may be just an attribute on the usage link)

And CreoView should use this (attribute filtering in the ConfigSpec) for diplaying a correct visualization of each steps in the process plans ...

Cause in this case, the Pview viz is un usable as all semi finished part are displayed above finished part at position matrix 0.0.0 (even if we add an IBA on the usage link and filter on it in the BOM ConfigSpec)

-for the "material transformation" mBOM link, abiltity to use an  non integer value for the quantity when the unit is each.

When the BOM usage link is an "assembly" operation, it is normal that the quantity (when unit is each) was an integer: as we can not mount an half of a part.

But when the the BOM usage link is a "transformation" operation, the quantity should be a double. As a single finished part could be manufactured with a quantity >1 from a single raw material.

For example a single raw material where we manufacture in one operation 3 resulting finished parts. in the mBOM I will have  a finished WTPart, and as a child , the raw material WTPart, quanity 1/3 unit each.

If I set quantity 1 . It will totally disturb the MRP !   we don't want to purchase one raw material for one finished part, but one raw material for 3 finished parts

May be use the "allocation type" of the usage link to handle this

today, there's "consumed".  split in "consumed - assemble" and "consumed - manufactured"
