How to drive Quantity of an item in a BOM based on Options & Variants rules?

Hi,

With Options & Variants capability in windchill 9.1, how we can build the rules (Parameters, expressions, constraints, case tables, etc.,) to drive the quantity of an item under an Advanced Configurable Part?

Example:

Consider below BOM:

Top_Part (Adv Config Part)
Part1 (for option1) Qty - 1
Part2 (for option2) Qty - 2
Part3 (for both options) Qty - 2 Meters for Option1 and 5 Meters for Option2

While configuring, selecting option1 should result in:

Top_Part
Part1 Qty - 1
Part3 Qty - 2 Meters

Selecting option2 should result in:

Top_Part
Part2 Qty - 2
Part3 Qty - 5 Meters

Can you please help in this?

Thanks,
Prabhakaran V.

It's possible by speciying qty parameter in BOM structure on Uses:

Do you know if this is possible in 10.2 M030, if yes can you provide steps to reproduce the parameter in Quantity?

I haven't tried on 10.2 (11.0 is what I tried) but if you can load the sample Options and Variant loader it shall be self explained, just make sure to set PSE preference and open the config module in PSE

I do not have access to the sample, could you post some screen shots of the expression and how to setup.  I have looked at help and am still confused, would save me a ton of time and be greatly appreciated.

Greg,

Did you get an answer on loading the sample Options & Variants.

I am on 10.2 M030. Do I have any luck on getting the sample into the system??

Thanks,
