In PDM-link Structure BOM,
Apart from part icon, Replacement parts display as child parts.
While exporting the BOM, how to differentiate it and send it to supplier/other Unit.
Note: Using PDM link only, not project link.
Yes, as a option I need to send the replacement parts also.
Is there a way the others should treat them as a replacement part not as child part by seeing the BOM structure?
Have you try an export to importable spreadsheet?
You can chose to export the replacements and it is in separated sheet.
It is not so nice but maybe it is better then the BOM export with replacement.
Also keep in mind that a unit is same for replacement part as the original part. So the unit is same.
Another way is to create own custom BOM report but for that you need to know customization methods.
Windchill help describes general steps how to crate custom BOM report
@HelesicPetr suggestion might be correct if its about formatting but the MultiLevel BOM with Replacements does indicate that the line is a replacement. There is a column for sub type that indicates if Substitute or Alternate:
Above is how it exports so it should be easy to see that this is not a child component.
You right but if you need to create separate sheet with replacement, custom report is the best way.
Also, you can create VB script in a excel, and use a input from the multilevelbom results.
