start Save As from Replace

start Save As from Replace

We develop machines as a construction kit and add during our production process custom option. Normally the design engineer can use a similar assembly as reference. It would be easier to combine the replace function in the product bill of material. Therefore the save as function shout be included in the drop down menu. Otherwise you need to copy your template separetly or get a copy without BOM.

  1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.
    The organization where I work is in the manufacturing industry. I am responsible for product development of ship cranes and coordinate improvements in our internal working process with BOM and special customer reequipments. Therefore, I collect input from around 120 users.
  2. What product & version are you currently running?
    now Windchill 11.2.1.14
    after 8. July Windchill 12.0.2.5
  3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.
    during work in BOM new assemblies are necessary and the user has to open these Component to use “save as” and move the new Component afterwards in the BOM.

    Less Windows are necessary,
    reduction of working time,
    working direct in the structure where the replacement is needed
