How to have different Date effectivities for same Part Revision?

How to have different Date effectivities for same Part Revision?

Hi all,

We have a requirement of setting 2 different Date effectivities for the same Part Revision.

When we are using the Change Notice / Change Task approach of setting effectivity, there is a OOTB validation / Check that combines the 2 date effectivities and calculates the resultant effectivity.

Say for Eg,.

If CN1 / Change task 1 specifies  effectivity as 31/3/2017 - Open ended

CN2 / Change Task 2 specifies effectivity as 10/5/2017 - Open ended

What we wanted is to set  2 different effectivities for that Part Revision namely

31/3/2017 - Open ended

10/5/2017 - Open ended

But system gives onl y1 effectivity , as  the following effectivity ( seems it is merging and calculating)

31/3/2017

I can understand on why this is like this, because system determines that the Part Revision, as a Net result should be effective on the earliest date between 2 CNs.

My question is , how to bypass or over ride this check , so that we get 2 effectivities.

The reason for us wanting this is that we share the CN1/Change task 1  to Supplier 1  and CN2 / Change Task 2 to another Supplier 2 , via 2 different Projects (ProjectLink).

The behavior here is that system needs the "winning" CN (in this case CN1) to be shared to a supplier inorder to see the effectivity.

The effectivity 1 should not be visible to supplier 2, the effectivity 2 should not be visible to supplier 1.

We are in Windchill 11.0 M010.

Please give your valuable thoughts.

Thanks & Regards

Hari

Re: How to have different Date effectivities for same Part Revision?

Date Effectivity has two concepts - you can set either Global or Context based effectivity.

Global means - this part is effective on this date any place it is used (unless there is a also a Context effectivity)

Context effectivity enables you to specify that the part is effective for a particular date in the Context of that part or assembly.  For example:

Part 001, Pump, Rev A:

Effective 7/1/17 in the Context of Water Cooler Product

Effective 7/15/17 in the Context of the Water Heater Product

In your case you could create a "Context" that is Supplier 1 and Supplier 2.  However when looking at Part 001 you would still see both Effectivity statements.

If you are using the Supplier Mgmt module you could have different Supplier Orgs and AML for the Parts for Supplier 1 and Supplier 2 - each would get their own effectivity and each Supplier would be able to see only their parts.
